Little Hang-Ups
8653 N. Beach St.
Ste. 217
Keller, TX 76244
(817) 231-0964
www.littlehang-ups.comIf you are a bargain shopper, then you will like shopping at consignment shops. Not only can you find great deals, but you can also get designer clothing for yourself and your new baby. Little Hang-Ups offer mothers, including expecting mothers, the option of buying gently used clothes in two locations in Keller and Saginaw. Mothers can still shop for themselves at either of these locations, and when their pregnancy is over, they can sell their clothes back for some extra cash. The joys of consignment shops just got better for mothers.
