Flying squirrel is a kid's store with style! We offer unique new items for gifts but are known for our specially curated second hand and consignment sections which includes toys, books and clothing. Every second hand/consignment item is hand picked by store owner, Kate. She is interested in items that are...
- in great condition,
- have a stylistic flair
- above all else, fantastic function!
Being a mom herself, she knows that if she wouldn't use it, she won't carry it. That way, the Flying Squirrel has become a wonderful expression of Kate's experience both personally 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!! If you are a new timer, please allow time to fill out a small form that we keep with your folder at all times. We then will proceed with picking out the items we think will sell and price them how we feel they will sell best in the store. From the pricing we set, you receive 50% of that total in trade. You will receive the store credit that very day.
Current Buying Hours: **Tuesday - Friday 10:30am - 1:30pm or call for an appointment. We no longer accept "drop offs" at our new location. We have learned the hard way not to attempt to be responsible for drop offs - especially with the new huge space and so many things, your things would be easy to get lost. In the event that you must drop-off your items we will do our best to keep track of them but cannot assume responsibility for them in the event they are lost or abused by tiny hands.
Using trade: Trade is your best bet if you enjoy shopping in our store. You will receive the trade card immediately after selling your clothing at the buy counter and it will never expire. As soon as you get the trade card, the store will have no record of your store credit. That means that you have to treat the card like cash. You can only use your trade on second hand items. It does not work for new or consignment items.
Consignment: Consignment is recommended only for higher value items. You will receive 40% of the final selling price of the consigned item/s after they sell. If you choose this arrangement you must agree to the terms and conditions stated on our Flying Squirrel Consignment Agreement.
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.
