Sweet Repeat boutique opens in the Valley

~ originally published in the Journal of Business on March 1, 2012 ~

Husband-and-wife team Matt and Bernadette Crawford have opened Sweet Repeat Kids Resale Boutique, a used-clothing store, at 1510 N. Argonne in Spokane Valley.

The shop is located in 1,200 square feet of leased space, says Bernadette Crawford, who currently is the store’s only employee. Another used-clothing store previously occupied the space.

Sweet Repeat buys and sells name-brand, gently used children’s clothing, Crawford says. It also takes toys, books, cloth diapers, and maternity clothes, and offers cash or store credit. The store steam cleans every item it receives to make it presentable for resale, Crawford says.

Sweet Repeat also features Build-a-Bow, a service that allows customers to build their own ribbon hair flowers. Another company, Born in a Barn, rents a corner of the floor space and sells repurposed furniture, home décor, and sock monkeys, Crawford says.
