Twin crusades to convert more parents to cloth diapering and to instill confidence in the art of “babywearing” have helped make Greenberries a destination for shoppers from as far away as Annapolis and Gaithersburg. Providing education and support to parents wasn't part of the original formula for the Columbia children's and maternity consignment boutique, which is celebrating its fifth birthday with a party at the Snowden Center store Aug. 16. But just six months after opening the store in 2009, owner Rachel Baliff jumped on a customer's suggestion to sell cloth diapers.

MANY PEOPLE I KNOW, myself among them, maneuver themselves into cleaning closets or cupboards with the "If I haven't used it/worn it/needed it in the last year, it's out" ploy.It works, though it's almost a guarantee that you'll need it or want it three days after it's gone.The ploy works equally well on sail lockers and garages and backs of station wagons, those official and unofficial repositories of nautical "stuff."It's interesting what can accumulate in a year or three, from hardware off the boat you sold to a terrific gimbaled guitar holder or a dependable but not-quite-state-of-the-art radio.

In a city starved for luxury flagship retail stores, consignment shops are the closest thing fashionistas have to getting the same haute couture looks worn by the world's rich and famous. Although the fashions might not always be current, they are always a fraction of the cost of clothes found in the shopping districts of New York, Paris, London and L.A. In Baltimore, the Roland Park neighborhood offers the greatest concentration of high-end consignment shops. "The Roland Park area is ideal for this industry," said Betsy Wendell, owner of Octavia Cross Keys, a women's boutique in North Baltimore.

Twenty years ago, Jan Wittenbach and her partners opened The Clearing House, a fine furniture, household wares and jewelry consignment shop in Timonium. Little did Wittenbach realize she would be part of the gently-used revolution, educating customers on the beauty and economy of buying recycled and well-crafted goods, be they mahogany sideboards or exquisite St. John knits. "My partners and I really had to introduce Baltimore to this idea of buying resale," says Wittenbach, an avid tennis player and former elementary school teacher.

Up at the crack of dawn to fight crowds of bargain-seekers at another weekend yard sale, Stacie Griffin and Chris Lowey became convinced -- the county needed a children's clothing consignment shop.From that early-morning revelation last fall, came Second Childhood about three weeks ago at the corner of Frederick Road and St. John's Lane in Ellicott City."With so many young families in the area, the market is ideal for a children's shop.

The word from this fall's massive furniture market at High Point, N.C., is that manufacturers are optimistic about sales because the economy is improving. If the findings of a new nationwide study are true, there should be a strong market for their goods once consumers start feeling better about their pocketbooks.America's Research Group surveyed 1,000 people and found most of us haven't bought new furniture in nearly a decade. If we did buy furniture, it was most likely to be an entertainment center, which nearly 16 percent of those surveyed had bought recently.

It also specializes in giving women a second chance - even those who never set foot in the Main Street store. Clothing that doesn't sell and isn't reclaimed is donated to nonprofit organizations dedicated to helping women land professional jobs, including Baltimore's Suited to Succeed. One woman stands out for Torrible. "She came up to me at an event and told me she got her clothes for her job interview and for her first few months of work from my shop's donations," said Torrible, who opened Wear It's At six years ago.

Perky sunflowers, fragrant lavender and vibrant greenery surround a creaky wooden porch full of oddities on an Annapolis side street. A well-used plow, a porcelain wash basin and a cast-iron stove hardly seem germane to a consignment shop filled with high fashion, assorted art and tony accessories, as well as the occasional piece of vintage furniture. Owner Stella Breen-Franklin typically greets shoppers to One Petticoat Lane with an effusive "Wahoo!" and a cup of steamy tea, mint- flavored but never, ever iced, even when temperatures reach triple digits.
