Looking for Children's Consignment Stores in Bradenton & Sarasota Area
I was wondering if any of you fellow thrifty moms knew of any more children's consignment shops other than Pitter Patter & Snappy Turtle in the Sarasota & Bradenton area? Is there one called Sweet Pea's Closet in Lakewood Ranch? Any info anyone has would be appreciated greatly! Thanks a bunch ladies!

My favorite is Snappy Turtle. Chloe's Closet is fairly new and is too small for my taste. Not a lot of choices. I also would not recommend After the Stork. I have heard bad things about that store, including selling a fake handbag as authentic to a friend of mine. Hopefully we'll get something in Bradenton soon. Until then, Goodwill rocks!
Moms recommend the following deals from Mamapedia:

Hi. Sweet pea's closet closed down over a yr ago I believe. I've seen ads on Cl about one in LWR named Chloe's closet or Chloe's something. But I've never been there. There is a shop in Bradenton named After the Stork but I have heard so many terrible stories and known people with so many sad stories about them....I personally will never shop there. There's been many bad ads on c/l about them too.....Have you tried Goodwill. Sometimes you can find great stuff there.
