Q: What made you start this buyer’s journey?

A: My daughter grew out of her shoes that she only wears on Sundays — we painted them with red nail polish and gold glitter, after removing the fabric flower at the toe part of the shoes, so she could dress up as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz but she couldn’t wear them much more than 20 minutes because, ya know, she had outgrown them—

A: — but her sandals are not warm enough for the colder weather we have now. We’ve been making due with boots but they don’t go with all of her outfits.

A: So we looked at several thrift stores, like 4 or 5. Then we went to Kid to Kid and they also didn't have size 9 kids shoes; it was very frustrating. So we finally went on Amazon and they had thrift store prices AND the right size, with the right bow and the right amount to of sparkle.

A: Certain sizes of kids clothes you just cant find at thrift stores like 9 month old boys’ clothes because at that age they’re learning to eat so they ruin all there shirts no matter how many bibs you put on them. Food gets in every crevice, everywhere as they continue learning to eat. And certain ages of little girls, have certain preferences, it’s usually sparkly dress shoes and so they wear them out THOROUGHLY, so then the used pairs are not donated.

Q: If you could take a picture of the shoes on your friends’ kids, and buy them with two taps on your phone, would you?

Yes, absolutely!
