Sprout SwapTo kick off this exciting event, Sprout Soup will open an hour early at 9am on Saturday. EVERYONE is welcome to come and shop during the swap days. You don’t need to register to shop and you don’t need to bring anything! Just come on in and pick up some great deals.

The August dates are our shopping-only days. Registration and drop off for items to be sold in the Swap happens the month before our Swap and ended on July 30th. If you’d like to be involved in the February 2012 Swap, make sure to check in with us in January.

Our Swap shopping days are usually a little bit crazy, but we guarantee you will find a deal and have some fun! We do expect to have a line waiting outside our door on Saturday morning, so get here early for best selection!

On Sunday, August 14 everything still left in the Swap is discounted. So if you can’t make it in on Saturday, rest assured there will be bigger and better deals! Please note that all items are out for sale on Saturday, we don’t “hold back” any inventory for Sunday.

Swap Opening Early for Baby Carriers!
This, our 6th Sprout Swap, has the largest number of good-quality baby slings and carriers of any Swap we have held to date.

Due to the nature of baby carriers, we realize that it’s often not something you can decide on in a weekend, so we are bringing out the carriers on Tuesday, August 9 so you will have a few days to look them over, try them out and decide if there is one you would like to purchase.

All other Swap items will be available August 13 at 9am as previously planned.

Activities are FREE unless otherwise noted.

Baby Carrier Rental Program

Baby carriers are an indispensable part of every family’s parenting toolbox, but it can be overwhelming and difficult to figure out which carrier is best for your family. There are many options with many price points and sometimes just trying them on in the store isn’t enough to make a decision. This is where our Rental Program comes in! Simply call Sprout Soup and set up an appointment. Once you have narrowed down your options we will set you up with a two week trial of two to four different carriers. The cost of this service is only $5, plus a $10 per carrier charge that is able to be redeemed towards the purchase of a new carrier when you are ready.

Take advantage of this helpful program, even multiple times, so you are able to make the best possible choice for you and your baby


Thank you for your support!Noah and Alissa DeRouchie
