We're Stocking Up

Once Upon A Child plays a part in offering an eco-friendly alternative to buying and selling clothes and accessories.

Buy & Sell Gently Used Kids' Stuff in Lincoln, NE

We are a locally owned franchise.

Don't waste your precious time going to all of the work of a garage sale. Just bring in your gently used kid's stuff! The time you save can be spent with your family!

Our Buying Hours:

Monday-Saturday: 10 am- 7 pm

Sunday: 12 pm- 4 pm

We ask that you launder your clothing items and fold them neatly in an average sized tote or laundry basket. We cannot accept items that are not laundered; if they have been in storage; or if they are wrinkled. We will not accept items in bags or boxes. Our staff must be able to stack and label your containers.  We are unable to buy clothing items that are pinned together or have stickers or tape on them. We ask sellers to remove hangers from items before they bring them in to sell. Limit of 4 totes at a time.

Our staff works very hard to try to prepare a quote for you quickly. We go through items on a first come, first served basis. A staff member will give you a time for when we will be done going through your items, and we ask that you come back within 24 hours of that time. If you cannot make it back within those 24 hours to pick up your items, we will have to discard your items and your containers.

We buy clothing from newborn up to youth size 18. We also buy shoes of all kinds up to youth size 7.

Toys and equipment need to be in clean, working order and have all parts and pieces. When we buy toys and equipment items 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).

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!

Get started on your spring cleaning! We accept all seasons all year! Clothes, books, toys, shoes, and so much more!!

We need TOYS of all kinds!!!
Are you dealing with a case of toy overload? Bring the toys they're no longer playing with to Once Upon a Child for cash on the spot! We ask that toys come in clean, have all their parts and pieces, and follow current safety standards.


Don't forget to grab a Once Upon a Child gift card! It's a perfect gift for kids and parents.
