I just discovered the greatest kids' store ever! It's called Kid to Kid. Have you heard of it? It buys gently used kids clothes, toys and furnishings. And it only accepts good quality stuff; a lot of it looks practically new.
It's one of the stores you never notice unless you have kids. When my friend told me about it, I was a little skeptical. Second hand? Don't they usually smell? And I already buy all of Olive's clothes on the cheap at stores like TJ Maxx or Burlington Coat Factory. But I decided to check it out and found they have tons of cute stuff! Of course, it's always going to be hit or miss, but for my first experience, I bought five dresses and four pairs of pants for $35! They included brand names like The Children's Place, Old Navy and Tommy Hilfiger.
I was most excited about the pants because it is really hard to find just bottoms without buying a top. And don't you think those dresses (and bloomers!) are super cute?
Their website says they have 75 stores in 21 states, so I hope there's one near you.
