Where can I buy used kid's/baby's clothes other than Ebay?

I'm looking to buy used children's clothes/baby's clothes in bulk/on their own and the only place I've found so far is Ebay - I run a website selling used kid's clothes and after some success I'd like to buy more to get a couple of thousand items on the site if possible... I put up a journal about it on the marketplace but I don't think people really look at those... Anyone have any ideas on sites to buy in bulk? xD Thank you all.

  • If there's a newspaper, there are usually, in the classifieds/for sale section, lists of people who have things they want to sell. Around here they do, anyway, and there's almost always clothes in our paper... Especially if you have a paper that's just for ads and things, rather than a "news"paper, if you get what I mean. We have a "secondhand news" where people place ads...

  • Thrift store. Go to one that has a bag sale.... Fill the bag for $10 or whatever.

  • Another idea would be an estate auction. The boxes of clothes (and sometimes pallets) will often only go for $1 because no one wants to buy clothing at those auctions. You will be amazed at what you will find. If you end up getting adult clothing also, then maybe you could add more sections to your website.... adults, vintage, etc.

  • Craigslist, your local newspaper. Local second hand and thrift stores. Children's consignment stores.
