I think once upon a child is a great store. The prices are good and its very organized. I like how they are picky on what they buy because therefore that means good quality clothes on the racks. The staff is not rude they just are picky on what they buy and they arent overly friendly like other stores. They have a job to do and dont have time to talk all day or sit here and shop for you.The people there are hard workers.

You can buy gently used Gap, Limited Too, Abercrombie, Ralph Lauren, Polo etc for half of the price of department stores. It is also very centrally located and an easy in and out with kids in strollers and car seats. Try easy in or out at target or walmart. Clothes are tougher to sell because they are looking for good stuff. Kids love the place and are sad when they have to leave.Lots of toys and equioment. Quit paying mall prices and save some money

I have been a customer at this store for 9 years, and in my experience, it's a better place for buyers than for sellers. And I agree with some of the other folks who posted that the staff isn't very friendly (this has changed over the years ... in 1999, they were great). The last time I sold items there, I found the staff very secretive about what they were buying (they avoid letting you see what they are offering to purchase vs. what they are rejecting). Also, it took a long time, and both times I was there (once to drop off, and once to pick up), I heard another seller say, "I'm not sure you even looked at my stuff!" So depending on where you live, it's a big time commitment to prepare your clothes, drop them off and come back to get the small amount of money they offer for your items. I feel better about donating to charity, and depending on your tax bracket, it's also better financially. That said, there are some good deals to be had on certain clothing items, so I wouldn't write the place off entirely.

I found the staff to be unfriendly and the prices a little high. Better deals can be found at the department stores' sale racks and the merchandise is new! I will be sticking with the sale racks.

This store is great! They have newly remodeled with more merchandise than ever. Where else can you go to sell your kids clothes and pick up almost new name brand gear for less than retail mall prices? The new owners are more than ready to assist and will work tirelessly to take care of the customer

We all know that children out grow many of thier clothes often without wearing some of the outfits or only wearing them a few times. If you are looking to sell or buy clothes that fit into the above catagories then you will love this shop. The used clothes are clean and reasonalbly priced. They also sell a smaller selection of used kid's furniture and accessories. They are a top notch dealer.

The prices here are okay, but you do not get much for reselling. The furniture prices are all right. The staff here leaves much to be deisred as they often seem to busy talking with each other to want to help. I do like the play area for the children. It makes shopping a bit easier. I would shope elsewhere.

For 2nd hand shops this place is great. Also one of the only places that give you money right there for the clothes you bring in. No wait and see if it sells and then we pay you stuff. The prices are good and the people are always helpful and friendly. WIth the way kids grow, who wants to spend money on new when you can get the same things half price or alot less for something slightly used. Go in a look around.

The quality of the merchandise for sale at this store is great. It is nice to go to a resale shop and not have to sort through racks and racks before finding something that is high-quality. The prices are reasonable, especially since most items are in like new condition. The price they pay though for gently used clothing is extremely low. I will continue to shop there but will sell my gently used clothes either on ebay or at garage sales.

PROS: high quality
CONS: they don't pay much for used clothes

They have great clothes,a lot of brand names but their prices are a little high.They also only buy clothes depending on season which makes it hard to sell to them.They have also refused clothing just because they are not a certain brand.Selection is great but I won't shop there much.

the clothing is cute! For once, the displays in a used clothing store has matching outfits. Everything is neat and tidy. However I do not like feeling like I am an intrusion to a sales persons time. I always thought they were paid to help me, not paid to stand around and gossip about their coworkers or boss or a customer who was just in.

Several years ago I purchased some items for my nieces here. However during a recent visit---I thought that items were priced a lot higher than they should be. People that live in the parts of town where the stores are---are not rich. Many of the prices seemed to be only slightly cheaper than buying new. After locating a better store---where prices seem to be more reasonable and staff more cheerful and helpful----I will not waste my time ever returning to any of their locations.

PROS: several locations
CONS: Pricey for used, staff not friendly or helpful

The prices for buying and selling are what I would expect, after all, they are running a business for profit.

However, there's really no reason to be rude to the customers. And they are exceptionally rude, regardless of whether you are there to buy or sell.

Pros: there has been a bargain or two
