Bargain Finds


The Green Bean

Los Angeles

By Suzanne O'Connor

When my daughter was little, all I shopped were kids resale shops. Things change and even though we now have big resale kid events, there are not nearly as many indie kids resale shops as there used to be.

One new children’s resale discovery, The Green Bean is actually a new re-inventing of an old kids resale shop I reviewed way back in 2004.

This lovely little neighborhood shop has a great, well-edited selection of kids’ better apparel at 60-80% off original retail on resale items. Carrying infant thru 16, you’ll find all the well-known department store labels as well as unique, handmade and European designers here for boys and girls and well organized racks and shelving.

Great buys include a Galeries Lafayette girls dress for $12 instead of $65. Some Boys Sperry suede shoes were $12 instead of $40-$50. A girls peasant style dress was just $4. A Polka Dot Tutu was just $5 a NWT Elfin Doll pants (2) were $8. Boys Under Amour sweats were $4 and some girls pink leggings were just $4. Boy’s board shorts were $4 and some boys leather cowboy boots were $18. A Belemonde Infant Sleep set was $8 instead of $32. A Mini Boden boy’s plaid shirt was $7 and a boy’s Cherokee button down shirt was $6 instead of $16. Their large selection of kids shoes ran $4-12.

They also had a used double stroller by City Mini for $165 instead of $440 new and a kids back pack at just $5 and a cool selection of books here from first readers to young adult as well as used games & toys.

But Green Bean is more than just a kids resale store. They have public Story Time every Monday at 10:30am with singing and crafts. Plus they have a new retail section in the back room with toys, games (including Melissa & Doug) and clothing with a 40% off section.

If you’re a Mom, Grandma or Granddad, a Dad or Auntie, this little shop is a winner with great savings & selection for your favorite wee one.
