Gently Used - Buying, Selling, & In Search Of

We love to reuse! Why not save money and resources, especially when babies and toddlers grow out of things so quickly! We have a wide selection of gently used clothing (sizes preemie through 5T), cloth diapers, baby gear, maternity clothing and related items, toys, books, shoes, and more! 
Are you visiting or hosting a visitor with a baby? Check out our baby gear rental, via BabyQuip! You can rent car seats, cribs, strollers, toys, and more, and have them delivered to your doorstep!

What do you buy?

We may buy any of the following: children's clothing from size preemie though 5T, including swimwear, outerwear, and socks, maternity clothing, nursing bras, tops, and dresses, baby gear (i.e. bouncer seats, pack-n-plays, walkers, etc.), toys for newborn though pre-K ages, shoes from newborn through size 12. For larger items and gear (such as bouncers, swings, strollers, bassinets), please check with us by calling, emailing, texting, or sending us a Facebook message. Our phone number is 607-272-1237. We have limited space for larger items, thus checking with us first is great and most efficient!

What DON'T you buy?

We do not buy used car seats, electric breast pumps, recalled products, broken items, stained items, dirty items, items with odors, and items with pet hair.

How does your pricing work?

We will assess what we are interested in buying and provide you with an estimated retail value for your items. If you choose to take store credit, you are getting 50% of the estimated retail value; if you choose to take cash, you are getting 40% of the estimated retail value. You get to pick which you'd like!

I have a large and/or expensive item, do I just bring it in?

We ask that you text us a photo and brand name/model of larger items before bringing them in. Our number is 607-272-1237. We do take larger items, however space is limited! If an item in brought in disassembled, we ask that you build it in store. Keep in mind that all items with electronic features must have working batteries. 

Are there any days that you don't buy?

No! We buy any time during normal store hours. If we are busy or a large quantity is brought in, we may not be able to look through your items immediately. We always offer drop off, meaning you can bring in your items, fill out the paperwork, and go on your way! We'll call/text/email you when we've gone through things and let you know what we an offer. After that, you can come back (if needed), whenever it works for you; there's no rush!

Do I have to wait for you to look through my items?

No! This is a unique service that we offer! You can bring your items in, fill out our drop off form, and get on with your day! We will contact you once we have looked through your items (this typically takes no more than one day!). Once we contact you, you can stop back any time during normal store hours (if you need to). There's no rush to pick up anything!

Do I need an appointment to sell items to you?

No! If you have a larger quantity, you can simply drop items off and fill out our paperwork. We'll contact you when we finish looking things over and there's no rush to come back and collect anything; you do it whenever it works for you! We can usually complete large buybacks in 1-2 days. Sometimes we get quite busy and may not be able to look through your items immediately. If you are coming in from out of town just to sell to us, we suggest coming to drop things off first, then leaving time to look around or run other errands in Ithaca, in case we need more time to look through your items. We'll always do our best to work through things as quickly as possible.

What season are you buying now?

All seasons! We always buy all seasons, year round! So, you don't have to save those summer clothes until spring to sell, or save all that bulky winter gear in the closet until fall. Bring it all now!

Can I donate leftover items?

Yes! We are happy to pass on any items that we are not able to buy. We pass these items on to local organizations, such as Catholic Charities, Salvation Army, BirthRight, and the Ithaca Pregnancy Center. We are not able to donate larger gear, mostly because these organizations cannot take these items. We also have a Free Bin in store, where people often leave items in hopes that someone else can make use of them!
