Sell to Us!

Kids look so great in stylish outfits, but who wants to pay high-end prices when clothes are outgrown so quickly? Once Upon A Child offers the perfect solution: the latest in gently used brand name clothes, shoes, toys, books, equipment, and furniture…just right for fast-growing babies, toddlers and youth.

Selling How To's:

1) Bring items lying flat in a hard sided container with a lid - no hangers or bags will be accepted. 

2) Freshly laundered please.

3) Toys and Baby Gear - all pieces and parts, free of battery corrosion and no stains. 

4) Cribs - manufactured after June 2011, must be assembled at the store.

5) Items we cannot purchase:  car seats, bicycle helmets, undergarments and breast pumps

Save yourself the hassle of garage sales and online listings when you can swing into the nation’s leading buyer and seller of name brand, gently used kids’ stuff. Simply gather up your kids’ gently used stuff including: clothing, shoes, playards, changing tables, strollers, highchairs and toys and bring them to Once Upon A Child for payment on-the-spot for all items accepted.

Because we are buying gently used items from our customers all day, every day, our inventory frequently changes, so shop often!
