Rugrats Resale is a semiannual children’s consignment sale that has been operating in the State College area since 2007. The sale began in a small room of a local school and has grown to occupy its current location at Penn Skates. Today, Rugrats Resale is made up of over 250 registered Consignors in 4 cities each sale season! Rugrats Resale sales are held twice a year in each State College, Bellefonte, and Altoona, and once a year in Clearfield. In 2017, Women's Resale was created (but closed permanently in 2021), then Rugrats Resale Altoona in 2018. In 2019, Just Kids Resale was acquired and added to the Rugrats Resale family of events, and the name was officially changed in 2022. Rugrats Clearfield was first opened in 2022.
At each Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter sale you will find great bargains on gently-used baby and kid’s gear including equipment, clothing, and toys.
Rugrats Resale, owned and operated by Annette Thompson. Before becoming the owner, Annette spent over 2 years with Rugrats Resale (under Lydia Myers) and Just Kids Resale (under Gena Henry) as a consignor, worker, and shopper. The help of these two wonderful ladies made the purchases and merger of these two companies as smooth as possible.
Before purchasing Rugrats, Annette owned and operated Twice Cherished Children's Resale in Duncansville, PA. The Women's Sale in October 2017 was the first sale under her ownership.
MISSION STATEMENT- The mission of Rugrats Resale is to recycle, repurpose, and reuse good items; to provide all families in Blair, Centre, and Clearfield counties with opportunities to make money by selling outgrown things and to purchase gently-used necessities at an affordable price.
