In addition to children's items (sizes newborn to Size 20), we also buy and sell Maternity apparel at our Fairview Heights store.  By the time the baby comes, we want the parents to get accustomed to saving money with us!

Simply gather up your gently used kids stuff including: clothing, playards, toddler beds, changing tables, strollers highchairs, toys and bring them to Once Upon A Child for $$$ on-the-spot for all items accepted.


Our customers can save money by buying from us and make money by bringing in items for us to buy from you.  When you purchase clothing, furniture, toys, equipment and much more from us, you are paying a fraction of the price as compared to department stores.  We sell top name brands as well as other brands to cater to all of our customers.  All of are used items are gently used, clean and safe.  Remember to shop often as our inventory changes everyday! 



Our philosophy is that we recycle items and we pay you for it.  We purchase our used inventory from our customers because 100% of our store's used inventory comes from our customers like you.  We pay you on the spot for the items that we accept.  IT'S JUST THAT EASY!
