Our Mission

To provide peace-of-mind knowing you have what you need for your growing family.

Our History

Tykes2Teens Consignments was founded by two friends in 2007. Their goal was simple: provide affordable, gently-used children’s clothing, toys and equipment to consumers in the local Central PA area. Just like the families we serve who have changing needs, we as a company also needed to change and adapt. Over the years we have grown in size and scope. We pride ourselves on listening to the needs of our customers and work hard to continue the tradition of our founders while also expanding to accommodate our budding consignor base.

In the spring of 2016, we became a fully family-owned and operated small business and slowly began revamping our look to reflect our new owners’ personalities. A few of our recent exciting enhancements include: acceptance of items geared toward our growing young adult demographic; movement to a new, larger space at the Park Inn by Radisson; and a redesigned website we hope will be a resource for all members of the Tykes2Teens family. As we look toward the future we see nothing but exciting opportunities and welcome you to be a part of this journey with us.
