Twin Cities families! Have you heard of Kid A in Minneapolis?
Kid A is a Minneapolis business that sells and buy used baby/kid gear, and I checked it out and met Matt, the owner! They have a variety of good, quality used baby and kids items for way cheaper than new.
Here’s how it works:
If you have baby or kid gear to get rid of, either drop off or set up a free pickup time (if you’re in their pickup zone). You can do all of this online which is easy. Then they’ll pay you for everything that they’ll sell, and donate the rest for you.
I think one of the biggest struggles I have as a parent is trying to figure out what to do with all their stuff after they’ve outgrown it. I could donate it all, but a lot of it is practically new. I’ve sold items on Facebook marketplace and at consignment sales, and it’s great to make money from those things, but it takes time. And I don’t always have a lot of time.
Matt, a dad of two, came up with the idea of his business to solve this exact problem. He wanted to offer families an option to get rid of their stuff and make some money from it without all the work.
If you haven’t been to Kid A, but have baby or kid stuff to sell or if you would like to shop for items, I recommend visiting! I explored the store and found a lot of cool items – many I had never even heard of.
There are toys galore, especially for babies and young kids.
You can find baby equipment including bassinets, feeding items, strollers and more. They also have boppy pillows which I had when my kids were babies!
And on their price tags they show what the item sells for new, with a link to where you can find an example.
If you’re looking for any gear for babies or kids, check out Kid A first!
Here’s what to do:
Schedule a pickup or drop-off at www.kidamarketplace.com. You can also bring items to drop-off at their shop (2313 W. 50th St., Minneapolis) anytime they are open (no appointment needed).
Here’s a map of where they are:
