Childish Things has new, bigger digs in Holman Plaza, just one block west of its former location, in North Seattle — that means more space for more great clothing. Readers like Childish Things for its policy of pricing the items you would like to sell on a walk-in basis, Monday–Saturday. You receive an offer on the spot, which you can exchange for store credit or cash. One reader says, “Amazing selection of kids’ stuff AND maternity! Easy to sell, no appointments, same-day cash.”
Although Kids on 45th still operates a brick-and-mortar store for browsing and consigning on 45th Street in the heart of Wallingford, it also has a super-cool subscription box service you should check out. This is how it works: They source the best used clothing from around the country to fill a box with seasonal clothing in your child’s size for an average of $3.29 per item — that’s as much as 90 percent off retail pricing. You can customize your box and order when ready — no sneaky styling or subscription fees to speak of.
Rhea Lana’s Consignment Event is an upscale children’s clothing pop-up event where parents can consign and buy gently used clothing. Readers say the prices are always reasonable, the events are well organized and the selection is huge!
