About Us

about us

Once Upon a Child is individually owned and operated by moms and dads like you, who understand that money doesn't grow on trees.  We opened our doors in February 1999 and have enjoyed being a part of this great community ever since! 

 Our customers want quality children's clothing and we are excited to offer discounts up to 70% off of original retail prices. We strive to offer a fun and convenient way to sell your gently used items. Whether you are buying or selling, we would love to help you find what you are looking for. We offer payment on the spot for items we select that meet current style, safety, and condition standards. We maintain high merchandise standards by thoroughly inspecting all toys and equipment for any safety recall.
