A new children’s consignment store that will specialize in high-end children’s clothes, furniture, strollers and toys will open its doors in Birch Bay by the end of next month. 

The store will also offer maternity clothes for moms-to-be.

Katie’s Corner will offer new and gently used items. Katie Montague, the store’s namesake, and business partner Gina Weigum believe there is a tremendous need for their shop in the Birch Bay/Blaine community.

“The more I spoke to busy moms in the area, the more I knew we needed a higher-end kids’ consignment store – one that I would shop at for my own kids,” Weigum said.

The store aims to cater to families, and will offer a play area to entertain kids while their parents shop. “We’ve tried to anticipate the needs of the parents, and one thing high on the list was to keep kids happy during their visit at our store,” Montague said.  

Resale shopping has become popular in recent years in part due to the economy.  High-end items offer shoppers the ability to have the designs and styles they desire at a fraction of the cost of buying new.

Katie’s Corner will be accepting consignment items on Saturday, January 19 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Monday, January 21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

Once the store opens, consignment items can be dropped off by appointment only.  

Katie’s Corner will be located at 4829 Alderson Rd. #105, next to The C Shop at Terrell Creek Landing.
