Clothes make the man, Mark Twain wrote, and they make the kid, too. I’ll add that clothing speaks to his or her parents as well, particularly for younger kids.
Psychological studies bear out that clothing makes quite an impact on how people view one another. Joseph had his coat of many colors, arousing jealousy and anger. The Prince traded his clothes with the Pauper, putting both boys in quite the pickle.
Clothes can malfunction (remember Super Bowl XXXVIII?), and tell everyone what the wearer does for a living. They let others know what teams a person roots for or where s/he goes to school.
Let Older Kids Browse for Their Clothes
Without question, clothing makes up the bulk of our inventory. Our store has inventory for boys and girls up to about age 12, give or take a year.
It’s very likely your older kids will want to pick out their own clothes. Let them do it here. It will be a lot easier on your wallet!
We make sure the clothes we accept for consignment are in good condition, clean, and free of snares, tears, and undue wear. And yes, we are aware this rhymes.
Our clothing racks are separated out by size for easy browsing. And while we do separate boys’ and girls’ items for simplicity’s sake, there are no hard and fast rules as far as we’re concerned about who wears what.
Retro is cool for older boys and girls, but the recent past rarely is. Unless your family are huge Royals fans, you probably won’t recall who won the last World Series. But truthfully, any commemorative sports clothing is cool regardless. We do get Cardinals, Sun Devils, and Diamondbacks gear, including caps.
We also carry shoes and athletic shoes, including heelys, which continue to be popular. And we have uniforms for Scottsdale Little League teams.
We’ve been building up quite a collection of jeans, including brands like Levi’s, Lee, Diesel, and Wrangler.
Check Out Our Other Secondhand Merchandise!
The “n More” part of our name includes gently-used books, toys, games, sports equipment, baby accessories, and yeah, a lot more.
We know kids are crazy for electronics. We don’t carry them beyond a couple of games that may come in. We do, though, buy many of our own electronics secondhand ourselves.
We have an amazing number of Beanie Babies, too. Remember those? Customers of all ages buy them. Some of them get them for their pets.
Replace Those Outgrown Baby Clothes
Don’t spend a bundle on everyday clothing for your baby. Come in and check out our consigned baby clothes, shoes, toys, and more. Babies grow fast, and we have the inventory to help you replace last month’s clothes!
Remember, the first year of life is the most dramatic in terms of development. The Mayo Clinic says a baby will double his birthweight at five months and triple it by his first birthday. He’ll grow up to one inch a month for his first six months, and a little under half an inch a month until 12 months.
Frankly, you probably wouldn’t recognize the kid from the newborn photos!
