|About the Shop|
Gently-Used Clothing for babies to size 8, great selection and prices. Selling your clothing: We buy your gently-used in-season clothing and shoes in exchange for store credit only. Buying hours are Tuesday thru Thursday 2-5:30pm or by appointment. Clothes and shoes must be freshly laundered and folded, no stains, up to two grocery bags per visit.
Please call first to make sure the buyer is in and buying--sometimes we just cannot buy any more for the week! We can no longer accept drop-offs or donations but we suggest Bananas on Claremont as a great place nearby to take your donations of children's clothing and other gear.

|What's Growing in Ruby's Garden? updated 3/31/14|
Spring Bunny Party - Temescal First Friday
Meet the Bunnies Ruby's rabbits Jackson and Crystal had SECOND litter so we've been enjoying watching the little furballs play and grow. Give those bunnies a cuddle at the Easter party! They are available for adoption so let us know if you're interested in bringing one or two home. Ruby will be available to tell you how to care for a pet rabbit, including house training. Rabbits can be very affectionate for relatively little care given the right setup. $15 adoption fee.
