About Us

We love our kids, no doubt about it. What we don't love? ALL. THE. STUFF.

If you've got kids, then you understand how much stuff it takes to raise those little crumbsnatchers from birth to independence. As fellow moms, we are in the war with you - the fight to keep the overflow of stuff to a minimum. And, that's why we created the KangaKids Quality Consignment Expo. With KangaKids, you have an opportunity to turn your stuff into cash in your pocket. You can also shop for high quality, gently used items to keep your kids clothed, occupied, and safe for lots less than buying new - and with far less hassle than garage sales and online buy/sell/trade sites. 

Meet Our Staff

Crystal Brugman
Julie Kirkpatrick

We met at Iowa State, and soon discovered we had a shared knack for organization and bargain shopping. Both of us are life-long Iowans (well, we each had a brief our-of-state stint due to our husband's jobs...), love small businesses, and enjoy the small-town feel of community that we've found in Iowa. And, we think Iowa is a GREAT place to raise our families. Crystal is up to her eyebrows in pink, dresses, and tea parties (with a healthy dose of dirt track racing) with her two daughters, while Julie is in full-on Boy Mom mode.
