Shopping Tip: Gently Used Children's Clothes in Sturbridge


For those of you looking for children's clothing, I encourage you to stop by the Children's Crossing store in Sturbridge, MA.

Children's Crossing is a used clothing store.  The concept is simple.  If you have gently used, high quality children's clothing that you wish to sell, make an appointment to bring your goods to the store.  The owners will review your items and make you an offer on the pieces they want to purchase for their inventory.  You may take that amount as cash or as store credit.

On the shopping end, Children's Crossing offers clothing from newborn up to kids size 12.  Today, they had a 10% off sale, and I found four pairs of pants for my 11-year-old for $18 and change.  One item was a brand-new pair of Land's End jeans.  A steal!

The store also buys and sells children's accessories and gear, games, and shoes.  They just opened a used women's department, which includes maternity pieces.

In speaking with Katie, one of the owners, she mentioned that the store particularly needs clothes for boys ages 8 and up.  Pants tend to fly out of the store on a regular basis, and as parents of boys in this age group know, it is a challenge to keep the knees of these kids' pants intact.

Children's Crossing is open from 10 AM to 5 PM Monday through Friday, and 10 AM to 4 PM on Saturday.  The store is located at 479 Main Street in Sturbridge, which is Route 20, next to Sturbridge Coffee.

Here's an idea: Stop in at Sturbridge Coffee for its Friday morning children's music hour at 10 AM, then wander over to Children's Crossing for some summer clothes for your kids.  Let me know what deals you find!
