Got Gear? 

As the weather warms up, parents are getting ready for a new season of outdoor adventure. Get some help from Burlington's Outdoor Gear Exchange, which moves in May to a larger location in the former Old Navy storefront on Church Street in Burlington. The new OGE will house an expanded selection of children's apparel and footwear. Buyer Audrey Ells-Payne says the digs will give the store more room to breathe. The extra space will likely be appreciated by parents who shop with kids, diaper bags and strollers in tow. The expansion will mean a wider variety of clothing as well as a deeper selection of staples such as boots, outerwear, and kid carriers. OGE offers 65 percent cash back and 75 percent store credit for children's consignment items — a great idea for kids who grow quicker than weeds, and for parents looking to go forth in style without breaking the bank.

outdoor gear exchange: 152 Cherry Street, Burlington; the move to the new location and expanded children's section takes place in May. Info, 888-547-4327,
