Secondhand Kids Clothes in Kansas City

It’s okay to be hard on your clothes, but let’s go easy on our planet.

Dressing up and getting dirty are not mutually exclusive!

Upcoming Events

Let’s dress your kids in clothes as unique as they are.


A: The best deals are on the Instagram page, where you can shop via grid posts, story sales and story highlights. You can also shop on Kidizen, Noihsaf Bazaar, and Etsy! If you’re local to Kansas City, look for pop ups and open studio dates, or reach out to make an appointment to shop in person at the studio!

A: I focus on newborn through 6y, but if I find bigger pieces, I can’t resist! I have pieces all the way up to 12/14. I pay attention to what my customers are buying and try to be heavy in those sizes–typically 2T-5T.

A: A lot of them have been worn by my own kids and come through my home where I source largely from thrift stores and from other businesses like my own or directly from other parents– I love a special vintage piece and I love supporting my reseller community! To make sure I have a range of sizes and styles (and because there’s nothing like the hunt), other stock comes directly from thrift stores or yard sales or from my friends and customers selling their outgrown sizes.

A: I am open to buying depending on my current stock! Please reach out if you have great preloved or vintage items you are looking to find a home for. I pay 25% of estimated resale value up front, so you never have to wait for your items to sell to get paid.

A: Mostly! I carefully inspect and consider the condition of each item that I list. Besides, or in addition to machine washing (I use powdered tide, if you’re wondering), I use fresh air, sunlight and a steamer to make sure clothes are fresh and in a condition that I would be happy to bring into my home.

A: Absolutely! If you’re looking for something special or specific, please send me a message and I’d love to help you find it! If I can’t find it in the wild, I know of so many other great vintage and preloved shops I can refer you to!

What parents are saying…

I love shopping at Copycat Kids for all of my kids. Carly finds great styles that while pre-loved are never worn down and always have a lot left to give.

From t-shirts, to fancy “princess” dresses, and special vintage items, Carly works to curate a selection for everyone.

As a mom, I do my best to reduce our family’s footprint and it always makes me feel good to shop locally, re-use and pass on clothing.

Everything I’ve gotten for my kids from Copycat Kids has been incredible quality and so cute. It’s easy to order, pay, and pick up in KC. 

Carly is super responsive and quick to answer questions. It feels good to be buying second-hand and supporting a small business!

Highly recommend shopping with Carly!

Buying and selling clothes with Carly has always felt fun, fair and easygoing.

She has the best eye and I love finding that special item that’s so fun to put my daughter in.

Plus, it feels good to buy pre-loved and know our favorite outgrown outfits are going to find a good home through CopyCat Kids
