We are a locally owned franchise.
We have been doing business in Lincoln for over 19 years.
We buy all day every day. We buy all day every day. Don't waste your precious time going to all of the work of a garage sale. Just bring in your gently used kid's clothing, shoes, toys, books, movies and baby gear today. The time you save can be spent with your family!
When we buy toys from our customers we look them up for safety recalls (that may or may not happen at garage sales and the big seasonal resale events). We also do that for the equipment items we buy.
Our staff works very hard to try to prepare a quote for you quickly when you are selling to us. When you sell to us you can apply your quoted amount to your purchases and save on sales tax in so doing.
We buy all brands and we carry up to size size 18. We also buy shoes of all kinds up to youth size 4.
We try to make it as easy as possible for you to buy and sell gently used children's products. You just bring in any items your kids have outgrown. Our buyers will inspect your items and prepare a quote for you. You receive payment then. There is no consignment hassle of waiting until the items sell before you get paid.
We ask that you launder your clothing items and fold them neatly (with outfits together) in an average sized (approximately 22 gallons) tote or laundry basket. The process will be faster and we are able to buy more of your items if you do so. We cannot accept items that are not laundered; if they have been in storage; in garbage bags or if they wrinkled. Our staff must be able to lift your containers on and off of our counters. The Buyers must be able to stack and label your containers. We are unable to buy items that are pinned together.
When you arrive a Buyer will label your containers and tell you when your quote will be ready. Save yourself the hassle of consignment stores, garage sales and online listings when you can sell them to Once Upon A Child anytime the store is open.
If you are shopping the same day you are selling to us you can apply your quoted amount toward anything you wish to purchase that day. We call it a trade. You also receive stamps on your customer appreciation card for every 10 dollars you buy or sell. When your card is full of stamps, you receive a 15% discount off of your ENTIRE purchase!
