e-thrifting at its very finest

23 August 2014


Sebastian's pants: H&M via Kidizen
Sebastian's shirt: Target via Kidizen
Julia's jegs: Gap via Kidizen
Julia's shoes: c/o Minnetonka

I've typed before about my undying love for Kidizen because me + secondhand clothing has been a match made in thrifty heaven for many years now. I've found that I have less of a cow over Sebastian ruining a shirt or pants or (jackpot!) both via permanent marker if we bought said shirt secondhand. And while I wish I had the courage to hit up thrift stores in the flesh with all the kids in tow I turn into a cowardly lion when it's comes to those types of outings + 4 so online thrift shopping is kind of my jelly. We still have four years to go on the salary of a trainee and then we have the pleasure of tackling med school loans so it's important that we not spend even an arm on clothing, especially for stain-happy children. 

So! Kidizen is great. It's a parent-to-parent marketplace for pre-loved kids clothing and is growing every day (25,000 users worldwide right now!!) and is super user friendly (they've made some updates to the app) and there's a really impressive selection of quality and cute clothing for all ages and sizes of girls and boys. You can easily buy and sell kids clothing all through the app (via iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch) and they've recently made some great improvements to help make the experience as simple as possible (for example: notifications when the price of an item you've favorited has been reduced, and searchable by keyword for specific items). 

Kidizen's shops are full of great brands that I would never dream of buying directly from the retailer at full price. Brands like Crew Cuts, Mini Boden, Tea Collection, Janie and Jack, Matilda Jane, and more! 

Kidizen is generously giving away a $200 package to one lucky reader.

Shall I repeat that?


I shall.

I would imagine that would easily take care of entire fall/winter wardrobe for a child you know and love. 

GOOD LUCK. May the Rafflecopter be ever in your favor.

    I'm so happy I live in 2014 and I can still "go" thrifting after I have kids. Pregnant with our first baby right now! (You are so my inspiration). Keep the secondhand site ideas coming.

  106. Chances of me winning this are next to zilch, but I was JUST telling my husband about how addicting it is for me to buy thrifted clothes for kids because it is so much less painful. Kidizen for the win. And smart smart moves with the neutral style shirts. I'm going to have to work on that.
