Last year a friend of mine told me about a cool new children’s recycled clothes store that just opened up in Santa Clara. I mentioned that my young daughter was outgrowing her clothes faster than I could store them, and that I didn’t know what to do with them or her old toys. My friend tried to explain the store to me, but was so excited, she told me to just go and visit it.
Kid to Kid, located at 2666 Homestead Road in Santa Clara, CA 95051, is a store that you can sell your gently used kids clothes and either walk away with cash in hand, or get store credit. I told my friend this was too good to be true, and went to the store myself. She was not kidding and I now have a new local favorite kid’s store.
Kid to Kid is a small store, but not small on the quality of merchandise or service. The staff is wonderful and very knowledgeable of their inventory. You can make an appointment by calling (408) 244-2248, or you can stop by with questions. If you are going to sell clothing, they only allow freshly laundered items, preferably stain free and wrinkle free. (It will go from your hands to the racks if approved, and they like having their stock clean.) They accept sizes birth to kid size 8. They also accept maternity wear, cribs, toddler beds, strollers, high chairs, bouncers and playpens. If you are going to sell toys the little ones have outgrown, then please clean the toy(s) first before bringing them in. The cleaner and better condition, the more you might get for them. They offer great prices for the used goods, and if you opt for store credit, they will give you an extra 20%! I have sold them numerous items that both my kids have outgrown, and have used the money to purchase ‘new’ clothes, toys, books, shoes and even movies the same day. If you sign up for their newsletter and mention it when you are checking out, you get an additional discount, too. It is always best to call ahead, visit the store, or check their website to see what their current need is as it changes week to week, season to season.

Overall, Kid to Kid is an excellent local store to visit and shop if you have kids under the age of 10. The season is changing again, so meet me at Kid to Kid!
