buying and selling gently used kids clothes

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
hi, I'm new to this site, I was wandering if anyone knew of any good websites that you can sell and buy gently used baby and kids clothes? I've tried Ebay but the fees are expensive and I don't like the non payers and negative things from Ebay. I'm on a budget and like to buy gently used kids clothes for my kids and my daycare. Please let me know if you have any ideas! Thanks!

Have you tried any of the twice yearly consignment sales. Not sure if you area has them. But you can get some great clothes, gear, and items for very cheap. Try the website and see if there is a sale in your area. Or try google.. put children's consignment sales and your city and state.

FYI- i got a brand new jumparoo still in the box at one sale for $10.00. And new unopened diapers for $1.00- They were pampers.

Check it out and good luck.

Have you considered Craigslist? Craigslist is very popular where I live, and you can always score some great deals on clothing. I bought over 100 maternity clothes for $60 dollars! Many of them were in great condition, and some were just plain tshirts. You don't have any fees associated with craigslist.

Also, you may want to consider garage sales in the summer. You can stock up on clothes for very cheap! I bought way too many for my son over the summer and usually paid around 50 cents/item, some I spend up to $2.00 for name brand outfits, but all in all, a good deal!

As for selling, I'm not much help! I've only been buying lately!

Don't forget about eBay. We have an online auctions forum here at Mommysavers if you need some help getting started. Feel free to ask anything, believe me nothing is a stupid question.

I don't know if you have one in your area, but Once Upon a Child is a good place to buy and sell gently used kids clothes. I like to sell on ebay, but not buy.
