You’ve heard of the three R’s (reduce, reuse and recycle), but do you know the fourth? Resale! In our tight economy, SavvyMoms can help the planet and their bank accounts—by turning to one of Vancouver’s many children’s resale stores. Whether you’re a buyer or a seller of youngsters’ pre-loved clothing, toys and gear, we’ve picked a few faves to get you started.
Any good tour of Vancouver’s children’s consignment stores starts at MacGillycuddy’s For Little People in MacKenzie Heights. Celebrating 24 years in business, MacGillycuddy’s offers smart shoppers gently used kids’ designer labels like Catimini, Bon Point, Kenzo and Marèse at a fraction of the price for new. From basics to special occasion wear, consigned items are automatically marked down over time, so most of the Fall/Winter collection is now 50% off resale prices. The gently used toys and books will keep your kiddies busy in the play area, while you take advantage of great prices.
The next stop on our new-to-you tour, Classy Kids Consignment in Dunbar, did not disappoint. This fashion-forward store promises high-end children’s consignment and maternity wear and delivers the goods. Bargain prices for mint condition, fashionable threads, like a knitted dress by Deux par Deux for her and IKKS pants for him, caught our savvy shopper’s eye. But Classy Kids is more than a resale clothing business to owner Celine Cassidy; once a month, Celine invites a needy family into her store after hours for a “shopping spree for free”. Now, that’s classy.
