HY-Swap is a community exchange of free infant, children's and maternity clothing, toys and gear organized by Hyattsville residents.

Such a awesome community builder and fabulous threads, too.)

And while their Fall/Winter sale occurred this past weekend, I'd make it a point to check out University Park Children's Clothing Co-op's Facebook page to stay in the know about their future Clothing Co-op event!

Can't make any of these events but want some recommendations on nearby places to buy some gently used, thrift clothing/toys/gear?  Here are my usual spots: 
  • Value Village Thrift Store in Adephi, 2277 University Blvd, Adelphi 
  • Salvation Army Family Store, 3300 Kenilworth Ave, Hyattsville (big selection of furniture)
  • Goodwill Retail Store, 2200 South Dakota Ave, NE, Washington, DC (super close to the DC Costco)
  • Value Village Thrift Store in Silver Spring, 10141 New Hampshire Ave, Silver Spring (this place is huge! There's both a Value Village and a Unique Thrift to explore. It's a bit of a drive but worth it, especially when they've got 50% off days (holiday)).

What thrift stores do you recommend? Share in the comments, below!
