Horrible experience with the manager, Sue M. I brought in some baby things 2 times the summer of 2010. Of course, I received way less for them than they were worth. On top of it that, they gave me the prepaid VISA cards and neither time

i would just like to start of by stating that sue mrugala is the worst store owner I could ever imagine!! She does not know how to treat her employees and doesn't know how to run a store. Her demands for clothing are rediculous and her stores are always unsanitary. One time I visited the Burnsville location and saw four of her employees still working at 11:00 pm on a school night!!! Even one time I witnesed Sue not even look through a buy that someone brought in and she passed on everything! I have apsolutely no respect for this women and I hope that one of these day she gets what she deserves

The owners of this store don't know how to treat their employees.They are cheap and only want to line their pockets off the backs of the people who work for them. They have unreasonable requests, and they rip people off on what they pay them for the items brought in. Sue can't make up her mind on anything and stick with it. Don't shop at any of their 4 locations, Roseville, Maplewood, Woodbury, Burnsville. They don't appreciate hard working employees. Instead of rewarding said employees for their hard work and dedication, they make unreasonable demands.

I just went to this location and they turned down everything I brought due to wear and tear. Funny enough the tags are still on half of my items. All of my items are name brand (RL, Childrens place etc) HUGE waste of time! They were awful! I was told another location is wonderful. Will
be trying that out. Do not go here to sell,

On the plus side, this store gets a lot of stuff and prices them right so the turnover is quick - you see new stuff every time you visit. Look things over carefully though - sometimes stains/holes are missed on items for sale.

This store is well organized and clean. The prices are very good and there is always a large collection of toys and name brand clothes to choose from. They will buy your used clothing...great way to recycle and pay less to get new stuff!

If you are looking for baby or kids items; anything from clothes to toys to large equipment, then this is the place to check out. They have a large selection of items and a lot of times you can find a good deal. Sometimes they run clearance on clothes and you can get clothes for a $1. You have to really watch with the prices though cause they could multiple items in the store that are the same but with different prices. Also got to watch with the prices cause sometimes you can find the items at other stores for brand new with the same price or better. So if you are one to watch the prices on items and know how to find a bargain, then this is a good place to shop.

Once Upon A Child in Burnsville is a small cramped store. If you bring your baby there in a stroller, make sure it's a very small umbrella stroller. They have a great selection of clothes, toys and accessories for babies, toddlers and children. The prices are good compared to new/retail prices, but they are not discount prices that you would find on garage sales. If you are looking for something particular, you'll most likely find it there at around 1/2 or less of retail. I bought a used (good condition) exersaucer for $20 (would have been around $80 new). The clothes are usually $3 to $5 per item (shirts, pants, sleepers, etc). They also purchase new or used items for a pretty good price, but they are very particular so be prepared to take items back home that they won't accept. They are not very quick about looking through your items, either (they'll tell you to come back in 2 or more hours).
