Want to Make Some Mommy Cash?


Now is a great time to sell us the Halloween Costumes, Toys, Swimwear and Coats your kids have outgrown! The clothes should be clean and free of stains and holes.  We pay cash for any items that we are able to accept. Remember we buy all seasons, all day, every day! 


We are especially looking for Boy clothes sizes 3 and up through youth 18/20.  Plus Girl sizes 7 through youth size 16. We are buying shorts, graphic tees, denim, dresses, swimsuits, sweaters, raincoats, shoes, sandals, dancewear, ballet shoes and cleats.

Clothes must be freshly laundered, laid flat in a clean plastic bin or laundry basket.  We cannot accept items in scented garbage bags.  The items must be free of pet fur or the smell of cigarette smoke.  We are buying items that are in a very gently used condition and were purchased new in the last two years.  Toys should be clean, in good working order and have all of their parts and pieces.  You do not need an appointment and we operate on a first come, first serve basis.  Call the store with any questions at 757-301-3900.
