10. Thrift stores & Hand Me Downs
No list of spots for cheap baby clothes would be complete without a tribute to thrift stores, hand me downs, and good ol’ online marketplaces like Facebook Marketplace or Kijiji. The thing about baby clothes is, babies grow out of them - fast. Sometimes babies grow so damn fast that they don’t even get to wear those adorable outfits hanging and waiting earnestly in their closets, which means parents can score some pretty awesome deals on baby clothes that have hardly been worn, if they’ve been worn at all.
Join those local marketplace groups online, head out to your nearest thrift store, and accept those hand me downs when someone offers them to you. If you don’t love ‘em, you can pass them along or drop them off at the thrift shop on your next visit - no one will ever know. Promise.
