Stroud Times visited Kids Stuff at their new home in Brimscombe Mills.
Part of the Grace Network, and previously situated across the road at Brimscombe Port, Kids Stuff is a social enterprise part of the Grace Network whose mission is to support local families within the Stroud District, build community, walking side by side through life’s journey.
Caroline West from Kids Stuff said: “Since late November we have been having pop-up sales and it has been fantastic to welcome back our loyal customers and meet new ones!
“We support families in several ways. Firstly, we have an on-site shop that sells preloved children’s clothing (0-11 years), toys, and baby equipment.
“We keep our pricing low to make it accessible to all. Our shop is currently running pop-up sales on Wednesdays 10 am-2.30 and Fridays 10 am-4 pm. Secondly, if money is a barrier, we have a referral system for families in need. They can get referred by local organisations to get items for free or a voucher to purchase items from the shop. To find out more, look at our website https://www.strouddistrictkidsstuff.org.uk/referrals
“We are extremely lucky that the local community supports us by donating their pre-loved items. Without this, we wouldn’t be able to support local families.”
Kids Stuff is open for donations on Wednesdays and Fridays from 10 am-12 pm.
