Brand Name Gently Used Kids' Clothing at Once Upon A Child Ann Arbor, MI

We hope you enjoy our newly expanded 10,000 square foot store with new automatic doors to make buying & selling to us easier than ever before. Our goal is to always wow you with our excellent customer service and clean, well-organized store. We are proud to offer top quality, name brand clothes, accessories, toys, books, furniture, baby gear & equipment at 70-80% off what you would pay regular retail.  


Our store is located east US23 and Arborland Mall 1/2 mile east of Carpenter. Next door to Enterprise Car Rental.

Kids look so great in stylish outfits, but who wants to pay high-end prices when clothes are outgrown so quickly? Once Upon a Child offers the perfect solution: the latest in new and gently used brand name clothes, toys, books, equipment, and furniture ... just right for fast-growing babies, toddlers, and youths.

We buy items on a first come / first serve basis and try to process everything right away now so you only have to make 1 trip. We are not a consignment shop. We pay on-the-spot for what items we can accept. We concentrate on safety ... by not buying or selling items that have been recalled. We do ask that you freshly launder your items and lay them flat in a tub, tote or laundry basket & that all toys and equipment are clean & have all the working pieces.

We buy all seasons... all the time!  Offering you cash on the spot, or 20% more in store credit, no appointment necessary!  We now accept your items you wish to sell to us during all ours of operation.  Check out the How it Works and Cash for Kids Stuff for more information.
