Updated Selling Protocols for 2023!

As many of you have seen, we are getting so many items in from our wonderful community that we run out of space and can’t keep up a good pace! We are constanly reassessing best practices so that our sellers experience a timely and smooth experience.

For 2023, we are operating as follows:

We buy Tuesday – Saturday, with the exception of the last 7 days of each month. We do not buy on Sundays and Mondays (please no drop-offs on Sunday/Monday and the final 7 days of the month; this will be our regular catch-up time). We are experiencing a very high volume of sellers; thank you for your patience. Drop-offs will be taking us 1-2 weeks to get to.

No Buy January!

No Buy January at Mama Goose & Jillian’s Drawers

What is No Buy January?
We will be taking a month-long pause from buying in items for both stores.

That’s such a long time! Why?
We want to take this time to use our resources and people-power to catch up on all the goodies already dropped off, balance inventory, and tackle other tasks in store!

When will you start buying again?
We will begin buying again on Feb. 1, 2023, at which time we will be buying in limited winter clothing items and other gear.

Have you seen the new store yet?

We’ve been open in our new location for almost two months now, and we have to say… we’re LOVING it! Every day this space feels a little more like home.

If you haven’t stopped by to visit us at 609 W Clinton St. yet, we hope you’ll come by soon! For a little added incentive, we’re having sales every week this month! It’s the perfect chance to get some great deals during your holiday shopping. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram to stay up-to-date on our December sales.

If you’re not comfortable shopping in person right now (we get it!), we’re happy to offer remote shopping for you! To get started, just send us a DM on social media or text us at (607) 216-7851 and let us know what you’re looking for.

And (drumroll please…) we’re buying again! CLICK HERE to learn about our buying process and to see what items we’re looking for now.

Thank you for continuing to support Mama Goose during a year full of lots of change and challenges. We’ve been feeling the love and are deeply grateful for the Mama Goose community 🧡

Share the Warmth!

We are proud to partner with Ithaca Rotary’s Share the Warmth clothing drive again this year by serving as a drop-off location!

All winter clothing in good repair is accepted. There is a special need for children’s and larger-sized outerwear (2X and up) and large-sized boots (13 and up), as well as coats, snow pants and boots; blankets; and hats, scarves, and mittens for all. Each article of clothing donated should be new or gently
used, and clean for future recipients.

The donated clothing is then distributed by Catholic Charities of Tompkins/Tioga free of charge to individuals who need such items for the winter months. Distribution will take place November 9 – 20. Last year, the program distributed more than 3,067 items to 753 adults and
514 children across Tompkins County.

You’ll find the familiar “red box” collection bin at our store until November 23!

Moving Sale & Consignment Extension

It’s hard to believe it’s our last week at 430 W. State Street! We’re so excited for our next chapter, and can’t wait to see you in our new space with you soon! Moving is a lot of work, so with that in mind…

We’re Having a Moving Sale!

25 % OFF non-clothing used items!

This includes strollers, baby carriers, high chairs, swings, shoes, and much more! This even includes consignment items that rarely go on sale 🎉✨💃🏻Come take advantage of these savings while you can – our last day in this location is this Saturday, September 26!

Items NOT included in this sale are masks, clothing, outerwear, winter boots, and new products.

Extending Consignment Periods

We want to be sure we’re taking care of our customers and consignors as best we can during this transition. For that reason we are extending all consignment periods until November 1st!

What does this mean for you? For consignors, this means we’ll have more time to sell your items when we reopen in our new location. For customers, it means we’ll have a lot of great items to pick from right away when we reopen! Talk about a win-win!

We do understand that some people may have extenuating circumstances, so if you need to pick up your items before November 1 please give us a call. We’ll be happy to make other arrangements with you.
You can reach us at 607-216-7851.

Announcing Our New Location!

We have enjoyed your eager anticipation! We are excited to announce that we’ll be moving just a few blocks away at the end of this month! We’ll be taking up residency at Clinton Plaza, with wonderful neighbors such as the Child Development Council and Finger Lakes Toy Library. There is LOTS of free parking right outside our doors, and the area will have more parking soon, after a minor parking reconstruction and landscaping project is completed. The location is also easily walkable and there’s a bus stop right in front. We’re working on exciting things for the future too, like CSA share pick-up, a community drop spot, and more! Please see the Q&A for more details below.

Jillian’s Drawers & Mama Goose Merger Q&A

Q: What will the new location be like? Is Mama Goose being absorbed by Jillian’s Drawers? 
A: Both stores will maintain an identity, slightly redefined, and both will be moving to a new location at 609 West Clinton St.! In the new location they will exist side by side, yet be open to each other. Jillian’s Drawers will embrace an identity as the baby store, supporting new parents from pregnancy and birth through approximately age 18 months. The Jillian’s Drawers side will contain areas for maternity, nursing, sleep, cloth diapers, babywearing, infant toys, and clothing. The Mama Goose side will offer all the things Mama’s need for their goslings, from toddlers up to teens! There will be areas for clothing over size 18 months (up to size 14), toys & games, books, shoes, outdoor wear/gear, dress up, reusable lunch/home goods, and more!

Q: When are you moving?
A: We are working on moving Mama Goose by the end of September and Jillian’s Drawers shortly after. We will announce firmer dates as soon as we can. There will be a window of time when each store stops buying used items and closes for a short time while we move and get set up in our new location. We’ll announce that when the time is right as well.

Q: Can I use my store credit at both stores?
A: Yes, however not until we have both stores on the same system. You will be able to use store credit at both stores once they are moved to the new location. 

Q: I have a gift certificate for one of these stores? Will it be valid at either one?
A: Once both stores are in the same location, you will be able to use your gift certificate at either location! Previously issued gift certificates will be honored. 

Q: Will buying policies/structure change?
A: We are working on evaluating both stores’ processes of buying used items and will revise our policies as we reopen in the new location. We would love your feedback!

Q: Will I see the same great Mama Goose staff?
A: Yes! Store managers and sales associates specific to Mama Goose store have come onboard for this new chapter. 

Q: Will the Community Room aspect of Jillian’s Drawers still be a part of this new version?
A: Yes! Our new location has a large room that will open as a community space once deemed safe. We plan to hold classes, meetups/support groups, playgroups, host birthday parties, and have this space available for rent once the time is right. We anticipate this reopening sometime in 2021.

Take our survey and be entered to win a $50 gift certificate!

We want to do our best to create the most amazing hub for our community! We’d love your feedback about these two stores and how we can best serve you moving forward. ​​​​​​​
