They have lots of good goodies, gently used items like used books and movies, rockers and a lot more. I really liked the owner, she was very helpful and very nice! I will be visiting here again, very soon!

The store is nicely organized with the large space that they have plus the rows are wide enough to push a stroller thru since i never shop alone.

I love this store. I always look forward to visiting relatives so we can come check out this store and stock up. I have had great luck finding high quality Halloween costumes for $8 dollars, warm down winter coats for around $12 and everyday clothes for $4 to $6. Their clothes are always clean, in like new condition and the store is easy to navigate

Besides the fun experience of shopping here, the used selection is pretty good not huge but good and reasonably priced. The clothes were all in good used condition. They are so friendly and personable, they offer complimentary gift wrap that is always so cute looking, and they have a variety of things to offer. I love that we can splurge on things and also find great deals on used clothing as well.

What an amazing find. The owner is incredibly nice and takes her time to help you find what you are looking for. Be prepared to spend some time in here, it's a treasure hunt! The prices were really fair and it was not over priced.. I was really happy that my nephews loved the items!!

I brought my clothes in, and the owner?manager? insisted that she get the hand cart to help me with my second bin, I thought that was an unusually nice gesture. I got 1.50 per item which is the usual. They would not let me see how much they paid per item, which leads me to believe they paid really low for some of my items. I started to look around the store and one of the workers came up to me and said that for future selling I had to bring in only in season items, above 24months. I didn't like that, I thought it was presumptious that I would bring in any more items, when I had no intention to. I only sell there once a year and it's not my first choice destination. Okay but I really do think they have good deals. A slide for $15, an old navy jacket for 7.50, clean stuff, and I appreciate how they always have a $1 rack for the bargain hunters. I appreciate how they buy lots of clothing so I great place to get rid of a lot, quick.

Once Upon A Child in Salem is not only good for clothing but it's a great toy store. Whenever I have to go to a kids birthday party or baby shower I go there because they have great prices and a good selection. I just never thought of this place as a good toy store until now!

Once Upon a Child really has the cutest selection of children's clothes available in Salem. Their store is wonderful and has plenty for the kids to do while I shop. Their clothes are wonderful and they always have something new and great to give to your children. Please go see for yourself.

I never find anything I can use. I took a whole tub of brand name clothing and they wanted to give me less than 50 cents for each piece, I would do better having a garage sale

i like that they sell name brand clothes at a decent price. But they need to work on their customer service skills. The employees are not the friendliest and seem like you are bothering them when asking a question. I like shopping there for the clothes but dread the sales clerks. And when consigning clothes...they are not very nice and won't give you a price for each item. I hate that. It would be nice if they would tell you what each item would get. So, I don't know. If you want nice clothes, it would be a great place to go. But do expect the best customer service you've ever had.

I love going to Once Upon A Child to purchase clothing for my daughter. I would never be able to afford the name brand items if I purchased them new. You can go to Once Upon A Child, pick up some Like New brand name items for a small fraction of the cost.

Great place, great prices and good selection!

PROS: Price, Selection
CONS: Timing is everything.

I have visited many kids resale shops and this is one of the better ones. They have a large selection of clothing and kids gear at decent prices. They usually have a sale rack with $1.00 items which work fine for play clothing.

While the prices are decent there are other stores with clothing in better shape. I noticed the toys here tend to be well used and at times missing parts (i.e. I would more expect to find them at goodwill at a lower price.) Most of the actual gear (strollers, cribs, swings,etc.) seem to be in pretty good shape, but are a little pricey.

The staff is not very friendly nor helpful, but they do take items on a walk-in basis and give cash instead of credit. I usually take my son's outgrown clothing here because of that policy.

PROS: Wide selection, cash for resale itmes
CONS: no service, lots of the toys are junk

It's a large store full of used kid clothing and gear (toys, clothing by the truckload, baby gear, even maternity wear). Sometimes you can find something really great, especially if you go often enough to sort through the new inventory they constantly take in. They have lots of cheap items that you wouldn't want to spend a lot on anyway, like blanket sleepers and jeans, for your kids who are going to just wear the stuff out. BUT, bad customer service. The employees act as if they'd rather not be there, they can be unfriendly and unhelpful. AND, when you bring your own items to sell, they can be picky. They won't give you a price for your individual consignment items. Instead, they explain how they don't know what the prices are because they enter everything into the computer and "it" spits out a total price. This is simply something the workers have been told to say so you don't ever get to know what percentage they mark things up (like other consignment shops which generally give you 50% of whatever they make). On the plus side, you can get your money right away instead of waiting for the item to actually sell. So overall, I recommend this as a good place to get rid of your used kid stuff, and to find some things for your own use.

I have had mixed experiences with this business. I have found very reasonable deals on the purchasing end, but have been disappointed when trying to sell them clothing. They did not seem to want anything but major name brand items, no matter how nice (or even brand new) the other, lesser known brands were that I had.

I love Once Upon a Child because of the great used items they carry at affordable prices. I hate Once Upon a Child because of the awful customer service they gave me while I was buying a $80 toddler bed from them. They didn't even offer to assist me to take the bed to my car when I was pregnant. This store is doing great on resale items and needs to do a lot better on customer service!

Once Upon a Child is a great store for used children's clothing. I have never consigned through them, as I usually end up giving our unwanted/un-needed items to friends or family who need, but we have visited their store a number of times and picked up some good clothes and good deals! We will definitely visit again in the near future!

I would not sell them items in the future, but they have a great selection if you're looking to buy. I turned in a bouncy seat in excellent condition and received only a small fraction of what I paid for the item. Next time, I'll see it myself. They do have a great selection of used toys, clothing, and misc items, but you have to really pick through it to find good deals.

PROS: Selection
CONS: Prices paid for consignment items

You can find tons of great deals on "gently used" children's clothing, toys, furniture, etc. They have a wide selection of everything. They also buy your "gently used" children's things, if they are in need of the items you have. If they buy your items, they will give you a fair amount and they will pay you with a check right then and there.

Once upon a child consignment shop is a great place to consign clothes. Unlike other consignment shops they buy your clotes outward from you that way you get your money instantly. They can be pretty picky and prefer name brand clothing items but they give you a good amount for your items. Also since they are picky and only take name brand that is what their store is full of if you want to shop there.
