In an attempt to help saving the planet, all efforts are welcome! Participate in the slow fashion movement and shop second-hand -oops! we meant “pre-loved” clothing, accessories and books for your children. You can do style on a mini budget!
Here is our selection of second-hand children clothing stores in the Bay Area. Check their respective website for opening hours and specific terms.
Indeed, there are several ways to do second-hand fashion. You can do sell/trade, which means you will get store credit for the items you are selling (and you’ll get more value than cash, between 45% to 60%), you can also sell and get cash (between 30% to 40%). If you go for consignment, the previous applies except you get cash or store credit POST-SALE. It’s up to you.
