We never expected this! Back in 1998, we were disappointed when a local consignment store that we shopped went out of business. Our daughter was 6 months old, and we had just started enjoying the rewards of consigning already outgrown clothes and buying the next size up with the credits we earned. It was a fantastic way to save money clothing our daughter. And there was always that delicious joy of discovering a great “find” and spending just a fraction of what you’d spend in a mall store. All that excitement turned to disappointment when our new favorite store closed down. Where were we going to buy affordable clothes and stuff for our daughter? Well, we knew just what we had to do! Open our own kid’s consignment store. For us and for all the other families out there who needed a way to afford having kids! So that’s what we did.
Cutie Patuties opened in a small strip mall in Leominster, MA in 1998 with two employees. We’ve moved a few times, added more stores and a bigger staff, and today we’ve grown to be the Largest Childrens Consignment store in New England. This wasn’t in the plans, but we are thrilled that this is where we are today. We pride ourselves in being “The Best in Experienced Children’s Clothing”. But more important, we pride ourselves in providing you and your family a fun, easy way to shop for everything you need for the little people in your lives. And we treasure the relationships we’ve built with our customers and with our consignors. Some of our consignors have been with us from the beginning and we couldn’t have done it without you.
Today we have 4 consignment stores in Leominster, MA and people from all over New England come to shop our stores.
Cutie Patuties specializes in gently-used items for sizes from newborn-preteen. We sell clothing, toys, furniture and baby equipment.
Our store, Q picks up and outfits your young adult in the hottest mall brands at prices you can afford! Q is You! Q can be whatever style your young adult is all about, retro, vintage, hip, modern, romantic, or rustic, we’ve got it all!
We’ve recently added CP & Company, where you’ll find an abundant selection of Misses, Petites and Plus sized women’s clothing, shoes and accessories. We need a little pampering all for us!
Don’t forget to check out our selection of furniture and home décor in our Cutiques, ETC. store. We have everything from the kitchen table you need, to great lamps, baskets, and wall hangings to give your home a whole new look.
Our inventory changes daily in all of our stores. Check back often, and if you see something you like, grab it today, because it will be gone tomorrow!
Thank you to all our consignors and customers throughout the years. We wouldn’t be here without you. And we are happy we are here.
