Kids will be kids. Which means stains from grass, formula, popsicles, sloppy joes, markers and more become the enemy in the battle to keep clothes clean and presentable. Kid To Kid offers a great alternative to retail by offering gently used children's clothing at a fraction of retail costs. Name brands abound amid the inventory, which encompasses babies through pre-teens, both boys and girls. It beats the heck out of paying full price for a pair of pants destined to last only five minutes on the playground.

Expect to encounter at least a half-dozen stockers filling the shelves whenever you visit. The store is a neighborhood favorite and offers frequent discounts and sales on seasonal fruits and vegetables. The quality of the produce is superior to that of most grocery stores, as are the organic meats as well as the fresh breads and pastries from the bakery. Sin Harvest stocks a wide variety of dry goods in its bulk section; the bins are continually refilled, and the prices are reasonable. There are organic, soy and additive-free cereals, chips and drinks, as well. The store also carries a large selection of vitamins, herbs and alternative health medicines, and the staff is knowledgeable and willing to help the customer make an informed purchase. Aromatherapy and homeopathy oils and herbal products are available, too.
