Maternity and Nursing Must-Haves...
Kokanee Creek - Play It Again Kids, Maternity Styles, 2016/17
Let's face it, most clothes look way better on, than they do on the hanger.
So we asked one of our customer-consignors and soon to be Nelson mom-of-two, Abenie, to try on some items for a little fashion shoot down at Kokanee Creek, one recent Sunday.
Please click the link below to enjoy all the outfits and pics.
Call or come in store for prices and availability if you'd like any of these clothing items (shoes and accessories, model's own).

When I shop for clothes I like to try stuff on. It has to fit right...right? Shopping online is good for choice but I can't count the number of times I've bought online and it looks bad on me.
What I like about Play It Again is that I can find good mat stuff and the prices are way cheaper. There's no shipping cost! ...I can touch the fabrics and try them on... even if I have to try on a few things I always end up with something that fits, and that's gold!"
Maternity labels you'll see at Play It Again Kids...
Nelson is a wonderful place for the discerning fashion shopper, offering a smorgasbord of stylin' clothing boutiques that could easily rub shoulders with stores in Toronto's Queen Street West, Vancouver's West 4th or Calgary's 17th Ave. Wonderful unless you're pregnant, that is....
For finding clothing options for mums-to-be in and around Nelson and the Kootenays can be a little more challenging...with only a handful of stores stepping up to the task.
Fortunately Play It Again Kids offers a wide and wonderful selection of new and gently used maternity wear, so there's no need to make your forty weeks a sentence of hard time in sweat pants, PJs and your dad's old shirts!
No matter how you roll - office diva, stay-at-home goddess, or girl-about-town, we've all the styles you'll need to keep you glowing and gorgeous 'till the big day.
Whether you're looking for trendy nursing tops, maternity pants and jeans, active wear, swimsuits, nursing bras, dresses, sweaters or outerwear we always have a good range of sizes and styles to choose from.
And better yet, buying consigned items allows you to save as much as 75% off the original retail prices, leaving you more cash to spend on those pampering essentials.
Our new items (Thyme, Motherhood, Bellysima, Bravado and Ripe) are offered at about 50% or less compared to regular retail store prices.

February to March - we're gearing up for Spring with lighter garments, fresh spring shades, lighter pants, maternity jeans and cotton tops etc.
April through July - our maternity focus will be on Summer, with more shorts, T-shirts, swimwear, lighter tops and shorter skirts - discover cute bold florals, solid colours, stripe prints, and a fresh summer palette - of whites, creams, navy, salmon, peach, fresh greens and more.
August to end of September - at this time of year we focus more on fashion-forward Fall clothing with a nod to warmth, style and comfort, usually with warmer nature inspired tones of brown, green, orange and neutrals.
