Consignment shops for kids clothes?

Pass It On Sale clothesSean emails:

My wife and I just had a baby and would love to dress the kid in all kinds of ridiculous outfits. However, they grow so dang fast that it just doesn't make sense to spend the cash on something new if they're only going to wear it once or twice. Do you or your readers know of any good consignment shops in the area specifically for kids clothing?

This isn't a shop exactly, but it's something Sean and his wife should definitely check out: the big Pass It On consignment sale for kids stuff, which if tradition holds, will be back in August. There are a handful of other similar sales throughout the year (see the comments on that post).

So, got a suggestion for Sean and his wife? Please share!

Not a consignment but a good source of gently used--I've had great luck with EBay, especially for infants and young children. Sellers often list "lots" (sometimes dozens of items) and the prices are unbeatable.

There is one in Saratoga on Weibel Ave, just south of Hannaford's. Also, eBay is an awesome resource for gently used kids clothes. My wife and I also found great bargains when we buy "off-season". It can be tricky guessing you're kid's size 6 months from now, but it can work!

Trendy Tots in Niskayuna is great. They are on Baker Street, right off of Union.

Twice a year sale in Chatham. Next one is in September.

I attended the Pass It On sale in March. The next one (according to the advertising there at the time) will be the weekend of October 12 (Columbus Day?), and the location is somewhere in Clifton Park.
Also a word of advice: go early. Yes, the stuff goes to 50% off on the last day or 2, but at that point it is very much picked over, and what's an extra $2-3 for the good stuff?

I pass by this store on Columbia Tpke in East Greenbush all the time. It's near the bowling alley, but a little hidden. I haven't been to it, but I know it exists!

Itty Bitty Trends, 418 Delaware Ave., Albany. Good prices. Don't tell anyone else though so we can keep the deals to ourselves!

Bruce Fence Company came through for me in a big way last spring. Another local fence company gave me a price and a date and then faded away. (Perhaps a bigger job came along, but have the decency to call.) Needless, to say this failure to keep the date as promised created frustration with the neighbor on the other side of the fence. From my first telephone contact with Bruce to my first visit in their office and then through to completion of the job, every interaction was friendly and professional. The entire transaction went like clockwork.
