10 Main St # 10, Dobbs Ferry, NY 10522
It has by far the largest selection of toys, books, baby gear, strollers, etc. It’s not necessarily cheaper than new, but it works out if you consign clothes there that you can get some pretty good stuff for your store credit money. They also have a dollar sale twice a year at the American Legion hall near the train station, where they sell all the excess clothing they have left in the fall (from summer stuff) and spring (from winter stuff). If you buy something in the store, they’ll put you on the mailing list to find out when the sales are.

Goodwill in New Rochelle often has furniture donated from Target still in the box and highly discounted. These are returns that Target can’t sell, but they are fully functional.
