Community Spotlight

Sprout Children’s Consignment Boutique
owned by Natalie Wilmer and her son Jake

What is the concept behind your store?
Our concept at Sprout is Recycle, Reuse & Restyle. As parents we show our children by example how to live...this includes how to shop. You can save money and be more eco-friendly without sacrificing on your style. I wanted to create a shop that is not only mom-friendly but also kid-friendly. Sprout is full of excitement & fun! The children that come through our doors are just as important to us as the moms and dads. And based on that idea, our play area and kid-friendly layout is a huge part of who Sprout is.

You carry both consigned and new products in your store. What items do you carry that would be considered earth-friendly?
We carry Little Twig baby lotions and bath products made of natural and organic ingredients. We have I Play bathing suits using reusable swim diapers. You’ll also find Green Sprouts eco-friendly baby products, Envirosac reusable shopping bags, and Vulli Sophie the Giraffe & Friends all natural rubber chew toys made in France. And of course, buying our consignment items incorporates the idea of reusing, recycling and restyling.

How does Sprout reuse the items that are not sold?
We donate all items that don’t sell and I typically donate a portion of our proceeds to CHKD.
