I love once upon a child! Every time I go in the store, the staff is friendly and helpful. The fenced in play area is a God-Send. My daughter plays while I shop. I love the dresses and shoes as the prices are usually less than 7 dollars each for fancy things. The absolute best part of the whole store is that off season clothing is half priced! It is currently the end of January so I went and bought some winter things and my daughter will still be able to wear them for months. I havn't tried selling anything yet, but I plan to try it very soon. I don't expect a lot of money for my used things. I understand the store will need to make a profit and will not sell everything they purchase.

Today was my first experience in the store. The workers did seem busy but came right over to me when I entered asking if I needed help with anything. I was really impressed with how everything was organized by size rather than having to search at say Stuff. Everything summer related was 50% off and even those items that were not summer were really cheap for name brands. I ended up getting an Old Navy Denim Jacket and a Gap denim Onesie for a total of $7! You can even get a frequent shopper/consignor card and once you spend X amount of $ you receive 15% off of your next purchase! I will be going here for years to come!

So i heard of this store and thought hey I have 2 daughters and they have lots of clothes that dont fit them so I call the woman on the phone was very hard to understand. I went in with a large tote of clothes, winter clothes all less than 2 years old most only worn a few time many with tage all name brands, guess, gap,childrens place, justice etc. the service was horrible the store smelled I dropped off the clothing and just glanced around the store for a minute or 2 I could not believe anyone would buy the clothes they sell faded stretched out faded glory brand looked like trash to me. I picked up one pair of jeans 12.00 yea that much for used jeans you can go to old navy and get new ones for less than that really not worth it. I left recieved a call an hour and half later went back and was offered 15.00 for 2 pairs of guess jeans ( 1 pair still have 57.00 tag on) 3, shirts from justice and a sweater from gymboree all of which were in excellent condition no stains wrinkles tears or anything. did not seem right to me so i declined and took all of my belongings ( not sure if they took anything out cause you have to leave box for them to look at, at their lesiure) I will put these clothes out in my annual garage sale and donate what doesnt sell cause i honestly would rather give them to people who need them rather than a buisness who rips off both buyers and sellers...... I say run away avoid at all costs you catch the sales and can buy better stuff brand new at the same cost ......

Do not waste your time. I took in some excellent condition items and some still with the tags on them and they wanted to give me $25.00. The girl was very rude there. You are better off shopping at stores (TCP, Gymboree,etc) when they have sales. I took a look at the clothes they are selling and they were all faded and crappy looking. I can't believe someone would actually buy stuff there. I took my bag back home and will sell the stuff at my annual garage sale. Never again will I go there!

This is great place to shop if you are looking for the nicer brands of kids clothes at good prices. They have clothes, accessories and much more for kids of all ages. I haven't taken anything to consign there, so am not sure how that is. The staff has seemed very busy when I have been in, and not really friendly, still it is worth it to go in for their merchandise.
