Small Threads for Kids is a youth consignment store that opened in Totem Lake (12507 116th Ave NE) three months ago. The former US Bank building is now bursting at the seams with every color of the rainbow in children's gently used clothes sizes newborn to 16, strollers, bouncy seats, car seats, books, games, stuffies, and more. This is a great way to upcycle and keep usable items and dollars in our own community. They are constantly getting new things in so check back often. Some of the hottest items right now are outerwear, leggings, newborn items (Evergreen is just a skip jump away), and brands such as Janie & Jack, Hannah Andersson, and Mini Boden. I was impressed that everything is so neat, organized, and well labeled.
Have you been staying inside and cleaning out your kids' closets on these rainy days? Excellent. You can consign 6 items by popping in without an appointment or up to 35 items with an appointment. The split is 60 % (Small Threads)/ 40% (your wallet) and stays on the rack for up to 60 days at which time unsold items can be returned or donated. Hours are Mon-Fri 9:30am-6 pm and Sat 10-5 (closed Sunday). There are also locations in Issaquah, Redmond, and soon-to-be Mill Creek. I'm a little sad that Small Threads didn't show up a few years ago when my kids were growing out of their clothes every three months. For those of you in that phase, this will be a winner!
