I had my eyes on the Nuna Sena Aire, but didn’t love the hefty price tag so we were trying to find it secondhand or on sale. Searching for quality gently used gear can be so time consuming!! We tried Craigslist to no avail, ebay had nothing, Nuna products are LIKE NEVER ON SALE ANYWHERE—you get the idea.
Enter Good Buy Gear. Somehow in a last-minute effort to find something on sale, Josh stumbled onto their website and OMG they had a Nuna Sena Aire (barely used) for over 40% off full price! Cue angels singing. Upon a little more digging we learned that Good Buy Gear was a mama-owned, secondhand baby/kids gear online marketplace in Denver, born out of the hope to streamline the process and save busy mamas’ time when selling and buying gently loved gear. They had so much good stuff on their website (their stroller inventory was amaze, and the other item we were in desperate need of was a travel stroller), and I decided I had to see what this place was all about. We hopped in the car and went for a visit to their local warehouse and I was impressed. I knew right away I had to share this place with all of you!
I had the pleasure of chatting with COO and Co-Founder Jessica Crothers about the business and how it came to be. Jessica and Kristin Langenfield (CEO and Co-Founder) hatched the idea for Good Buy Gear on a getaway to Crested Butte, and by the time the trip was over had decided to go into business together. #friendgoals What started as a baby gear swap, soon morphed into a full-fledged marketplace as it became clear that there was a serious gap in the marketplace for selling and buying secondhand baby/kids gear. Sure, Craigslist and Ebay existed, but there really wasn’t a service that would take the stress off of busy mamas and do ALL the work for them. Once Jessica and Kristin streamlined the selling process (see below), Good Buy Gear really took off. I love that this business was created by mamas, for mamas, with the best intentions at heart. When Jessica talks about her favorite parts of running the business, one of the highlights for her is connecting with and helping other mamas. Doesn’t that just give you all the feels?
Let me break it down for you and tell you how Good Buy Gear works:
X’s and O’s,
