It’s hard to believe that we’ve been open almost a year.  It has been a fantastic year as I’ve gotten to know so many members of this community.  It’s been amazing to see the diversity of families here the Bay Area and I feel fortunate to be able to have this business here.  I’ve also gotten to see how incredibly generous this community as we’ve facilitated the donation of at least 6 carloads of baby clothes and gear to amazing organizations such as Loved Twice and the Bay Area Crisis Nursery.

To celebrate and to express our gratitude we are having a big sale! 25% off all second-hand clothing (this means children’s, maternity and nursingwear). Plus, there are lots of great deals to be had on gear. We hope to see you soon! Naomi and the Mommy’s Trading Post team.


Zutano Booties and Hats are in!

Zutano Cozie Fleece Hat and Booties

Zutano Cozie Fleece Hat and Booties

I’m so excited to announce that we are now carrying Zutano booties and a few of their hats.  You may have heard of their awesome booties, because not only are the super cute and warm, but they also are nearly impossible for babies to wiggle out of. Nothing is more annoying than losing one out of a pair of shoes or booties, so they make for one less thing to worry about.

Also great news is that they now offer some of the larger sizes (12 and 18 months) with grippers. These would make perfect house slippers for that new walker in your family during these chilly months.

These booties and the coordinating hats make awesome Holiday or Baby Shower gifts or stylish additions to a baby photoshoot outfit.

*Photos are just examples of some of the styles in stock.

America Recycles Day

Don’t forget November 15 is America Recycles Day! Consignment and resale are great ways to recycle, whether you’re buying or selling, you’re keeping usable goods from entering the waste stream! So before you go to the big box stores, why not check out your local consignment or second-hand store and see if you can not only help the environment but your wallet to. Right now we’re throwing way to much out.

According to the Council for Textile Recycling, the US generate an average of 82 lbs of textiles per person each year and only 15% of those are donated or recycled and the remaining 85% end up in landfills (http://www.weardonaterecycle.org/about/issue.html). Join us at Mommy’s Trading Post in the effort to shift these numbers, whether buying/selling with us or dropping off donations of infant clothes for Loved Twice.
