Babies grow so quickly, any clothes or gear you buy for them now will probably be obsolete in a few months. This being the case, why spend a lot of money on baby items, when you can get gently used products for a fraction of the price? There are a number of locations in Baltimore where you can sell your old baby stuff and purchase second-hand items for your tot, saving yourself some extra cash for diapers. Quality second-hand locations can be hard to come by, but here are a few that are known for good service, selection and pricing. Consider any of these venues for your baby.
