Where to Sell Baby & Kids’ Clothes: 21 Options (Both In-Person & Online)

Short Answer: You can sell baby clothes, kids’ clothes, toys, furniture, and other items to a variety of resale stores, consignment shops, and online. Places that buy baby and kids’ clothes include national consignment store chains like Children’s Orchard and Once Upon a Child, local shops like The Funky Frog and Upstate Kids, and websites like Bagsy. Some of these stores will buy your items outright; others will put the items for sale on consignment and pay you a percentage when and if they sell. You can also list and sell children’s items yourself using online marketplaces and classifieds. Below, we have the list of places where you can sell baby clothes, kids’ clothes, and other children’s items.

Where to Sell Baby Clothes & Kids’ Clothes

Brick-and-mortar consignment shops and resale stores accept baby clothes, kids’ clothes, and other children’s items in exchange for cash, check, or store credit. You can also find websites that act as online consignment shops.

Here you’ll find the list of stores where you can sell baby and children’s items locally and online, as well as places where you can sell things yourself through online listings.

Note: Children’s items that you sell or donate need to meet safety and quality standards. Most stores require a check with the Consumer Product Safety Commission or National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to be sure that items like car seats and furniture are not under recall or unsafe for children. If you have a car seat you cannot sell, consider recycling it through the Target car seat trade-in program or a similar recycling program.
