Kid Around Shop in Saugerties is a consignment shop that opened in the Summer of 2010. They have really expanded since then. They sell used clothes, new and used toys, used strollers, bouncy seats, cribs, the entire line of Melissa & Doug, vintage baby clothes, and handmade bags from local Hudson Valley designers. Owner Claire Raper says, "Grandmas love us!" There is really something for every kid. I was excited to see that they even sell used VHS videos. The only place I find these are at yard sales or eBay.com. In the Fall, Kid Around will continue to offer story time, and will offer mommy and me classes as well.
Also, if you are pressed for time, just let Claire know what you need and she will gather up a few items for you to see (at no obligation). They also sell cute kids costumes. The best way to keep up to date with their happenings/events is to follow them on the Kid Around Facebook Page. To learn more about Kid Around Shop, including how to become a consignor, visit their website. You will also find out about cool events such as story time, mommy and me classes, and even a toy workshop. Zoe Rowan, also known as OwlieCat, a craftsman who wants to bring back handmade toys to the Hudson Valley, taught a toy workshop on Father's Day.
