Best Clothing Store (Children)

Nu Look Consignment

High-end style trends usually last about a season. Meanwhile, kids go through clothing faster than a fashionista. Fortunately, there's a consignment store where you can cycle through designer clothing as your little ones continually grow out of their duds. In recent years, Nu Look Consignment has expanded its offerings to include women's, men's, and maternity fashions, but the baby and children's selections are especially great. The store has been growing since the early '80s, and now is housed in a huge, 6,000-square-foot space ready for you to explore.
