Buy Counter Instructions

Clothing must be in good condition, of current style, freshly laundered and neatly organized in a box, bin or laundry baskets. No Plastic Bags, please! 2 piece outfits should be placed together (not pinned). We ask that you get your items to us 1 hour before we close. This will allow us to finish what we've started, before we close.

Toys and equipment items must include all original parts, be clean and in good working condition.

At Once Upon A Child, safety and product quality are always our top priorities. For those reasons there are some items we are unable to purchase: car seats, formula, cribs, recalled items and product's not meeting current Government Safety Standards.

If you have any questions about items we may or may not accept, feel free to give us a call at 916-725-2525.



We carry Baltic Amber teething necklaces,

Wubanub teethers, and bows, bows, bows!
