If you’ve got out grown children's clothes forcing their way out of the draws and wardrobes, bag some up and bring them down!
We buy Summer clothes from March/July and Autumn/Winter from September/January (British weather depending).
Leave your items with us (Monday to Friday) and we will get back to you as to what we need and how much we can offer you. We aim to do this the same day but at busy times its can be up to one week.
Sometimes, we might be full in some sizes so we might not be buying much. Feel free to contact us before bringing several bags in!
Some of our favourite brands are Boden, Joules, Gap, Polarn O. Pyret, Monsoon, JoJo Maman Bébé... We do not take supermarket brands and brands such as Primark or Matalan.
