LEWISTOWN - Children grow up fast, often leaving piles of lightly used clothing and toys behind. Recycled Baby, a local resale store, has relocated and expanded to give parents a place to buy and sell their childrens' clothing and accessories.
When owner, Heather Brehman Willow, opened the store a year ago, her goal was to provide parents with a way to find nice items for their children at reasonable prices.
"We were both single mothers. We know how it is when you're on your own with your kids," Amy Fox, manager, said.

Recycled Baby, a resale store owned by Heather Brehman Willow, has expanded to include a better selection of new and lightly used children’s clothing items and accessories.
Since its opening in June 2011, Recycled Baby has outgrown its location in the Yeagertown Plaza and moved to Lewistown. Now located at 1130 West Fourth St., near Lowe's, the store has tripled in size. Parents can browse three rooms of lightly used, brand name clothing, shoes, toys and baby accessories.
As the store expands, Recycled Baby is phasing out of its previous consignment accounts and operating as a resale store. The store will purchase large items, such as cribs, car seats, changing tables and strollers for cash. They will also purchase infant, juniors and maternity clothing by appointment on Saturdays only.
In addition to resale items, the store will feature new local vendors. Cunningham's Custom Creations has a table near the front of the store which offers a variety of hair accessories for girls. Monkeyshiners Handmade has a display of their handsewn bib and pacifier clips, diaper clutches and unique children's antique furniture from Winter Wheat Antiques. The store is still accepting new vendors of child related items.
Recycled Baby is open each Monday through Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., each Thursday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., each Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and each Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. For more information, visit Recycled Baby Dot Com on Facebook or stop in and talk to Amy Fox.
