Brooklyn is lucky enough to have 6 kids’ resale/consignment shops that offer parents relief from buying at full prices and also an outlet for their kids’ used clothing. (View the full list of Brooklyn consignment shops here). We can now increase that number of locations to 7 with the grand opening of a new kids’ consignment shop in Greenpoint this weekend.
The new shop is called Lulu’s Closet, not to be confused with LuLu’s Then & Now in Park Slope.
The owner, Lisa, named the store “Lulu’s Closet” after her daughter Lulu’s closet, which had become overburdened with outgrown clothes. Lisa “decided to open the store when (she) saw (her) 14 month old daughter’s clothes that she had grown out of” were not only piling up in her home, but that some of the clothes might be desirable to other parents. She also knew she was not alone. She knew a lot of parents wanted to find a way to make use of their kids’ clothes and save some money buying new ones.
Interested in selling clothes?
They only take and sell clothes that are clean and in great condition, no stains or holes.
What you can buy at the store:
Besides a selection of clothes for newborn to 4t (which will expand in the future) they have a range of shoes, some brand new. A novel idea: a fun sock bin full of trumpet socks amongst other brands 4 for $1 (kids loose socks on a daily basis) and used tights 2 for $1.
Need some fortification after a visit to the store? They are across from the delicious Peter Pan Bakery (make sure to get a donut).
718a Manhattan Av close to Norman Av
They are open 7 days a week 10 – 7 closed major holidays.
Grand opening is this Saturday.
