Flying squirrel is a kid's store with style! We offer an entire new toy store as well as specially curated second hand and consignment sections which include toys, books and clothing.  Every second hand and consignment item is hand picked by store owner, Kate. She is interested in items that are...

  • in great condition,

  • have a stylistic flair

Flying Squirrel has become a wonderful expression of Kate's experience both as a mother and in the industry. 

Selling to the Store

If you have some items that you think would work well in our shop please come on down!! We pick out the items we think will sell, and you receive the store credit that very day.  Your potential buy cannot be dropped off at the store. If a buyer is not present when you come in, we will have to ask you to take your items with you. We apologize for the inconvenience!

Payment: Store credit immediately upon buy or cash immediately upon buy. We no longer buy items on consignment.

We pay cash for items we have a hard time finding and that are in high demand. We pay a quarter of what we hope to sell the item(s) for because all too often items (no matter how wonderful) do not sell - we donate massive amounts of clothing each year. We are strictly selective about what we can pay cash for and only have a certain amount we can spend per month. Please come to the store expecting an offer of store credit only in most cases.

Using trade:  Trade is your best bet if you enjoy shopping in our store. You will receive a store credit immediately upon selling your clothing, and it will never expire. You can only use your credit on second hand items. It does not work for new or consignment items. If you have left over store credit we keep it safely in the computer where it will be immediately available anytime you come in. Store credit does not expire.

Selling criteria:  Clothing for under 2 years must look like new.  We can't accept clothing with pilling from the drier, any kind of stain or anything that needs to be repaired.  We don't take shoes with laces for this size, and we generally don't need basic clothing for this age.  We are looking for nicer brands.  We don't take any brand from Target, Toys R us or similar box stores.  We don't take any clothing with the brand name on the front….Even if it's Christian LaCroix.  The sizes we need the most range between 2T and 10Yrs.  We buy up to size 14 or 16 or even maternity if it's something special.

We buy toys, books and equipment! Please be aware that over the years we have found we cannot sell (or take in) certain items.


-Anything for bath, bedding or feeding or that is upholstered - this includes stuffed animals, teething toys, mattresses and the like.

-Expensive electronics.

We can donate most of these items if you have no one to give them to. We usually donate to St. Mary’s Church in Brooklyn
