The Red Hen Boutique
Updated 12/2011: After dealing with the Weaver Street closing, The Red Hen decided to relocate. No longer in downtown Carrboro, they have a beautiful, fancy new shop in Chapel Hill's University Mall. The pictures below are from the new place, complete with a play area, and the address below is up-to-date. All other information, such as what they sell, events, and our review, remain accurate!
The Red Hen is bursting with goodies for every parent-shopper out there. Consigned items for a steal? Check. Handmade items by local artisans? Check. Hard to find baby brands? Check.
they tell you what they will sell and if you get store credit or cash. If you want, they will donate any merchandise they don't want to Welcome Baby in Durham (or you can have it back, of course). The Red Hen also keeps waiting lists so you can be called when a specific consigned piece comes in. Yours truly is waiting on a booster with tray that attaches to the chair.
And all new in the University Mall location - a great little play area for the kids to enjoy while you shop. The new space is so light and open so you can keep an eye on your tots while in the shop. The experience is quite enjoyable!
The Red Hen hosts weekly events (such as a Breast Feeding cafe). You can also subscribe to their blog to get updated information on new arrivals, although it doesn't look like it has been used too recently.
The Red Hen is definitely a unique place. So enjoy shopping!
