Kids' Consignment Shop
You really like Sugarlump, a small store tucked into a quiet row of shops in the Madison Valley neighborhood. Sugarlump carries a selection of high-end, name-brand children’s and maternity clothes, carefully selected to be in perfect condition — no big-box store brands allowed. You’ll get a “great deal on high-quality clothes” and “the greatest finds,” according to the store’s number one fans. And while you’re there, be sure to look for trendy new items such as See Kai Run shoes, stylish diaper bags and natural rubberwood toys.
You gave Seattle-based online consignment boutique Stella + Jack raves for its prices, great deals and good selection. The boutique sells infant and toddler items, and girls’ and boys’ clothes, shoes, toys and accessories, but with a twist on traditional consignment. Fill out a form online, and your items will be picked up at your home, posted to the site, and donated if not sold. Sweet and incredibly easy (and that means a lot to a sleep-deprived parent).
Children’s consignment boutique Paron’s Closet is a small shop in Wallingford Center that sells clothes for children ages 12 and younger, as well as shoes, maternity clothes and a selection of new items. You like its “great quality” and “great prices.”
Lynnwood’s Jack & Jill Consignment sells just about everything for kids: clothes (up to age 16), shoes, toys, nursery items, you name it. The selection is deep and wide, and shopping there is like a treasure hunt — you never know what you might find. You love it for its “great selection of gently used items at amazing prices” and call it “extremely organized.”
Other finalists include the twice-yearly consignment event Bumps & Babies Fair, held in Seattle, and the popular Me ‘N Moms, which grew from a small shop in North Ballard to a three-store chain with locations in downtown Ballard, Issaquah and Lynnwood.
