Life with kids is always unpredictable, but one thing is certain: kids grow. Or, perhaps more accurately stated, kids outgrow. With the constant need to buy, buy, buy, it can be hard to keep up, and that’s why we recommend shopping resale at your local Kid to Kid.
Resale tends to have a negative stigma, but there are so many benefits to shopping gently-used.
First of all, the cost savings are incredible. The common used item in a Kid to Kid store costs 70% less than what you would pay at the mall, and that’s on high-quality brands like Baby Gap, Gymboree, and Children’s Place, among others.
Secondly, by buying gently-used items, you’re helping your local Chattanooga community. The Kid to Kid business model provides a way for families to purchase both new and gently-used items for an affordable price.
The Chattanooga Kid to Kid has a large selection of children’s apparel, sizes premie to 16. Our Premie selection is known for the biggest supply in town. From dance leotards to hats, earrings, ties, and shoes–they have everything under the sun to bring your family style on a budget.
Great Items Available at Kid to Kid:
- Clothes: Girls and boys, size Premie to 16, maternity, outerwear, shoes, dancewear, sportswear, and costumes
- Baby Gear: strollers, high chairs, car seats, baby carriers, pack ‘n plays, swings, exersaucers
- Toys & Furniture: Toys for all ages, new Melissa and Doug toys, cribs and bassinets, mattresses, books and DVDs, learning toys, and toddler toys
Part of the Community:
Kid to Kid Chattanooga is owned by local Chattanooga resident, Lyn Shepherd. Shepherd first opened the store in 2013 after falling in love with the resale concept.
“Resale just makes sense,” says Shepherd. “By offering cash for good quality items families no longer use, we’re able to provide a valuable service to our community.”
Shepherd’s Kid to Kid store has been actively helping the community since day one. She provides discounts to active military families and foster parents. The store also works closely with charities such as the Samaritan Center and Foster Parent’s Closet, and Kid to Kid Chattanooga commonly sponsors all of the local school foundations, including District 9 and Jfest.
