About Merry Go Rounds
Have you ever struggled to find affordable and sustainable clothes and toys for your kids? That's where Merry Go Rounds comes in.
Our mission is to make shopping for kids more sustainable, affordable, and fun. We believe that resale should be the default way of shopping for kids' clothes, shoes, accessories, books, and toys. And we're here to make secondhand shopping as easy (and fun) as possible!
Beth and Melissa Mazzeo are the mother-daughter duo behind Merry Go Rounds. Beth has owned the business for over 20 years, and Melissa recently joined as co-owner and CEO after earning an MBA and Master of Environmental Management from Yale University. They have also expanded into an online business, while still being rooted in community through a physical store in Easton where they are proud to serve local families.
OUR VALUES & MISSION
Our mission is to change people’s perception of resale and bring joy and a personal touch to the shopping experience. Through our business, we hope to reduce waste, promote conscious consumption, and keep resources within local communities.
To be a leader in our community and industry.
We're committed to providing good jobs for our community by hiring locally, even as our business expands beyond our physical store. We are also proud to be a member of NARTS, the National Association of Resale Professionals; a member of the Easton Chamber of Commerce; and a founding brand signatory of the 2020 Circular Fashion Pledge. We give financial and in-kind support to local nonprofits that strengthen our communities, as well as those that create positive environmental impact.
To obsess over quality and excellence.
We want our customers to feel confident in their purchases and trust that they are getting the best value for their money. That's why we take extra measures to ensure that every consigned item that we sell meets our strict standards for quality. We triple check each item to ensure that it is in excellent condition, free of stains, tears, or any other defects.
To reduce textile waste and be a leader in this important conversation.
We want to change people’s perception of resale and bring joy and a personal touch to the shopping experience. By buying secondhand diverts high-quality products from going to landfills prematurely while also reducing demand for new items. We estimate that in 2019 alone, we kept 6.24 tons of high-quality items in circulation, reducing demand for the resource-intensive production of new items.
