COSHOCTON – As a mother of multiples, Lynn Slack knows it can be expensive to buy your children name brand clothing. However, her new children’s resale store, Mom’s Boutique, makes that easier for parents to do.

“I love watching kids come in here and be able to get something like an Under Armour shirt for $5,” Slack said. “It’s nice to see them happy and excited.”

Mom’s Boutique opened Feb. 22, at 375 Downtowner Plaza. The grand opening will be held from 2 to 3 p.m. Saturday, March 14 with drawings for prizes and a visit from Mickey Mouse.

The store sales top name brand kids clothes, maternity clothes, Melissa & Doug toys, primitive decorations for your home, children’s hair bows, and a little bit of everything else according to Slack. She also has a store in Dresden where you can find Longaberger baskets in addition to clothing.

“I lived here in Coshocton for several years as a teen and wanted to give something back to the area and this is my way of doing that,” Slack said.

Her store also provides people with an easy way to get rid of gently used clothing and shoes.

“I buy off locals and pay cash,” Slack said. “It’s a quick way to make some money.”

She also tries to keep her prices reasonable.

“I try to keep the (resale) items under $10 so they are affordable,” Slack said. “I want all kids to be able to have an Under Armour or Nike shirt if they want one.”

The store will offer regular specials like half off on Wednesdays for clothing and shoes and Slack plans to have a special room for fire victims to get donations from.

Mom’s Boutique is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and Slack encourages people to come down and see what she has to offer.

“I enjoy meeting new people,” she said.
