WITH the es­ca­lat­ing prices of chil­dren’s clothes, it’s worth a look in the Cloth­ing & Ac­ces­sories sec­tion of Week­end Shop­per to see what’s on of­fer.

Al­though shop­pers can’t ac­tu­ally sight the cloth­ing un­til they meet with the seller, with the prices so heav­ily dis­counted it’s not re­ally an is­sue.

There are moun­tains of cloth­ing ad­ver­tised and typ­i­cally they range from a cou­ple of dol­lars up­wards.

Some sell­ers of­fer bulk items for a sin­gle price in a va­ri­ety of chil­dren’s sizes.

They may be "Girls clothes size 12, 29 pieces win­ter girls clothes incl pump­kin patch plus six boots and two shoes ap­prox size 3-4, the lot for $38".

Sim­i­lar deals are of­fered for "Boys clothes Size 7-10 inc Coun­try Road, Fred Bare, Osh Kosh, Gap and more. Good con­di­tion big range, also World Sneak­ers, $45 the lot".

Shop­pers will also find sin­gu­lar items, both new and used, such as "boy’s jacket with de­tach­able hood, size 6, ex­cel­lent con­di­tion for $15". Or "girls’ Con­verse shoes hot pink Eur size 39 – UK 6 Ex con­di­tion for just $25".

Uni­sex denim jack­ets size 7-8 that re­tail for $75 each sell for $15 each.

Not sur­pris­ingly there are lots more girls clothes for sale than boys.

In gen­eral most girls’ cloth­ing for sale in shop­per is sold in bulk.

Typ­i­cally, buy­ers will of­fer lots of, say, dresses, tops sum­mer and win­ter plus shoes and sandals in good con­di­tion for be­tween $20 and $30. Ad­ver­tised cloth­ing gen­er­ally cov­ers all sizes from two right up to size 12 and shoes vary depend­ing on the day.

Ei­ther way, with an av­er­age size 6 girls dress re­tail­ing for any­where from $25 – $100 it’s worth check­ing out shop­per to bag a sav­ing.
