Once Upon A Child




At Once Upon A Child, we offer parents a fun and convenient way to buy and sell gently used kids' stuff, making saving money on children's clothes, toys, furniture and equipment a reality every day. We focus on quality, safety, and value – the same things you feel important for your own families.

Once Upon A Child sells quality kid's items at a fraction of retail. We understand that children are constantly growing and their needs are constantly changing. With prices up to 70% off retail every day, Once Upon A Child gives parents an economical and budget friendly solution without sacrificing the brands and styles your kids love.

Once Upon A Child prides ourselves on being a green resource for parents to recycle their kids like-new items. We buy all day every day in our stores. No appointment is necessary. We buy all seasons all year long. At Once Upon A Child, we put safety first in all aspects of our business. Everything we purchase is reviewed to make sure it is up to current Government Safety Standards and has no recalls. What we buy is based off brand, style, condition, demand, inventory and past experience. Bring in the following items and walk out with cash!

We accept:

  • Clothing: newborn to size 16 (at select locations). This includes costumes, sleepwear and shoes.
  • Furniture: cribs (at select locations), dressers, changing tables, cradles, toddler beds and bassinets.
  • Toys: indoor/outdoor toys, puzzles and books.
