It's really fun to consign clothes. It's like you're "donating" them, but you're also making money in the process. It's like the best of both worlds. See how it works!

Instead of donating your clothing or throwing them away, have you ever thought to consign your children’s clothes? Chances are, your baby is a grownup now. So, there’s no need to keep those walkers, shoes or baby body carriers anymore. Consign them with one of these local Massachusetts consignment shops!

Consignment of children’s clothing and other items benefits both parents and the environment. It offers a smart and sustainable way to manage children’s ever-changing needs while also providing opportunities for financial gain and community engagement.

Advantages Of Consigning

One of the most significant advantages of consigning children’s clothing is the opportunity to earn money, or trade items for credit. As children outgrow their clothes and toys quickly, many of these items remain in excellent condition. If you’re like my baby, he didn’t even wear some of the clothes we bought for him.

Consignment shops provide a place where parents can bring in gently-used clothing, playpens, toys, and other children’s items and offer them for sale to other parents or caregivers.

How Do You Consign Children’s Clothes?

I have found some great deals on gently-worm baby clothes while consigning. It’s amazing to see what people part with after their babies grow.

The process of consigning is pretty straightforward. Parents can choose to sell their items directly to the consignment shop, which will then price and display them for other potential buyers. Alternatively, they can opt for consignment, where the shop takes a percentage of the sale once the item is sold. This approach allows parents to have a more active role in setting the prices and managing their inventory.

When the items find a new home and sell, the original owners can earn a portion of the proceeds, often in the form of cash or store credit. This credit can be used to purchase other children’s clothing or items available in the store, providing a seamless and cost-effective way to update a child’s wardrobe or toy collection.

Benefits of Consigning Children’s Items

Trading items for credit is not only economical but also environmentally friendly. By participating in consignment, parents actively contribute to the circular economy, promoting the reuse and recycling of products. Rather than discarding items that are still in excellent condition, they get a second life, reducing waste and minimizing their overall environmental impact.
