CHILDREN GROW SO FAST!
I am trying, my hardest, to sell some of Miles Storm’s equipment that he has grown out of and is now sitting around our apartment gathering dust – a gorgeous white Alma cot, a exersaucer and a Mamaroo! I’ve advertised on many websites to no avail. So when another Mother told me about Flying Squirrel as a great resource to sell “gently used” clothing/equipment I headed down to North 6th to check out the store.
I noticed the store walking down North 6th as there was a Bugaboo parked on the footpath out the front for sale! Apparently, the Bugaboos go like hot cakes. Personally I cannot imagine EVER giving up my Bugaboo!
Flying Squirrel has been in the “Willy B” area since 2003 providing second-hand, NEW & high-end clothing/accessories, toys and gently-used equipment to the masses. The Store is PACKED to the brim!
Here is the deal if you want to sell your clothing – .
1. Drop Off a small Your-Name bag of 30 items max for the buyer in-store to consider for re-sale.
2. Flying Squirrel will evaluate the merchandise, as soon as they can, and call you back with the terms.
3. They offer 50% of retail price in-store credit, when sold. OR, 25% of retail price paid via check, when sold.
4. If they are not interested in buying your clothing they will give it to charity. Or, you can come and pick it back up.
The woman in the store was SO helpful, she really made me feel very welcome, which made me feel like I should buy something – so I did! It is so hard to walk into a Children’s store and not buy at least a little something. Well, for me anyway!
Flying Squirrel is open Monday to Thursday from 11:00AM till 7:00PM, Friday to Saturday from Noon till 8:00PM and Sunday Noon till 7PM.
Update — Since writing this post the Flying Squirrel is now at the new location of 87 Oak Street, Brooklyn. We suggest calling them in advance with any questions 718 218 7775
