Buying/Trading Policy:  

We buy new and gently used children's and maternity clothing ranging from newborn to size 12. We pay cash or store credit for in-season name brand clothes (Baby Gap, Gymboree, Children's Place, Crazy 8, Baby Lulu, Quick Silver, Hurley, Volcom etc.) We offer store credit for other brands or name brand clothing that is not in-season.   

 We always pay CASH $on these type of  items: 
equipment, toys, bassinets, walkers, jumparoos, saucers, Bumbos, strollers, highchairs, toddler carseats, pack-n-plays, etc.

All clothing must be brought in freshly laundered and laid flat in a box, bin or basket (no bags please) and free of any rips, stains, holes, fading or excessive wear. To maintain quality and keep up with current trends, we do not buy clothing more than a few years old. You will get paid the most money if you bring your toys in clean with fresh batteries & your baby equipment clean with all parts & pieces (trays, accessories, toys). We do not accept recalled items or any baby gear older than 5 years. We do pay more  for 2 piece outfits and name brands, however we also accept every day brands such as Target clothing.

The amount paid by The Baby Exchange is determined by three main factors:
  1. The item's cleanliness & condition
  2. Our current stock of the item 
  3. The current public demand & popularity for similar items  sold in past

Store Credit Policy:

 ~ Please understand our credit/cash policy is slightly different than other resale shops because over half of our inventory is brand new items with very small profit margin. 

We offer two types of Credit. "Store Credit" good on absolutely everything in the store including all new gear and hand-made items. You get "Store Credit" by accepting the higher credit amount instead of the cash that was offered to you upon selling. We also offer "Clothing Credit". Clothing Credit can be used on small accessories and small brand new items, like hair bows, clips etc. as well as any clothing, shoes, movies, books, baby carriers & smaller toys. This clothing Credit is offered when you are selling either non-name brand clothing or small items that we may have an abundance of. 

    All store credits expire 1 year from the last date used. Credits are refreshed for another year, every time they are used :)

                    Thank you for your understanding!
