Kids Clothing Cottage
Monday, May 5, 2014 - 1:53pm
It seems like everytime we turn around, our kids are growing out of their brand new clothes: shoes, jeans and coats don't last long. One great idea to save your family money and not waste all those great, gently-used clothes is through consignment.
One place that is really a hidden jem in our city is The Kids Clothing Cottage located at 6338 Rochdale Blvd. in the north end of Regina. They offer a wide selection of stylish, gently-used and brand new clothes for ages newborn to teens. You only have to subscribe to their Facebook page (Kids Clothing Cottage) to know that merchandising and fashion is one of their true passions! They put together some great outfit suggestions to deck your little ones and growing fast ones from head to toe. They offer everything from clothes, sleepwear, accessories and shoes. We love seeing all the stylish pictures of what they have in each week along with the great deals. They offer Canadian and other famous brands like Mexx, BLU, Bench, Ragdoll n Rockets, Kushies, Yogini, Point Zero, Losan, Lime Apple, Krickets Petite Lem and more.
There is something for every kid, no matter what their style.
KB: How did you start Kids Clothing Cottage and how long have you been around?
KB: What types of items do you accept for consignment?
KB: What are some of the most popular/sought after items that people are looking for for babies? Toddlers? Kids?
Ages 8 - 10 years old and up, the children are leaning toward trendy and specific items. At these ages, children want to be consistent with popular styles and struggle a bit more with peers, so fittin in and feeling good about themselves is important. I really love helping these guys find what they need in either new or used clothing. I want them to feel great and confident in their clothing. Great fitting pants that are a good length, a few comfortable tee-shirts and a quality hoody and jacket are key, as well as a great pair of shoes! They don't need a tonne of stuff, but it should fit great and be in style. It is fun to add a vest, funky cardigan, cool boots, belt or hat to spice up an outfit sometimes for both boys and girls.
KB: What is the process if you want to sell your items/consign with Kids Clothing Cottage?
KB: What is the cost of consigning merchandise? Is there a percentage or a straight fee?
KB: How long does it take to sell consigned items? What happens to items that do not sell?
KCC: Items are generally on the racks for the full season. If they have not sold after 4 - 6 months, they do go to donation. I have several places that take these goods and they are happy to have them! There are some items like higher priced goods that do get returned to customers if they do not sell and if items do not have a long time on the racks before the end of the season, I may store or return them until the next season.
KB: What do you love the most about your business?
I love the customer base I have. Really some amazing people. It is neat to see the kids growing up and getting to know all the families. I am happy to provide great second hand clothes and unique new brands to people.
