Sheshemade is a place I go for some custom pieces for the girls. From holiday themes to characters like Elmo you can find monogrammed, custom clothes at She She Made.
Bargains offline…come from TJ Maxx for our family. I LOVE TJ Maxx and it’s great that I live 100 miles from one because I rarely go there but whenever I do, there are bargains. The above fall sweater was from there a couple years ago. Miss E wore it first and this year Miss A will wear it.
My absolute favorite custom clothes maker is my own mother. She is creative, gifted and makes many things for our girls. I’m very grateful for the girls to have handmade treasures from a grandma. Other handmade treasures I find are on Etsy.
I’ve bought dresses for the girls on Etsy and just search for what I’m looking for to find a plethora of treasures. You need to dig for best prices but I just purchased Miss E’s halloween costume from Etsy last week and am so excited for her Strawberry Shortcake debut in a month plus it will be great dress up clothing.
Hanna Andersson is both online and in free standing stores, far from the North Dakota prairie. They are not cheap but the quality of clothes is high. They stand up through many, many washes and have fantastic Scandinavian designs and color palettes. You also need to watch sales on Hanna Andersson for great deals. Nathan’s sister bought matching sweaters a few years ago for us from Hanna Andersson and then last year I put Anika in Elizabeth’s former sweater, finding the match in a larger size on Ebay to continue another season of matching Hanna Andersson sweaters.
Ebay is one large, high-end rummage sales for used name brand and beautiful kids clothing. I don’t have TIME to search like I used to but I have found many sweet, custom “boutique” gently used clothing for the girls on Ebay. I also often find NWT (new with tags) and NWOT (new with out tags) clothing for them.
Some of my most favorite clothing has come from Ebay. If only I had more time to search for more deals!
While I find many clothes for myself on Nordstrom, I also found Anika’s Christmas dress from there last year. Miss E has a new fall coat from there this season.
Gymboree seems to be an online mega store for girls clothes. I never EVER buy full price for Gymboree. They have ridiculous bargains and sales. I get coupons in the mail and emails. The only Gymboree store in North Dakota is in Fargo and it’s small. We prefer online over the store that is 3 hours from our home.
You can see I love dressing our girls but the greatest challenge I have clothing our kids comes from our eldest. He’s long, lean and BIG. Hunter’s clothes have to come from online because they don’t carry clothes for our 6’3″, 195 lb. 14 year old son in stores on the prairie. JcPenney’s, Gap, Old Navy have tall sizes that fit him plus fantastic emails that come with free shipping and sales which is when I purchase. I just bought winter items for him last week on LL Bean and Sierra Trading Post. LL Bean quality can’t be beat plus free shipping. Sierra Trading Post is packed full of deals and I never buy with out coupons and free shipping on there also.
Where do you find kids clothing deals?
I’m linking up today with Kelly’s Korner for other fun suggestions.
Moving from Atlanta to Frankfort, KY was a eye opener for me and deals. But I have managed to do very well for myself… I am not that far from big city but hate going… see my post here about my bargains…

We like Lands End online, with frequent emails offering free shipping and money off bonuses. I’m often told my boys are tall at 12 and 14 (5’8″ and 5’9″) but your young man is tall indeed!
