Our Mission Statement

I just dropped off my first items to consign at the Ankeny store. Doing this was easy, and I love the fact that if my items don't sell, they will be donated to charity. I also shopped after dropping items off. Cute toys and great prices on children's clothes! A definite win for the Prairie Trail neighborhood and the city of Ankeny!

We stopped in 2 minutes before close as we didn't realize the Ames store had different hours and we had come from out of town. The employees were so gracious and allowed us in, did not rush us (we came for one specific item), and were amazingly friendly! We were 'wow'ed' by their customer service.

I have found SUCH great toys and clothes for really good prices! I really like how organized and clean it is. AND you can sell items there!

Becky Dressen

I love Duck Worth Wearing! It is a great place to sell my kids used items and find new ones! I especially loved the great deal I got today on a cute dollhouse bookcase. It was just what I was looking for!

We shop and consign with Duck Worth Wearing. They have always treated us fairly and respectfully, even when some of our items weren't accept for them to sell. The store is one of our favorite places to shop. It's clean, trendy and a great atmosphere. The staff is terrific. Plus, if you are ever at a charitable event, you will likely see a donation from Duck Worth Wearing. Definitely one of the best businesses in town.

The best place to go in Ames for used kids clothing, shoes, bedding, room decor, books and toys. Little ones are only in things for such a little while, why pay full price when you can get gently used and clean items for a fraction of the price. Love this store
