2loops IRL - July 23, 11am - 2pm

On Saturday July 23, from 11am to 2pm, our kids toy and clothing swap - that became Family Online Store - is returning to Buddings Broadway IN REAL LIFE.

The July donations week was our biggest ever, and we have 100's and 100's of good quality kids' clothes and accessories, all priced between $2 - $5.

Our volunteers have been adding items to our online inventory, but with so much in stock, everyone who joins us IRL will get their first $10 free

Bring a friend... and a phone! BYOB

Our in-person event is still zero-waste, with contactless options, including our online self-checkout system. Collect clothing (bring a bag!) and accessories from around the store, "add to cart", and pay online with a credit card, or with cash or etransfer. 

Register your email for event updates and coupons!

Come for your summer essentials! Bring your pregnant friend! Shopping and swapping with keeps kids clothing in circulation, and our in-person event is a chance to meet the community! 

Like Haisai Treats!

Buddings Mom and 2loops collaborator Hina Yamauchi is from Okinawa, Japan, and brings greetings from there with her Haisai Sweets & Treats! (Haisai means "hello".)

The bakery blends traditional tropical Japanese and modern Vancouver tastes to create bars, cookies, and treats that you can make at home, or enjoy in a cafe. And you can meet Haisai with another $10 off when you attend our event! ;)

Spread the Word!

Recycling clothes and saving money, what's not to love?? If you know families with kids 0 - 6 years, please let them know! Share the event poster with this link.

Join the Community!

2loops partnerships help each other, and we're pleased to present them on our new Family Community Page. Meet Hina and others, and let us know how we can share news about your business. Email us at

We love to hear it!

Coming in September: Big Kids Club Returns

Preparing for kindergarten takes planning, so the Buddings teachers are already getting ready for the exciting September return of our structured play and learning program for Preschoolers - Big Kids Club!

Structured, experiential learning for preschoolers begins with routines, and while summer is the time for following the breeze, sticking to the schedule helps the time pass. Find the details here.

The difference between our summer Big Kids Club, and the September Preschooler Program is in the planning. Developing ideas, and making learning grow is a process, laying a foundation, and building on top. 

Our fall program for preschoolers is just as flexible as Buddings always is, but when you sign up from 1 - 4pm, class is in session, and social, educational learning will be on the syllabus. 

Program and registration details are coming soon, and you can join the Preschool News list by emailing Codie.
