How do we select items?

  • We love modern, quality, mid-high end brands (ie. Gap is a baseline brand)
  • Small local shops
  • Items manufactured NO MORE than 4 years ago (look for a small label inside that indicates the years and/or season)
  • Condition: Our customers love items that are VERY GENTLY USED, and especially those pieces new with tags
  • Size: NB - age 10/12. We will consider brands in HIGH demand up to size 16 (ie. Ivivva, Under Armour, West49)
  • We DO accept (limited) Carters, Osh Kosh & Children's Place - if items are in PERFECT condition & dependant on current stock. Sets should be complete (ie. bodysuit, vest and pants). These brands are the first pulled from the floor when volume is high. We accept very little of these brands in sizes 6+. These items are generally NOT placed on our website unless the are new with tags
