I sell one tub filled with clothes, shoes etc. and the money they give me for it buys my daughters whole wardrobe for the season. Kids grow too fast to pay full price in a different store. I love the clearance section as well! We save so much money shopping here!

I hardly ever purchase clothes from retail stores. As you can see, my daughter is gorgeous and Once Upon a Child helps her to shine like a million bucks! We even buy all her fancy church dresses there! I'm definitely a O.U.A.C. mom for life!

When it comes to dressing Elijah for church I try my best to stay away from the toddler matching suits. Personally, I feel they lack character and originality. I'm not saying that I'd never purchase them, I just prefer the uniqueness of putting different patterns and colors together. Pieces from today's look are from Once Upon A Child. One of our favorite places to find gently used clothing, shoes, and accessories for an unbeatable price.

I once used to shop only name brand stores for my little one. Well eventually my family started to grow and there was no way I could keep up with 4 kids in all designer clothes. I work construction and noticed my job was building this store so I just had to check it out! Not only have I bought but I have also sold and since then I hardly EVER buy at full price for name brand clothing! I am obsessed with Once Upon a Child!

My favorite type of department stores are thrift stores. But the down see to their shopping is having to weed through all the garbage to find the hidden treasures! With Once Upon A Child, I don't have to do that...it's already been done for me! Every item they sell is in near perfect condition or brand new. As a mother of 6, I know a great deal when I see one, and with this store it's always a guaranteed Great Deal!!!

Every since my granddaughter was born on September 18, 2014, I have only shopped at Once Upon A Child. This entire outfit from head to toe is from this awesome store. I love the 50% off and 70% off sales. The grab bag sale was intense but I loved every minute of it. I am the biggest fan of Once Upon A Child. The value and the quality of the clothing are the reason I shop at this store.

Cole and Caylen this Easter, everything they are wearing, except Caylen's hat, we got at Once Upon A Child. I had such a hard time finding them something that matched for Easter pictures. The staff was very helpful, friendly, and understanding to a mommy that was about to lose her mind, by chasing around a three year old and trying to color coordinate at the same time.

Alyssa from Gastonia, NC

I love absolutely love this store. The employees were very helpful and super friendly. I LOVED their bow selections. The prices are very reasonable and they have a great selection of clothes. Definitely will be returning to this location.

First time ever being in this store on the date of Jan 7th! I love the place! My baby Evan was so interested in the clothes and I couldn't wait to buy some and try them on! The best child store that I could ever buy clothes from!

I found out about Once Upon a Child while I was pregnant. My daughter is now 7 months old and I get all her stuff from there. I never go to theddepartment stores for her clothes or shoes. I was there yesterday and bought her a pair of Toms for only $7.50. And they are like new. I recommend this store to anyone who has a child. Love it.

Natalie from Gastonia, NC

I absolutely love this store! Their prices are awesome & the customer service is excellent! It is a very friendly environment! Their holiday selections are always great!

Rose M. from Vancouver.Washington

Once Upon a Child is the greatest! I found their store by mistake and I'm glad I did. At first I brought in some of my grandchildren's slightly worn clothes they had outgrown. The people were very fair and friendly.As I waited. I began to look around. WOW! They had great items.Now this where I always shop! Great prices-Great clothing...Very Nice People!

I started shopping at Once Upon A Child 7 years ago before my first child was born. And now we continue shopping there with my 4 month old boy. I'm glad there's a store like this because 2 kids can be very expensive!

Courtney from Tennessee

Liz from Michigan

I love once upon I child. I can't have a conversation about kids clothes without bringing you guys up. Whatever my kids need, you always seem to have it. I make a summer clothes trip and a winter clothes trip and get both my kids their whole wardrobe in one spot... for about a tenth of the price I'd pay anywhere else. Thank you for existing!!!!!!!!!!

Ayden from California


Once Upon a Child always keeps my baby in the trendiest styles

Knox from Missouri

I have been shopping at this store since my son was born. It was great to find items that I needed at such a fair price. I quickly began reselling old clothes to buy new ones. This is a great way to same money and still wear nice clothes on your children. Thanks!!!

Linette D from Massachusetts

As a single mother of three I am on a budget but this store is one place where I dont have to worry about breaking the bank everytime I go in. I do my shopping by seasons and always walk out of there with enough clothes for all three of them. Wish there was one closer to me but its worth the drive for me. Staff is great even when the kids are playing by the toy section as I browse the isles. Love the store and the staff.

Deivanai from Enfield,CT

Bonita from Tampa, FL


My kids and I recently visited the Tampa location on Kennedy Blvd. I was impressed with the customer service friendly staff and the quality of the items in the store. My kids had the opportunity to take pictures with the Easter bunny and it truly made their day! I want to thank the staff for making this visit and unforgettable experience for us. My three old cant wait to go back and see the Easter Bunny again! Kudos ladies....

Mary from WI

I would like to thank Brookfield, WI staff and management for an excellent job. I love once upon a child! The customer service and professionalism is above and beyond. Thank you once upon a child. I sold clothes to your business and put money in my pocket. And speaking from a military family, Thank you for taking care of the American people.

AUBREY from texas


I went in to this store for the very first time and was impressed from all the selections I had to choose from. I am so glad I found it and will be doing my shopping there for my daughter from now on.

Lauren from Indiana

Mary from Minnesota


Liberty Autumn is my fifth child. She is an adorable little grower. She was such a little lady when she was born by the time my daughter was 6 months she was wearing 12 month clothing. Clothing is super expensive every month we needed and bigger and cuter outfits. We start our search for bigger clothes at Once upon a Child. The staff helps me every month find Miss Libby's size with ease and we buy the whole section most of the time. I also have a son who is 3. He is an amazing little boy. I always find the jeans with the built in little belts and the cutest shorts outfits. I am also the proud grandparent of twin 4 year old. This store is awesome for all of the ages of my children. I love our store in Maplewood.


I was recently told about this place by my friend and decided to go check this place. I am expecting my daughter in July 2014 and I absolutely loved this shop. It's amazing cheap as it's a second hand store. And majority of the baby clothes are in excellent condition, as good as new. The toys are all in working condition. I think this is a great store as babies out grow their clothes in a few months and once my daughter outgrows.. I will definitely return back for the next set of clothes. Kudos to the store.

Sharon from KY

I have saved tons of money while shopping at Once Upon A Child. I love the dollar sales. I could not be happier with this store.

tiffany from spokane WA

When I found out I was pregnant I was a bit worried if I would be able to afford all of the things my daughter needed being a single parent. Then my sister brought me into once upon a child and I was so excited that I could get such great stuff at a reasonable price! Within the first 4 time I went into the store I had all the clothes I needed up until 6 months! I also found a great stroller there! Now I go in about once a week! I just can't resist the great deals!

Maggie from Illinois

I love to buy my reborns cheap but great things here!

Monica from TX


Love this store! My baby boy is only a month old and already is wearing 3 month clothing! So when I found out about this store I had to start shopping here because of how fast my baby is growing!

Corinne from florida


I brought in my gently used maternity clothes, and with the money i received i was able to by my baby girl a very adorable outfit.

Amanda from Minnesota


I buy and sell at Once Upon a Child ALL THE TIME. I love this place and the people are so nice!

Ashley from Louisiana

Never again will a pricey department store get my money! Thank You Once Upon a Child! I bought 8 whole outfits for 35 bucks! You can't beat that!

Iliana from Michigan


We love this place. Baby grows so quick, comes in very handy!

Valerie from West Virginia


Our Daughter is very short so even tho she is one age doesn't mean that she is going to fit into everything for that size. I have been able to get her clothes that don't cost an arm and leg for her. I have already gotten her her Christmas Dress and it is only February.

Marielle from mic


We Love this Store, They have every baby need for kids..

Lacey from MI

We went into the Saginaw location and it was amazing!! Lots of choices to choose from for my daughter and good prices. For being a gently used store the clothes looked brand new and some even had tags still on them!!!
