CANADIAN SECONDHAND STORES FOR KIDS YOU CAN SHOP ON INSTAGRAM

With a rise in secondhand shopping for kids there have been a number of shopping options being made available – including secondhand stores for kids you can shop directly on Instagram!

If there is one thing I can love about this pandemic, despite wanting to hate every aspect of it, it’s how varied and accessible it has made shopping secondhand stores for kids from the comfort of home. After writing the Canadian Thrift Stores for Kids You Can Shop Online blog list last March I hummed and hawed about whether or not I should add the shops that are Instagram only. 

Not because I don’t think they’re valid – they’re just not always quite as easy to shop for everyone as websites are. A year later, I think the parts I thought were complicated have their own unique aspects. For example: some shops have designated drop days and times, which means you know you won’t miss out on cool items while you’re busy!

Shopping secondhand stores for kids via Instagram can seem complicated at first, so here’s a few tips to know:

  • Most stores have a highlight on their profile explaining their process 
  • Most stores require you to comment on a post, pay within 24 hours and have various options for pickups and deliveries
  • Some stores use specific drop days & times to make shopping easier – set those alarms and be ready to shop
  • Find out if they offer bundle shopping, aka bundling multiple purchases you’ve made, to save on shipping costs

Here is a list of Canadian thrift stores for kids who are based on Instagram!

Stores are listed in alphabetical order.

Got to the bottom and wondering why you don’t see your province or favourite Instagram-based secondhand stores for kids aren’t here? This list is ever growing and updated monthly. There are a ton of secondhand stores for kids out there, with new ones being opened on a regular basis, and I’m doing my best to keep it updated. I made sure that the shops included in here had been active within a month of the start of this too!

Know a secondhand store for kids that should be on here? Feel free to send me an email at beingthismama@gmail.com with the subject line “Instagram Secondhand Store” and I’ll add it the next time I do an update!

Be sure to check out the links below for even more options to shop secondhand stores for kids, or yourself.
