Information about childer


What is childer? 

childer is an online marketplace where you can buy and sell quality second hand kids wear and gear for ages 0 - 10.

Hi, I'm Summer, a busy working mum, and this is my blended family; my partner Cam, stepson Vinnie, daughter Frankie and our baby Sebastian who is 1. We have a fun and chaotic life (sometimes also not-so-fun!). My passion for buying and selling pre-loved clothes has come from spending time with the team at Designer Wardrobe, and just due to the fact that our kids seem to continuously need new clothes as they've already grown out of the last lot! I love buying them quality clothes, but often these only get worn once or twice before they outgrow them!   

I'm also worried about the impact fast fashion has on the planet, with cast-off clothing filling up landfills at an alarming rate. Kids clothing is a massive contributor to this waste.

childer is a way that parents can buy their children quality clothes at reasonable prices and then can be passed on again and again.

When you scroll through our site,  you'll find great brands and lots of natural fabrics and materials to swaddle your little ones in, plus beautiful toys, books, accessories, and furniture - all without the hefty price tag of buying new and without harming the planet. We only accept items in great nick and clothing that is made from good stuff - we're talking cotton, wool, or silk. No nasty synthetics (with the exception of footwear) and you won't find any plastic toys here either. We want to offer that luxury vibe without the grit-your-teeth price tag.
