With kids growing so quickly, consignment is the way to go for parents on a budget. Abra-Kid-Abra boasts one of the city’s most comprehensive consignment collections for children of all ages. In addition to clothing for newborns up to size 12, the shop also has an extensive selection of shoes, as well as big items such as carriages, baby baths, car seats, cribs and bikes. Many of the big-ticket items can even be rented by the week or month, which is ideal for people who are visiting Victoria with their baby. Games and books for both kids and expectant mothers are also popular items to buy used. If you have some things you want to sell, you can bring up to two boxes or bags into the shop, but make sure items are in the right season. Seller will be given 40 per cent of items under $50, and half of all items over $50.
