Kids look so cute in stylish outfits, but who wants to pay high-end prices when their clothes are outgrown so quickly? Once Upon A Child is the perfect solution. We have the latest in new and gently used name brand boys and girls clothes, toys, books, baby gear and furniture just right for fast-growing babies, toddlers and youth.

Simply gather up your gently used baby gear and kids clothes and bring them in. We are always looking to buy designer clothing, pack n plays, toddler beds, changing tables, strollers, highchairs, and of course toys! Once Upon A Child pays CA$H on the spot for all
items accepted.  


We're Available to Purchase Gently Used Items:

  7days a week:  From when we open until 1 hr before closing. 

No Appointment necessary. We operate on a first come, first serve basis.

Within 3 hours to closing time, it's a good idea to call (409)-347-7926 and check how busy we are with buys before visiting.

Buy Counter Instructions & Helpful Tips:
 *All Clothing must be Freshly WashedLaid Flat & Neatly Organized in plastic storage bins, containers, laundry baskets or totes (storage containers will be returned to you once buy transaction is complete). Unfortunately we are not accepting items in plastic bags due to the fact that they do rip easy and your items can get lost in our store!   Please place 2 piece outfits together (do not pin them).

*Clothes must be Current in Style (within the last 3 years) and free of stains, rips, pilling, fading, excessive wear, odors and any alterations from original style.

*We prefer Brand Name Clothing like Abercrombie, GAP, Gymboree, Old Navy, Osh Kosh, Ralph Lauren, and Tommy Hilfiger, and will accept Target and Walmart store brands if in perfect condition!

*We accept Shoes as long as they are clean and have no wear in the heels, toes or scuff marks. 

*Presentation is everything. We are more likely to purchase your items if they are clean and organized. It will also save you time since we will be able to process your items more quickly.

*We buy FurnitureEquipment and Toys which are clean, in very good to excellent shape, include all parts, and that meet safety standards. Recalls are checked Daily.


 *Gently used large items (furniture, swings, strollers, exersaucers, walkers, etc.) being sold to OUAC will be priced according to current market value (i.e. Walmart, Target or similar) and not the original purchase price.


*Unfortunately at this time we don't purchase pre-owned cribs (purchased prior to 6/28/11), car seats, used travel systems, diaper genies, used bedding, socks, bottles, rattles, dishes, wall art, picture frames, backpacks, stuffed animals, or baby formula
