Summer clothes are arriving daily, so please be sure to stop in and check us out!. We also carry party dresses and boy’s dress clothes.

Grace Episcopal Church, “on the Green” in Windsor, opened this consignment store for childrens’ clothes in October 2004. Cool Kids Clothes is an outreach program of Grace Church operated out of the lower level of the Church. The store accepts gently used children’s clothes (sizes newborn to 14) and, when the clothes are sold, splits the sales proceeeds with the people who consigned the clothes. The store will also happily accept clothes as donations.

melissa2006aThis store is managed by Melissa Rickard, with assistance from her mother Linda and other dedicated volunteers. Melissa is visually impaired (she is almost completely blind) and has experienced great difficulty in finding a job because of her disability. “Cool Kids Clothes” gives her the opportunity to work at a meaningful job, and also allows families in the community to buy good quality used children’s clothes at low prices.

Melissa makes use of adaptive equipment to assist her in performing day-to-day activities in the store. For example, she has a “bill reader” that enables her to distinguish different denominations of paper money. She has a computer with adaptive software that enables her to track the clothing inventory.

Cool Kids Clothes is presently accepting consignments of boys’ and girls’ Fall clothes. We hope to see you in our store soon.
