The best resale shops in Chicago - and what to know when you go

 
 
 

All New to Me

4546 N. Western Ave., Chicago, allnewtome.com, (773) 506-1333

The basics: Kim Huster bought the business from the former Thrifty Baby owners and reopened it in February 2010. "We have pretty much anything a parent would need for their child, from clothes and gear to books and toys. We take everything on a 50/50 consignment and return any unsold items back to the owners after one season," says Huster.

Store highlights: The store tries to have something in everyone's price range-from brand new Radio Flyer toys to Carter's and Hannah Andersson.

Best tip for buyers: Always ask if there is a better price. No price is firm.

Best tip for sellers: Sort your items into outfits, rather than separate bags of pants and shirts.
