Pete & Polly was founded in 2011 and is newly owned and operated by Jimmy and Renee Garofalo. We have 5 children, all now graduates of Brunswick City Schools. This year we will welcome our 6th grandchild.
Our name, Pete & Polly, comes to us from a poem in The Peter Patter Book of Nursery Rhymes that we thought sweetly captures the playful spirit of childhood; it has become an inspiration for the joyful spirit of our store.
....high quality, beautiful, functional clothing and gear should be recycled and available to everybody. The items we offer at our store meet our personal standards and we’re proud to offer them to our family, friends and community.
....all families should be comfortable shopping in our stores. We've tailored our shop for our customer's convenience, with a custom playhouse for children to explore and a customer restroom decked out with a toddler potty and infant changing table.
.....parenting is one of the most difficult jobs in the world. It really does take a village. And as part of this village, we owe it to the families in our community to support them any way we can.
Why We Love Resale!
We're a Small Business.
When you choose to shop at Pete & Polly, you're supporting SO much! You're supporting a family owned small business, helping to boost the economy by supporting our employees and We live right here in Brunswick; we shop here, pay taxes here, and donate to our local schools and charities.
We Give Back.
We purchase all our inventory from right here in the community. That means we've stocked our shop by buying directly from local families, directly infusing our local economy one family at a time. When you shop here, you're supporting all the families who have received cash from selling their gently used items to Pete & Polly.
And we donate. To local churches, charities, schools, PTA groups and individual families with children in need. Any clothing or equipment we cannot sell at our shop is donated to The Oaks Family Center or another local charity.
Resale is Green.
When you shop Pete & Polly, you choose to reduce mass consumption by recycling and extending the life of quality children's products and you support locally purchased products. Recycle, Reduce, Resale!
Shopping Resale saves enormously on the costs of raising children. We offer year-round top notch, stylish clothing for less than even clearance prices at retail shops. Our toys, strollers, pack-n-plays and baby gear are always priced at well under 50% of the current retail (or sale) prices. Outgrow-->Sell Back-->Buy up!
