About Us

The Children’s Exchange has been Rochester, MN’s premier one-stop family shop since 1986. We buy and sell new and gently used clothing, toys and equipment, furniture and much more! The best part? You get the cash upfront with no need to wait for your items to sell!

Our store was established in 1986 by Janice Williams, the current owners’ sister. Jan watched her kids grow up and realized how fast kids grow, with her last child on the way, she didn’t want to go and re-invest in new baby equipment, maternity clothes, and baby clothes, etc. So she started going to garage sales and looking for things in the classifieds, which she found frustrating trying to find what she needed in the right size and season. So she asked herself, “Wouldn’t it be nice to have a store where you could go and find quality used items all in one location?”

And thus, The Children’s Exchange was born. It has always been a locally owned and operated family business, owned by Jolene and Tom Anderson since 1996. Tom and Jolene, along with the rest of the Children’s Exchange Family, have been buying and selling quality infant through teen clothing, men’s and maternity styles for work and for home, toys and games, children’s books, movies, baby equipment, children’s furniture, and much more!
