Does it seem like your kid is constantly outgrowing his or her clothes? It’s probably reality. Children grow like weeds, and taking a trip to the mall or shopping online every time they need something new can get expensive. That’s where a resale or consignment shop steps in. These stores take in or buy gently used clothing and sell those garments at greatly reduced costs — and many of them offer high-end or brand-name options.
Here, we’ve compiled a list of 11 top kids resale shops in metro Detroit and Ann Arbor. Find one near you and take your kiddo on a bargain shopping spree.
