Emmaus has a great consignment store on the triangle called the Elephants Trunk. Welcome I haven't been in it for a couple of years so don't know if their kids selection is especially good but the store is cool.

There is a kids-specific consigment shop on Chestnut St in Emmaus, around the corner from CVS and Pizza Hut (sorry, I can't remember the name of it right now). There are usually pieces of large baby equipment (ride on toys, strollers, easels, etc) sitting out in front, so it's easy to pick out.

Bears Repeating is another kids consignment shop, located at the intersection of routes 100 & 222 in Trexlertown. It's in an old house and they put larger equipment on the front porch when they're open as well. Twice a year they do a $1 sale where they take items that haven't sold/are out of season, etc and put them upstairs and charge a buck a piece. The crowds at these sales are usually big and are lined up for opening. People bring their own clothesbaskets (they don't have carts/baskets) and pile them full (then go back in again sometimes!). Leave the kids at home if you go to the dollar sale.

Their is also a twice-a-year kids consignment sale at Merchants Mall in Allentown (off of Lehigh St, kind of by Mack Trucks). It's called The Kids Clothesline and it's coming up very soon. Again, bring your own basket/bags, and leave the kids at home if you can. The good stuff goes early, so be prepared to get their at opening on the first day if possible (although I've found a lot of the really good stuff is already gone by then-bought by people who are working there or consigned items there and are able to shop early). Here's the website The Kids Clothesline - Home .

Default Wanna Drive?

Okay, an hour drive is nothing to me - but that is my filter. However, Kid to Kid in Drexel Hill is very large, and is awesome for clothing, especially maternity clothes - Mimi Materinity, Old Navy, really cute, trend things. Plato's Closet (for women) is right down the street, and they focus on Abercrombie, Hollister, all those expensive jeans like Seven for all Mankind, etc. - for really good prices. My two favorite places to go to on a Saturday or weekday that I have off. I just listen to NPR and catch up on all the world news.

I saw a kid's clothing store down the street from Becker Subaru (sorry, still not familiar with street names) but looked pretty good.

Still very good! There's another store in Emmaus near former(Jim retired recently) Jim's Chestnut Street repair and across from the transmission place down from CVS. I can't think of the name but they sell toys & things.

graysmom8,

I would like to thank you for the mention of the above sale. It is my wife who owns and runs The Kids Clothesline. The Fall sale opens to the public this Friday. She moved the sale to the 10,000 square foot showroom at the Merchants Square Mall so she may accomodate more sellers as well as buyers. She currently has over 175 consigners which has more than doubled the inventory of items. Anyone who lives in the Lehigh valley should take a peak at the website, and most definately stop by this Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday for some good shopping. Thank you for the shout out and I hope to see many of you there. Chuckie www.Thekidsclothesline.com
