Evolving maternity

When the store began a few years ago the maternity section was in the far back under low ceilings and there were just a couple of racks. Since then we have moved the entire section to the front of the store (a right hand turn from the entrance) and we are up to 5 racks, a multiple armed stand, a dresser and many bins! Yes, we've grown along with our pregnant customers.

Two main racks hold shirts, blouses, dresses priced from only $9.99 and up. The dresser holds $5.99 shirts, support belts, belly bands and some random articles. Two other main racks hold jeans, slack, suits, skirts, shorts priced from $20.99 and up (our highest price jeans at $99 are a STEAL from retail!). The bins below the main racks hold maternity bottoms all priced under $20. Stacking bins hold the bras, the stand holds maternity swimsuits and nursing tops. The round rack is our Half Off rack and these items are our best deals ever!!

These pieces are here because most consignors loved them, felt pretty in them, liked the fit and cut. We have a mirror on the floor and you can try on clothes in our restroom/changing room to be sure you appreciate the same aspects as the previous owner. You don't have to put your clothes back on the racks, we'll do it for you. And, we'll give you honest opinions on fit, wear, etc. That's why we're here!

Brands you'll find here are from outlet to designer: Motherhood, Old Navy, Duo, Liz Lange (Target and designer), Mimi, A Pea in the Pod, Paige, Tara, 7Seven, Mumzee, Glamour Mom, BB, Olian and many more.We carry from Petite/XS to 3X and styles range from sleepwear to casual to business to formal.

If you have a baby bump or know someone who does, we hope you'll recognize the value of shopping with us so that you can look great for less (and so can your kids)!!

Happy Earth Day!

We are helping with some simple celebrations today - we have a table set up for you to re-create your own art using bits and pieces, pages, and other fun stuff!! Leave your art on display at the store to show off what you did or take it home and play with it or keep adding to it!

I reused an old binder for a sign

I used old calendar pages for signs and when we're done today we'll recycle everything we can in one way or another!

Earth Day - Making Art Event!

On EARTH DAY Friday, April 22, we'll host a table with items to reuse in creating something brand new!

We have puzzle pieces, magazines & books, mini toys, string, ribbons and we'll have some parts of nature including sticks, leaves and flowers (from our own yards, never pick from someone else's yard without permission). Everything will be child friendly and easy to use with supervision.

Leave finished artwork here on display or if you want to take it home perhaps we can snap a picture of it before you go. We want to share with everyone how bits and pieces can turn into pieces of art!

Bring the kids (or make something yourself!!) From 10a - 4p we'll have a table outside for this special event. Come on by - it's FREE!!

Costume, Dramatic Play donations requested

San Rafael Head Start program was not able to afford all of the items their students need so we are helping them collect for their Dramatic Play area. Please consider dropping off donations at our store any costumes, capes, hats, props for play. These items are used in teaching and free play, a wonderful way for the kids to express themselves and learn at the same time!

We are grateful for all the items donated in the past and currently for all local charities, non-profits, and people and children in need.

Here are some examples of the costumes we have in-store right now. Perhaps you have an old fedora, a boa, some boots, Dr scubs, etc. Remember, boys love to play, too!!
