Peek-A-Boo Children’s And Maternity Preloved Boutique
1911 Ponce De Leon Blvd.
Coral Gables, FL 33134
Peek-A-Boo is the delightful little boutique with the adorable name. Here, parents can shop gently used name brand clothes for boys and girls up to size 16. Parents can also save on back to school shopping by becoming one of Peek-A-Boo’s many “consigners” and turn in their children’s next-to-new clothes and baby accessories into cold hard cash or use the money that they have earned to purchase more clothing. The best part is that, in addition to being a consignment store and a name brand clothing dealer, Peek-A-Boo also sells school uniforms, which makes it a rather convenient one-stop shop. Stop by the Coral Gables store for the best selection or shop online to get a wide range of children’s clothing, accessories, shoes, toys and more.

Lolliposh is like a consignment/flea market/yard sale hybrid. During its seasonal events, which are typically held in the fall and spring at the Jewish Community Center, parents become consigners and retailers of their children’s clothes and toys by setting the price for their merchandise, selling items directly to the consumer and making up to 75 percent of the profit. The rates are unbelievably reasonable with many items costing $10-15 and clothes ranging up to size 12. You can either participate in the event or you can take advantage of the amazing deals available from this Broward County 2011 Kid’s Crown award-winner for Best Consignment Shop. “Like” the Lolliposh Facebook page to sign up for the mailing list and to get more information on the next event in October.

Boobabies is another children’s consignment shop that clothes children up to size 14. The boutique itself is very informal and the clothes are casual, perfect for the kid who likes to get messy. Participating consigners will receive 40 percent of the sale of clothes and toys after buyers fees. However, it is recommended that you start selling your child’s used clothes as soon as possible to be able to apply the deals to your back to school shopping. Otherwise, you will have to recuperate the money you spend at a later date, and that might not be convenient for you or your child.
