There's just so much to buy with school starting up again and we don't want to leave the kids disappointed when it comes to school clothes. The smart answer is shopping resale and I found a great example of a small, but very quality oriented resale shop that specializes in great clothes in sizes from newborn all the way to size 16 for both boys and girls.
Puddleduds resale for back-to-school shopping - There's just so much to buy with school starting up again and we don't want to leave the kids disappointed when it comes to school clothes. The smart answer is shopping resale.
And the added bonus of resale is that you can take in your good stuff that you no longer need or want and make a few bucks to fund the new clothes. Now that's recycling.
Back to School Shopping at Puddleduds
Puddleduds is local, family-owned and well into their 12th year in the Valley. You'll find it at tucked in a small area of shops near the northwest corner of Shea and Scottsdale Road in Scottsdale. Give mother and daughter team, Sharo and Carol, a call to zero you in if you have any trouble finding it.
Here's what I liked the most. Puddleduds is really clean, really organized and takes only the clothes in really good condition. Plus, they specialize in clothing so there aren't a lot of used toys floating around. They do have a nice selection of used books and also carry some select new items like infant toys, specialty water bottles and ceramic tea sets.
I also loved that they accept and sell snow clothing and boots for our kids that ski and snowboard. This can be a lifesaver if you only go up north a couple of times a year and can't invest in the newest gear each year. In the summer they'll stock wetsuits for our ocean visits.
And let's not forget about the most popular flip-flops out there Havaianas. Puddleduds stocks them in sizes for babies through women's - all year round.
Now for the trade-in scoop. Puddleduds is one of the resale shops in the Valley that purchases the items that they can use and pays cash immediately. Many shops make you wait for your items to sell before giving you any payoff. But, not Puddleduds. They accept items, without appointment Monday - Friday until 3 pm each day.
Here are just a few of the brands that Puddleduds sells:
Boys Charlie Rocket Quiksilver Volcom Gap Under Armour Ralph Lauren Wes and Willy Naartjie Janie & Jack Hurley
Girls Baby Nay True Religion Seven for All Mankind Juicy Couture Gap Gymboree Sweet Ivy Biscotti Flowers Zoe Little Mass
So, even if you've never shopped resale before, back-to-school shopping may be a good reason to give it a try. When you see the high-quality clothes you can get for a fraction of the price I think you just might be sold.
