I discovered Plato's Closet which is a teenage designer clothing consignment store. My teen can get name brand clothing for less than it would cost to buy her clothes at Walmart. She also can take her outgrown clothes that are in good condition and receive money back. Go to http://www.platoscloset.com to find the location nearest you. You won't be disappointed!
i just went to their site and found that there's a store just 23 miles from me--i'll check on them -hopefully-this weekend. i have a 13 yr old boy who wants to be trendy--thanks for the heads up!
If your child doesn't mind wearing non-name brand clothing, check out the clearance aisles every once in a while at Target. In our area, they are notorious for clearancing out good quality clothing on a regular basis (in addition to the normal seasonal closeouts). We've gotten long sleeve shirts for $1.00 to $2.00 (for my kindergarten age daughter) and denim jeans for me for $5.00. And this is on a regularly basis! If your child still insists on wearing a name brand, then complement it with an good quality off brand. That way they still get the name brand "fix" but it won't break your budget. :)
