Bargain Finds


Twinkle Twice

5 locations

By Suzanne O'Connor

One of the best ways for moms to save money on children’s clothing is to shop resale / consignment shops where you can find some serious bargains on gently used kids stuff.  Now moms can add a few more places to their list with Twinkle Twice Children’s Resale Boutiques

This family owned group of shops has 5, individually operated locations selling gently used, better label kids clothing (0-10), shoes, toys, books, furniture and accessories at 35% (new) to 90% off original retail.

I visited the Whittier location and found a well-organized, cheerful little shop with some real steals. A cute group of onesies were only 75 cents each. A girls Carter dress was $2.99 instead of $14. A newborns Disney corduroy jumper was $4.99 instead of $24. A girls Youngland dressy dress was $4.99 instead of $28. A girls OshKosh Sweater was just $2.99. Some boys Old Navy plaid Shorts were $2.99 instead of $12. A Baby Gap polo onesie was just $1.99. A Just Born, one piece sleeper was $2.99 and some Toms shoes were a great deal at $6.99.

Some great stroller deals were here. A Mutsy 4 rider stroller w a bassinette was here at $300 instead of $600! Phil Teds Stroller was $150 instead of $350. A used baby Trends stroller was just $60. I also spotted a Fisher Price activity able at $9.99, a Jump a Roo bouncer was $39 instead of $46 and a Coco Baby Loungers was $99 instead of $200.

Like most resale stores, inventory varies so popping in regularly is key to getting the best stuff at the best price. But if you’ve got a kid, you know how fast they’ll out grow their clothes. So you can consign your gently worn and save on purchases for your little darling.

Yay Mom!
