  • I would never buy anything from walmart used.Used gap stuff is usually pretty good, especially their winter stuff. That is all that I know of.

  • gymboree, gap, old navy & Childrens place. I'm sure there are more but that's what I can think of off the top of my head right now.

    ONes that don't I would think would be like Kohls, Target and Kmart house brands.

  • I've noticed on Ebay in the last 6-8mos or so..... Gap isn't what it used to be. Really. Outerwear (esp Columbia!) is always a big resale money maker and QUITE durable.

  • I think Children's Place, Gap, Gymboree, and Levis are all pretty good.

    I have bought Faded Glory (from Wal-Mart) used, but it was extremely cheap, so there's not much resale value there.

  • Gymboree and Hanna Andersson were big for me when I used to sell on Ebay. There were times when I got way more out of those items than I ever expected. Children's Place, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger are all ok but Gymboree was the biggest seller.

  • Gymboree, Baby Gap and Children's Place have great clothes, they are the only places I get clothes for babies/toddlers. They stand up to a lot of washings and still look new.
