What is a Children’s Resale Store?
A kid’s consignment shop offers quality children’s clothing and toys at a discount because they are second-hand. Families spend less money when they shop. They also can make money if they sell or consign their used or outgrown items to the store.
Some stores pay for donated toys and clothing on the spot or offer store credit. Many love it because they do not have to wonder what price their items will sell for and do not have to wait to get that money in their pocket.
