Canadian Mamas: online kids clothes shopping

Are there any good brands that have really decent pricing and a Canadian warehouse? I have a cart full of Carters items but shipping and duties bring my total from $109 to $157. That hurts. But I can't find anything that compares in price and quality within Canada.

Any suggestions?

My mom shops Baby Gap/Old Navy a lot. I don't know the shipping costs offhand, but I think it is reasonable.

Yeah... I've ordered from them before. I'm just not excited about what I'm seeing now. I'm going to look again. I've been checking sears too but not impressed.

I shop at Naartjie. They just recently started shipping from Canada.
And Next in the UK ships for free and pays the import duties! I adore their clothes. Really good quality. Their little girls' tights so are so cute.

I just put in a small order on Children's place's Canadian site. They have a sale on just now.

I love love love Naartjie. Most of my sons clothes are from their Essentials line. At $11-12 dollars a piece, I think they are great quality for the money. And they don't tend to have silly sayings or be too sports oriented.

I haven't ordered any baby/kids stuff online only because we were gifted so much stuff, but I have checked out places and not overly excited about shipping, prices or selection. I have found great things randomly at Joe Fresh, Old Navy and consignment stores, but would love if someplace like Hatley had lower prices and free shipping!

Re: Canadian Mamas: online kids clothes shopping

I think I'm just jaded that the fees were too much with the Carters stuff. I'm not liking anything I see anywhere else. Or if I do, they don't also have underwear and pjs which is something I need to get. I'm going to have to stop looking and leave it be for a bit.

Thanks for all the suggestions though! I will come back to them once I get over my disappointment!
