Give & Take Boutique
In our office we have a "Give & Take Boutique" stocked with gently used maternity and baby clothes as well as small odds and ends for pregnancy, newborns, and the postpartum period. We have a variety of shirts, pants, and dresses for your growing bump, and as for baby clothes, we have sizes from newborn to 12 months. From time to time we also have nursing bras, breast pumps, diapers, bottles, diaper bags, blankets, and other accessories. Stop by during business hours to see if we have anything you might need. Donations are always welcome! We're open Monday through Thursday from 9am to 4pm, closed for lunch between noon and 1pm.
