Welcome to Mama Goose!

We, along with our sister store Jillian’s Drawers, are Ithaca’s home for gently-used children’s clothes along with all things natural parenting, cloth diapers, maternity wear, and toys.

Updates & Announcements

We are now buying spring and summer items. Now is a great time to sell your bikes, strollers (2016 and newer), sandals, and rain wear!

What to expect when you visit us

When you visit Mama Goose, you’ll find a great selection of both new and gently-used items. At Mama Goose, you’ll find clothing ranging from size 18 month through big kids size 14. We also carry books, games, toys, shoes, and seasonal items both new and used.

Right next door is our sister store, Jillian’s Drawers. There you’ll find infant clothing sizes newborn to 18 months, maternity and nursing clothing, baby gear, cloth diapers, baby carriers, feeding supplies, baby gifts, books, sleep solutions, and more, both new and used!

Our staff aims to help parents find solutions in a supportive, non-judgemental way that empowers and helps create community.

How we price items

Unlike thrift stores which sell donated items, our gently-used items are sold on a consignment basis. This means that a portion of sale goes to the person who brought in the item to begin with. We set prices based on their desirability, condition, and new selling price. We prioritize high-quality items that will serve our customers as well as a brand new item, but at a more affordable price!

If you’re interested in learning more about the consignment process, please visit the How to Sell page.
