Jane's Exchange, the children's and maternity consignment shop at 191 E. Third St., is back open, now offering curbside pickups here between Avenue A and Avenue B as well as deliveries.
"Customers have emailed and called to see if we have certain items and if we do, we meet them on the curb or mail items to them," said co-owner Eva Dorsey, who first opened the shop in 1993. "On Monday, for example, we mailed out a box with $100 worth of books to Maryland."

Starting on June 1, Jane's Exchange will have their online store up and running, featuring children’s and maternity clothing, books, toys and some equipment. People will be able to order online and given the option for mail delivery, human delivery or curb pickup.
"In addition to our generous customers who have contributed through our GoFundMe and purchased gift cards, we are hoping our online store will help us meet our bills and provide a service to our consignors, customers and community," Dorsey said.
