Why should I shop consignment for my child?
When you shop in the consignment section at Kids Trading Company you will find brand name clothes at a fraction of their retail price. You will find clothes with tags still attached and clothes that have been very gently used. You will find baby accessories and toys used only a few times before outgrown. Does your child grow out of clothes quicker than you can take them out of the closet? You should shop consignment! Here is what our customers have to say about shopping our consignment items:
"I've been shopping at Kid's Trading Company for about 10 years, by far the best second hand beautiful children's clothing I've seen... and the staff is always cheerful and helpful." -- Sombra W.
"Kids Trading Company is the only kids Consignment store I will shop at!They only take items that are in great condition so you don't have to weed through a bunch of garbage ;)
Also the owner is very sweet and helpful!! I would recommend this store to any one and every one with kids//grandkids!!!" -- Kristen E.
"Kid's Trading Company is my favorite place to shop for clothes for my daughter! I have always managed to find something for her in the store - whether it be new or consignment, I NEVER manage to leave the store empty handed. The quality of the consignment clothes is excellent as well - in 'like new' condition and the prices can't be beat! :)" -- Lindsay G.
What if I want to consign my child's items?
You are welcome to bring your items in for consignment by booking an appointment. We book your appointment on a seasonal basis.
Anything we decide to keep in the store, will stay out on the rack for three full months.
You receive 40% of anything that sells during those three months. After the items have been on the rack for one full month, they will be marked down by 25% off the original price. After another full month, they will be marked down by 50%. Any unsold items after three months will be returned to you, or donated if you prefer.
Our spring/summer season lasts from January to May and our fall/winter season lasts from July to November.
Please book ahead as we book up quite far in advance! We start booking spring appointments in October, and fall appointments in April. Please give us a call or send us an email to make an appointment:
