The East Village institution is the largest children's (and maternity) consignment shop in Manhattan. Make an appointment to bring in your gently used clothes, books, toys, furniture and gear for store credit, then look through the well-organized bargain clothing racks. Jane's also carries new baby clothing from Zutano and new maternity items from Cadeau, as well as a mishmash of whatever local kids have cast off, from tap shoes and ice skates to Disney VHS tapes. The store keeps a "haves" and a "needs" list, matching those who wish to unload with those wanting the castoffs. 191 East 3rd St (212-677-0380, janesexchangenyc.com).
Congratulations on your pregnancy! It's time to explore the best maternity stores in NYC!
These nine months are the official kickoff to motherhood...which means you're already quite devoted to baby. Between decorating the nursery and countless doctors' visits, you have to make sure to squeeze in some "you" time as well. This includes finding the most comfortable (and stylish!) clothes to see you through your baby's debut. Whether you're staying in or going out, these shops provide something for everyone. Enjoy browsing the racks!
