Looking for affordable and classy secondhand children’s clothes on a budget? Three Little Peas Clothing boutique is a great option for finding quality brand clothing and accessories for your family.
Disclaimer: I received shop credit from Three Little Peas to be able to provide an honest review. I also purchased items at retail price for this review. All opinions are my own.
I remember as a teen searching the clothing racks with my mom at our local secondhand clothing store for a cool shirt for my youngest brother. Ten years later, I was skimming the racks at the same store for a “coming home from the hospital outfit” for my first son.
That store has sadly closed, but my love for secondhand clothing continues to grow. As a mom of six, I love providing quality clothes for my children in a sustainable way. So many favorite outfits that have now gone through four little girls came from resale stores!
But with homeschooling keeping me busy, and the difficulties with the pandemic, I have been trying to find a reliable online option for secondhand clothing. I was so excited to be introduced to Three Little Peas boutique! In this post, I’ll share my honest experience with this company.
Three Little Peas’ Mission
Three Little Peas is a growing small business based in Michigan, with a mission to expand the Buy Sell Trade community and to help others reuse and recycle.
The owner, Laura, is a mom of three helping other families afford quality brands for their children. I’ve loved my conversations with her–Laura’s passion for secondhand clothing and great children’s products is contagious in the best way!
Inventory and Prices
What does Three Little Peas sell?
The boutique has clothing for girls and boys size newborn-14 years and also carries shoes, accessories, and baby essentials like swaddles and pacifiers. There are several organic cotton and eco-friendly options and many popular name brands like Hanna Andersson and Matilda Jane.
Three Little Peas has a few listings of toys and books, but the selection was small at the time of this review.
Some items are new with tags, like new condition, or labeled with any defects. All of the items from my order were in perfect, like new condition.
The general inventory has been updated several times over the past month that I have been browsing, and bigger inventory uploads are announced in the company’s newsletter.
The newborn-5t girl selection has been impressive, and the older girls’ clothing selection is super cute but seems to sell quickly.
Like any boutique, you have to grab your favorites before they’re gone!
Unfortunately, the options for older boys are very limited which I’ve seen in many other resale boutiques. I hope Three Little Peas can expand their big boys’ selection. The baby boy and toddler clothes are more plentiful and adorable–I’ll definitely be ordering if I have another boy!
How do Three Little Peas prices compare to other children’s retail stores?
Their prices are extremely affordable–I would say comparable to general retail stores prices like Walmart and Target, but for higher-end brands. And much cheaper than children’s specialty stores.
Most of the items I considered purchasing were between $5-20.
They also have a fun and easy rewards program and offer a generous discount for military, teachers, and first responders!
Shipping and Return Policy
Three Little Peas’ shipping is based on weight and varies between $3.99-7.99. My order was processed in just one business day and arrived about a week after I placed my order.
I loved the minimal packaging–it was cute, protected the clothing well, and didn’t contain any unnecessary waste. And all of my children commented on the nice laundry smell.
It’s important to note that used items are final sale, though you can reach out to the company with any issues. New with tag items had a separate return policy you can read here.
Any time you buy secondhand clothing online for children, I would recommend reading the descriptions carefully and size up if you’re debating between sizes.
