Little Green Beans Opens for Austin Parents

published on September 27, 2011

Everyone knows kids grow like weeds, and thanks to a new consignment shop in North Austin, the inevitability of your child’s rapid growth doesn’t have to cost a pretty penny. Little Green Beans, at 9070 Research Blvd, is now open for business, but it’s not an everyday sort of consignment shop; this store caters to the needs of its community in lots of different ways.

The main business you’ll find at Little Green Beans is a consignment shop for children’s clothes, toys, furniture, and equipment. Whether you want to find something gently used (and easier on the pocketbook) to purchase for your child or you want to give your child’s items new life, Little Green Beans is happy to help. But Little Green Beans isn’t just one of those impersonal stores where you walk in and make your purchase or sell your items and walk back out. It’s a place that celebrates moms and their little ones with a children’s play room, mom’s room, community meeting room, and special events. They also offer specialized services like on-site alterations, monogramming, and customer wish lists.

Another great service they’ve recently added to their lineup is the Lil’ Sprouts Toy Club. For a fee of $50 for 6 weeks, families can rent two toys at a time for three weeks. Children are able to test-drive items like wooden toys, exercise balls, and stacking blocks to see if they like them. If they fall in love, parents can then purchase the toys; if not, they can check out a couple more and keep playing.

On top of having a wonderful store and programs, they also have a helpful and convenient website. Among other things, it helps you determine what items they are looking for (very helpful before you pack up all your items and a car full of children), and helps you get a step ahead with the consignment agreement. You can also find product safety recall information.

With its home in northwest Austin, at the crossroads of 183 and Burnet, the store is convenient for families in the Milwood and Great Hills communities. If you’re looking for a new home in one of these lovely areas, you’ll want to give Austin Realtor Brian Talley a call.
