Parents in North/Northeast Portland now have a new place to sell their children’s gently used clothing and baby gear: Mississippi Treehouse. The store, located on North Portland’s indie-shopping strip Mississippi Street, opened just this last year and is to date, the only children’s boutique that also features resale in the neighborhood. They are also the only North Portland children’s store I know of that features a story hour (Fridays from 12-2 p.m.) and a play area.
Mississippi Treehouse is not the place to unload your old maternity clothes. Larger baby gear like strollers are sold on consignment. They give either 40 percent in trade credit that must be used in one year or 30 percent in cash.
