If you have been reading my blog for any increment of time, you know that I have a thing for second-hand stores. I am excited to let you know that just a few days ago, another one popped up in Midtown. Its called Sippees and it was opened by Jessica Schneider, owner of Junkee Clothing Exchange. Unlike any of the other stores I have mentioned though, Sippees is geared towards the kiddos.
Sippees has a little bit of everything, and stepping through the front door feels more like hopping on a ride at Disneyland than it does entering a store. It contains more than enough fun activities to keep the kids busy while you sort through the racks. The store, which carries new and used children’s clothing, features a giant seal named Sippee, a tutu warehouse, a life-size tug boat, and a sail boat filled with salt water taffy. By the looks of the place, I’d imagine that parents have a hard time getting their kids to leave.
Similarly to Junkee Clothing Exchange, Sippees buys, sells and trades used children’s clothing in addition to selling all the goodies and new stuff. I have a feeling that Sippees will do quite well for itself. It’s not like its the only re-sale children’s clothing store, but it is the only re-sale children’s clothing store of its kind. If you don’t have any kids in your life, the store is still worth checking out…its that awesome. If you do have kids though, don’t wait. Sippees will surely become one of your go-to stores.
Sippees is located at 955 S. Virginia Street and is open 7 days a week from 10:00am to 6:00pm. Check it out and let me know what you think!
