Posted on | 23 Comments

Which children’s consignment shops are the best in the Upstate? Here’s what Kidding Around Greenville readers said when we asked them where they shop for the best deals on kids’ clothes. This list includes shops all over the Upstate that stock everything moms and moms-to-be need!

This article includes:
Kids Consignment Stores
Consignment Stores for All Ages
Affordable Retail for Kids Clothing

Admittedly my kids are not the cleanest and really, I don’t have the time or patience to keep them out of the mud or from spreading avocado all over their shirts at lunchtime, which is why I rarely ever buy new clothes for them. Besides the fact that new clothes aren’t cheap, I know I can get cute apparel for my messy kids at a really good price, which makes it easier on my sanity when they get them dirty and easier on my budget.

Must-Visit Kids Consignment Stores In Upstate, SC

Whippersnappers Kids & Maternity Resale Boutique

Whippersnappers (one of our sponsors) make good use of their smaller space, where you can find clothes for mom and baby and kids, plus baby carriers and infant gear, shoes, books, and puzzles. I’ve been there during one of their sales and everything was affordable and in good shape. Whippersnappers has locations in both Greenville and Spartanburg!

Whippersnappers is my favorite both to buy and sell. They pay cash on the spot for equipment and store credit for clothes/toys

Whippersnappers is by far my favorite. I bought 75% of my maternity wardrobe there. The store smells great and is well organized. I can get in and out wit what I need easily.

Once Upon A Child

One thing is true — Kidding Around Greenville readers love Once Upon A Child. I was hooked on this place during one of their semi-annual blowout sales. Almost all their clothes are in great condition and everything is organized neatly. They have clothes, toys, books, puzzles, shoes, baby gear, winter coats, and even a play area for kids. During one of their recent sales where everything marked clearance was a dollar, I walked out with a huge bag full of clothes for two kids for less than 20 bucks. Big win. They also sell locally made, cute hair bows and hats.

it is superfast and they pay cash. They usually take a good chunk of stuff and help me clean out quickly. I wouldn’t say they pay a ton but when you have bins and bins of stuff, it’s a nice way to clear out.

I had luck buying for my son up until about size 5t. If you have a daughter(s), I’d say it’s great at least for buying, for all ages. I’ve tried several times to consign there with very nice clothing, quite a bit with tags on. I’ve maybe sold 5 things there, for pennies basically since I’ve had my son.

Kakalaki Kids

Kakalaki Kids located in Anderson is raved about by Kidding Around readers! They have a large selection of quality clothing as well as essential accessories, shoes, socks, and more, including name-brand and new items.

Kakalaki Kids in Anderson for sure!!! Lots of selection-both new and used! And they are super nice and helpful!

Lindsey T. B.

Kakalaki Kids!!! Hands down! They go above and beyond to get the perfect little things for our littles. Nice quality name brand consigned clothes. Not stuff you can just go and get at Once Upon a Child. They have a great mixture of both consigned and one of a kind items in Anderson. They carry some brand too that no other store in Anderson Carry!

Kids & More Consignment

A massive shop at 20,000 square feet, Kids & More Consignment is a deal-lovers dream. You can find clothes for the whole family. They also have furniture, houseware items, DVDs, activity tables, learning toys, and super cute hair bows for little girls.

Kids and More in Mauldin is a good one too

Kids&More in Mauldin beside Tractor supply… great selection, clothes in new to lightly used condition plus they have clothes for all ages no just the kiddos.

Consignment shops also carry gently used baby gear, strollers, toys, books, and all kinds of stuff that kids use once and then never look at again. And if you’ve got barely worn Christmas dresses or a Halloween costume your eight-year-old suddenly changed his mind about or a nursing chair in great shape or shoes your kid grew out of way too fast, many consignment stores will give you credit or cash for your items. Also, sign up for emails from your favorite shops and like them on Facebook so you can stay updated on their latest sales.

H&M

Though not consignment, H&M has a large selection of brand new clothes that are very inexpensive. They have a great selection of children’s clothes. They have locations in the Westgate Mall in Spartanburg and Gaffney at the Outlet Marketplace.

H&M has adorable clothes and they’re really inexpensive. We love the pants because they have adjustable waistbands

The Children’s Place

This is one of my favorite places to buy children’s clothing. If you subscribe to their mailing list then you will regularly receive coupons. When you combine these with sale prices and rewards credits, the prices are less than consignment stores. I like that I can shop from home and return items to the store if something doesn’t fit. Nearly all of the pants come with an adjustable waistband, which really helps clothes last longer size-wise.

I hope you will visit these stores soon. If so be sure to let them know Kidding Around Greenville sent you! Would you add any local children’s consignment stores to this list?

I have shopped at most of the stores listed. But my favorite store on the Simpsonville side of town is Kids Korner on Woodruff Road. They have a great selection of quality clothes at good prices and have recently expanded their store so they could fit more toys and furniture type items. Twice a year (well before the season is over), they have 70% off sale. Nothing like getting an almost new Gymboree shirt for a buck. I also really like Once Upon a Child on Woodruff. They have a great selection of shoes and a huge selection of clothes.… Read more »

I agree with Once Upon a Child!! I’ve gotten some fantastic looking things in there for only a few dollars. Excited to try some of these new ones I didn’t know about!

Personally, I find Bargain Babies in Simpsonville to be way over priced. I get better prices on brand new items at the retails stores such as Gymboree, Gap, etc. The merchandise in this store doesn’t turn/sale and the racks are always jammed and not stoppable. The store is always neat, clean and organized. Just not what I would expect to pay for consignment clothes.

Also, A Child Again and Pampered Little People on Wade Hampton Blvd. have a great selection at good prices.

I like Jordan’s Closet too. The owner is super nice and they always have cute things at great prices. Their merchandise also turns quickly so they usually have different things.

I love Second Time Around. I’ve been shopping there since my nephew was little (he’s 25 now). Best place in town for smocked and embroidered items for a fraction of what they’d cost new. I’m now buying for 2 granddaughters and loving it. Owners are fantastic to work with.

I am finally able to look at this list. Thank you for sharing. A Child Again closed a few months ago. I was heartbroken. I am trying Kidsignment now and have liked it so far.
