Trading/Selling Baby Stuff

Hi Everyone -

I was just wondering if there is a forum or place within this site for selling/buying/trading baby paraphenalia? My husband and I are "un-expectedly" expecting a new addition to our family at the end of January and are thinking we could save a ton of money buying certain things that are "gently used" (changing table We have a 14 month old son, and I know I was delighted to pass the items he'd grown too big for down to cousins and friends. Anyway, just wondering if this sort of space existed w/in cafemom.

Thanks much,
Melissa

  • try craigslist or freecycle.

    you can also do a group search for trading baby items or selling baby items.

  • I live in Stamford. With our son we bought just about everything new thinking we wanted all new stuff, but now that I see how little use a majority of the stuff actually gets I'm not so concerned about everything being brand new. I'm also a much more laidback mom now that I'm onto baby number 2 :) I purchased the Inglesina Zippy stoller for our son which has a car seat (made by a company called Compass) that's compatible with no other strollers...major bummer as most double strollers I've seen are compatible with at least 3 major brands (Graco Snugride, Britax Companion...etc.) We're hoping to find a changing table (preferrably with a few drawers for storage) and a barely used, never been in an accident Graco or Britax car seat so that we can snap it into the double stroller that we have to buy :) Also, I would like to find a Glider / Ottoman set for rocking the baby.

    Thanks so much!

  • I know your on the other side of CT but look up Once Upon a Child its a kids/baby consignment shop. I go to the one in Manchester. A lot of times you can get stuff with the tags still on it for a few $'s. As your baby grows if you have stuff thats still in good shape you can bring it back and they'll give you either store credit or cash for your stuff.
