Where to Find the Price Tags That Will Fit Your Budget

Here are some places in Orange County where you can find resale clothing and other items for children.

Prices can range from $1 to $65 at the private shops for used items, which are described as in near-new or mint condition.

Items are stocked by size, ranging from infant to Size 6 in some stores, to upper teens in others. Most carry some new clothing as well and offer used or new toys, cribs, strollers and similar items.

Clothing in the traditional thrift-store operations are more randomly stocked and not separated by sizes. Items can vary widely in condition. Prices generally range from 95 cents to $8:
