About Us

about us


We visited our first Once Upon a Child in 1999 in Columbus, OH before even having children and loved the concept. Fast forward 15 years and 3 children growing and outgrowing clothes quickly, we again found a Once Upon a Child store to shop and resell our gently used items. In 2012 we are opening our own Once Upon a Child store. 


We look forward to getting to know people and helping out in the community. Each Once Upon A Child location is individually owned and operated by moms and dads like you, who understand money doesn’t grow on trees. We are are a family owned business with 3 children who are active in sports and school.


Our customers want quality children’s clothing and we’re excited that we can 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’re buying or selling, we would love to help you find what you’re 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 recalls.
