  • No, I think they are over priced for used clothes.

  • Same here, they seem very high. I tried to sell them some items, and they were only going to give me .50cents for a pair of shoes worn once, that thet would turn around and sell for 8 or 9bucks.

  • I agree that they're overpriced but I like taking stuff there twice a year to sell. A lot of times I get $100 or so which helps w/ the next season's clothes. I don't normally buy stuff there.

  • Sometimes - I think it depends on the location. And on the age of your child. When my son was an infant, I found great stuff all the time. As he's gotten older, not so much.

    I don't think they pay particularly well either.

  • I think most of there stuff is TOO over priced, and they offer you NOTHING for your stuff. I took a RACK of clothes there, i'm talking about 3 FULL baskets of clothes, and left with 10$! Its ridic. atleast the ones here in VA!

  • I love it.

    Answer by extremelibrary at 8:53 PM on Jan. 5, 2011

  • The one here closed years ago and I couldn't have been happier to see it go. Way overpriced to buy AND when you tried to sell, they would not purchase anything from you unless it was brand new with tags. Uh, then it shouldn't have been a resale/consignment shop to begin with.
