HandMeDowns.com, ultimate one-stop shop for parents who are looking to rid their home of all the baby clothes, toys, gear, and furniture that their child has outgrown. It’s a place where parents can save money, make money, and recycle all at the same time (and in this economy every little bit helps – Especially around the holiday season!).
Handmedowns.com is a resource for moms to buy, sell, give away for free or donate their gently used items. Previously, to find a second-hand item in good condition, parents had to surf and sift through giant, impersonal classified sites like eBay or Craigslist. Handmedowns.com aggregates all of the sites into one, combining listings from the top five classified sites with original postings from trusted Hand-me-downs users.
Parents can upload their listings directly onto handmedowns.com. These listing are free and receive priority on the site. Unlike Craigslist, that lumps all baby products into a huge category that is hard to navigate, we LOVE that handmedowns.com has different categories for everything from infant swings to toddler clothing to nannies looking for work. That way you can go directly to the category that you want and find the products fast. No more endless searching through baby clothes posting when you are looking for a stroller.
Safety is heavily promoted, and a link to a government recall site is provided to avoid any unsafe items from getting posted. We would like to remind our Baby Gizmo readers that there are certain items that are never a good idea to buy second hand, such as car seats! And make sure to check those recalls for highly recalled items such as playards! But for things such as clothes, strollers, toys, etc., handmedowns.com is a great resource.
Plus, as an added bonus, the site’s recycling of second-hand goods helps the environment by reducing the tons of products that would otherwise go to landfills.
