Children's Clothing resale? (Not trying to resell your children)

Hi,

I have heard there are some great second hand clothing stores for children near Zurich (East Side?). Does anyone have any suggestions? I'd welcome any good tips around the lake.

Re: Children's Resale?

Quite a few places in Switzerland have a large sale (sort of bring one day and buy things the next) of second-hand children's clothes, twice a year. However, there are also shops - even two in Wädenswil, though I don't know what sort of selection they have.
You'll probably get several posts from Mums who'll tell you more, but it's always worth a go at Google to find things if no-one is around with better ideas. The most unexpected useful sites come up. Google doesn't seem to care much if the spelling is shaky and I sometimes enter the most odd language mixtures and still find what I am looking for.

Re: Children's Resale?

someone else posted here the list - link from the Stadt Zurich website..

Also, watch out for 'kinderborse' or 'flohmarket' - local 'fete' days...

There's one on in Witikon this weekend...

There was a small but decent range of kids stuff at the Caritas shop near Langstrasse a few weeks ago...
