You’re the Best.

The thing we love the most about Half-Pint Resale isn’t the cute cheap kids clothing and toys and everything else we need (although, don’t get us wrong, it’s high on the list), but the Community that Half-Pint Resale creates.

It’s full – to the brim! – with people who care about each other and want to support each other, and want the best for each other.   We see it at the sale, we see it in line when people are chatting and meeting new friends.  We see it in consignors who are parting with their favorite stripey sleeper because while it’s hard to pass it on, they can’t wait to see someone else find their treasure and love it and make memories in it just like they did.  We see it in volunteers who sign up for the same shift every year or with the same people, because even though they didn’t know each other prior to the sale, they are now Half-Pint friends.

And we see it in the Supporters who keep Half-Pint free for ALL shoppers, and for the services that they provide for the community.  

We hope that you’ll take a gander at all they have to offer;  and if you use their services, tell them Half-Pint Resale sent you.

Mothers’ Milk Alliance – Mothers’ Milk Alliance was born in 2007 from the meeting of two mothers: one with extra breastmilk and one with low milk supply. Both dilemmas are common and have occurred throughout time.   One timeless solution has been milk sharing. Shared breastmilk can optimize infant health and nutrition, while profoundly strengthening social bonds and community resilience. But many mothers either do not know another breastfeeding woman or do not feel comfortable asking for such intimate help. Moreover, mothers want basic assurance that milk from another woman is safe. Their healthcare practitioners want this too.   Mothers’ Milk Alliance is an informed choice model of human milk sharing that facilitates donor lab testing, safety education and health screening, and free and local accessibility for infants up to 6 months of age.
