children's clothing


Children’s clothing, and particularly baby clothes fall into three categories, more or less.  There is a chain of massive all-things-baby superstores called Brendon, one of which is in Budapest, on the outskirts, by the Gyöngyösi utca Metro stop on the Blue Metro, on Vaci ut (NOTE, Vaci út is NOT Vaci utca; it is the continuation of another major street, Bajscy Zsilinszky út).  The store is actually in a kind of strip mall behind Vaci, so it’s relatively hard to find.  The website is in Hungarian but gives a small map:

It has an excellent selection of everything from furniture to toys to clothing.

The second category is new clothes in shops and boutiques, and there is a string of baby and maternity shops across the street from the maternity hospital on Baross utca, between Kalvin ter and Jozsef krt.  And there are lots of chain shops, including Gaps in the malls and Marks & Spencer on Vaci utca (and a newly-opened H&M on Vörösmarty ter; one of the only places open on Sunday in downtown Budapest).

Third, there are second-hand shops scattered throughout the city.  Some of the ones that Jeanne has uncovered include: On So utca, at the end of Vaci utca, next to the Post Office on the corner, there’s a used clothing shop with great selection of baby/children’s clothes.  Nearby on Raday utca, just past the Pink Cadillac Pizza restaurant, beyond the Gelati place nearby, on the same side of the street, there’s a tiny used-baby-clothes shop. Further out on Raday, on the far side of Bákats ter, almost all the way to the back of the square, there’s a tiny little baby and children’s second-hand shop.  And there are several upscale used clothing shops (as well as a range of trendy fashion shops) on Arany Janos utca between Nador utca and the körut.  On Becsi utca (which is the street Petoöfi utca turns into at Szervita ter) there is a clothing shop called Humanic, just across from the Kempinski Corvinus Hotel.  On the same side of Becsi, across from the Humanic, there’s a second-hand clothing shop with a large selection of baby/children’s clothes.


Finding clothing for kids has been a challenge for us in Budapest, but it's slowly falling into place.  There are department stores of course, but the more interesting things come from smaller boutiques and second hand stores...
