Shop Tomorrows is the parent-to-parent network for trading up kidswear. You trade your outgrown kidswear for tokens and then start shopping with those tokens. Or you can simply buy tokens and start shopping. Think of us as your epic hand-me-down network, where you can get the things you’ll love in the right size, season, and style from your neighborhood, network or beyond.
Less than 15% of donated clothing ends up being worn. The rest is landfilled or broken down into materials and repurposed into other things, like mattress filler. We encourage donating responsibly and locally to small organizations where you know your donations will be used by families in need.
Consignment stores and sites provide pennies on the dollar payouts for sellers and price their goods too high for buyers. Shop Tomorrows’ circular economy model provides a value that is 1-for-1 for shoppers AND sellers. That outgrown fleece now trades up for the next size, and money is never lost. You no longer lose 80% of the value to steep commissions. Now, you keep the full value of your sale and trades it up for your next item -- without losing a penny on commissions. In addition, by trading up with us you are part of a community of like-minded savvy parents who value sustainability and style.
For every kidswear item that you give a second life to by trading it up on Shop Tomorrows, you save approximately 700 gallons of water and 1/3 of a pound of chemicals that go into producing those clothes.

In the event the item or items are being delivered in person, Shop Tomorrows recommends proceeding with caution. We suggest arranging your meeting in a public, well-lit location with video surveillance. Additionally, if you’re meeting a Buyer or Seller for the first time, we recommend you bring another individual with you to the meeting location, as you will likely be more comfortable interacting with the other party with a familiar individual with you.

Think of this like a LinkedIn feature, where we let you know when you're connected to someone through the site either directly, or through friends. Cool, right?
We use tokens so that you can get the greatest value out of your sale. Using tokens creates a one-for-one exchange where you are getting the full value of your item. For example, on Shop Tomorrows, you can sell an outgrown vest and get a new one in return with the tokens you made from that sale. Compare that to a consignment store or site in which you would get just a few dollars back - not enough to buy you another vest that fits, let alone coffee! Using tokens allows you to maintain the entire value of your sale rather than lose the majority of it to the website or store’s steep commissions, typical of those other guys.
$1 Tomorrows Token = $1, so list your item for the amount you’d want to make in dollars. For example, if you were to sell a vest and wanted $30 for it, sell it for 30 tokens. We also help you determine how much to price something for when you’re listing an item. As you enter the price, you’ll see a window in which Shop Tomorrows suggests the percentage of the retail price that you should list for based on Brand, Condition and Category type.
When the order is marked as received by the buyer, the tokens will be credited to your wallet.
When the order is marked as received by the buyer, the tokens will be credited to your wallet.
