Hand me Downs are Back! Beverly Hills leads the Pack!

Kids grow in and grow out of their clothes and taste for toys and games faster than most parents can cope.

As many of us are rediscovering thrift shops, buying re-manufactured consumer products, trading books and vacation homes and bartering services, from Beverly Hills here comes Hand Me Downs.
This recently launched site allows parents to buy, sell or donate baby items (strollers, high chairs, swings, changing tables, playpens...), clothing for babies and kids alike as well as maternity outfits.
Add to the list toys, music and videos for the little one as well as furniture, childcare and services.
All items have to be new or 'gently' used.

Inspired by the way Craigslist is organized all items and services are listed by area.

Hand me Downs currently serves the following metropolitan areas: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, San francisco, Seattle, Washington D.C.

A quick registration is needed to list and get or purchase items.

Fits right there in our Consumed to Thrifty thread.

Aware of any similar services, let us know!

Discovered Hand me Downs on Springwise.
