Kids grow so fast! Buying only brand new clothes for your little one can get expensive when they require an entirely new wardrobe every few months. This is why shopping for used kids’ clothing online is a fantastic idea. You can buy gently worn clothes for a fraction of the price it costs to buy new. Plus, buying used clothing is an easy way to support a more sustainable fashion culture. In this article, I’ll share some of my favorite online consignment shops for kids’ clothing.
Best Online Consignment Shops for Used Children’s Clothing
It’s unreal the things you can find in a kids’ online consignment shop. Brand new clothes, unopened toys, strollers, carriers, and everything else you can imagine for your littles. The best part about shopping for used kids’ clothing online is that you can buy everything you need for a fraction of the regular amount you would pay if you bought new. The next best part, you don’t have to leave the house to do it. Just hop online to find everything you need for your little ones.
After years of shopping both online and in-store at kids consignment shops, I’ve started to compile a list of some of the best online consignment shops I’ve found.
Organic, vintage, sporty, or classic, whatever the style, you can find it on Kidizen. Kidizen offers clothing and other essential items like books and toys for babies, toddlers, kids, and mamas. You can shop for clothes under a certain price point (under $10) or you can shop your favorites kids’ brands for clothing that still has the tags attached. Be aware when you order from Kidizen that all sales are final. You can get a refund if your order was not shipped, if it doesn’t arrive at its destination, or if the order shows up and it’s not what you ordered.
Poshmark offers way more than just kids consignment clothing but it offers a great selection of kids clothes. You can search through popular selections (pink baby dresses), top-selling brands (Carter’s, Disney), or by what’s trending (Care Bears, Sesame Street) to find kids’ clothes, toys, and books. You can even narrow down your search using filters like color choice, price point, and condition (all conditions versus with tags).
At Children’s Orchard, you can find gently used children’s clothing, shoes, toys, and equipment up to 70% off what you would pay at mall store prices. Shop everything from newborn and infant clothes to kids’ outwear, sleepwear, swimwear, shoes, boots, and even costume and dancewear.
The ThreadUP website is one of my favorites. It’s super well organized to make shopping as easy as possible. You can shop for kids’ clothes under $10 or even second hand clothes that still have the tags on them. And, if you feel a little left out, there are lots of options for you to choose from on ThredUP as well. ThreadUP carries luxury consignment items with top brand names like Gucci, Burberry, and Diane von Furstenberg. Also, for mamas-to-be, ThreadUP has an amazing selection of stylish maternity clothes.
Shop Tomorrows is different from any of the other online thrift stores on this list because it doesn’t require any exchange of money. Instead, you can trade your used clothing in exchange for your next purchase. Simply hop on the website, browse through the clothes, click what you want, and you can pay with tokens that you’ve either earned (by listing and selling items) or by purchasing them. Be aware that there is a $4.99 fee per transaction and a $7 fixed shipping cost.
Don’t be thrown by the name, Toycycle is more than just used kids’ toys. You can shop for everything from clothing to toys, and baby gear. Toycycle makes it easy to search for what you need with filters for age (infant to school age), product categories (gear, clothing, clearance), and condition (minor flaws to new). I’ll admit, the Toycycle website isn’t as fancy or high-tech as some of the others ones I’ve listed, but it gets the job done.
On Swap.com you can find used clothing and shoes for everyone in the family. When shopping for your kiddos you can narrow down your search by looking for new arrivals, items that still have the tags on, or search through clearance items. On Swap.com, you can expect to find items that are up to 90% off retail pricing! If you order some items and don’t love them when they arrive, you have 14 days to send them back and shop.com will take care of the return shopping. And, all orders over $75 come with free shipping. It’s hard not to love swap.com.
I couldn’t have a list of online kids consignment shops without including Facebook Marketplace. Not only have I purchased a considerable amount of children’s clothing from this resource but, I’ve also sold a ton of kids’ stuff using Marketplace. You can really find anything on Facebook Marketplace. Simply type in your search term or use categories like price, item condition, or brand. With Facebook Marketplace you can find local sellers and go and pick up the item in person or, you can have items shipped to you.
Benefits of Buying Used Kids Clothes Online
With so many amazing online consignment stores, you never need to go over budget when shopping for your kids’ clothes again. You can find new and gently used items for a fraction of the cost that you would pay at a mall store.
While you’re online shopping for used kids’ clothes, you can also consider selling some of your old clothes. If you find that your closets are getting stuffed full of kids’ clothes and shoes that no longer fit, why not list them online. You can clean out your space and also make some extra money while you’re at it.
