Kids on 45th is a favorite consignment store and fixture on Wallingford's main drag that offers half consignment and half new clothes (from nice specialty labels such as Red Rhino and Spuds, among others) for kids sizes 0-14.
Consignment items are heavy on the clothes, lighter on large items like strollers, high chairs, and big toys. New kids' clothes are colorful and pricey, with a nice choice between the sweet and the hip. Prices for consigned clothes are very reasonable, probably the most reasonable in the area.
Consignment policy: By appointment only; in-store credit is issued for half of what an item sells for; clothes must be clean and seasonal - call to find out what the store is taking.
Check out the dollar rack inside - there are deals to be had if you have the patience to rummage through lots of clothes.
From I-5: Exit NE 45th/NE 50th Street (#169), and follow N 45th westbound to the Wallingford QFC, with its big neon sign, on the north side of 45th. Store is on the north side of the street, west of the QFC. Tight street parking and heavy traffic at times. Public transportation: Served by Metro bus routes 16,44, and 82.
