I can't believe they won't accept some of the used items I brought in yet while I browsed at their items some were literally stained badly and very noticeable yet my newly used child shirts were denied for such reason. Its crazy.. And the staff is incredibly rude at this location and bandera location! Overpriced, bad atmosphere, and contradicting (saying they don't buy items that are too used yet I saw a bunch of stained shirts for sale)..



It was a horrible experience they are so picky with the clothes that they want to buy even if their brand new they buy for so cheap I hate this place all the workers are rude at both locations they don't even greet you and it's dirty. I don't recommend this place to no one ugh.

What a rip-off!!!

We tried selling a bunch of clothes and were rejected on nearly 95%; We were told that they didn't accept items with any signs of wear, which is impossible, especially for a re-sale shop. We were also told that the styles were 'out-of-date', despite being bought only last year. In the end, and for the last time we'll set foot in that place - we were given $9.00 for 8 items, that had a retail value of about $90.00.

...and the so-called 'play area' mentioned in their ad is a 3'x3' box that's filled with dirty toys.

Good Place to recycle kids clothes

I'm all about reduce-reuse-and-recycle. Where can i take these out-grown kids clothes? They took some, but I spent more than my credit on ""new"" old stuff.

The staff seemed annoyed that I was bringing more stuff, and they rejected most of it. I had already sorted out the worn out and stained stuff, but they said a lot of it was rejected because of stains. I took in 4 large bags, and they took only 3 things. Oh, well, at least I tried.

Kids shoes were the best deal.


I love this store! Always go t...

I love this store! Always go there and sell and buy stuff with what I sold! Only negative thing I would say is that they need to stay open until at least 9 on the weekends.



All the items I looked at today were too high!! I have been to several resale stores and they are very overpriced...Many items that I was interested in were OUT OF MY REACH and I could not get anyone to help me with I left. Thanks for saving me some money.


Nothing Special

This is a big store with a lot of stuff. Unfortunately most of it was not very nice. I spent about 30 minutes looking through the racks for my two kids and found only one thing that I kind of liked. The rest of the stuff was either faded, fuzzy or just looked old. The pricing seemed a little high for the quality of the product as well. I really felt like I wasted my time. I will probably try them again sometime and hope the experience is better.


Great Store Great Selection!

By far the nicest resale shop in San Antonio! The store is always clean, employees are friendly, and the prices are awesome!!! You can tell by looking at the selection and they only choose the very best pieces of clothing because it looks impecable. A+++ Store!!!


Never been an experience of mine

I have been a customer there for over a year now and I have never seen or heard anyone being rude at Once Upon A Child. They are always the nicest and most helpful group of employees and always entertain my kids so I can shop. Maybe they were having a sale (when they don't accept buys) or something else happened. Not sure but I have never had a bad experience there. Awesome stuff at awesome prices. Great store! I will definitely shop there before anywhere else.


Love it

I love it and I have been going to sweet repeats and kids junction for alittle over a year and Once upon a child is by far my favorite. I have sold and bought there and although I feel I could have gotten more for what I brought in it was more than I would have normally got by donating or giving away. There store is clean and the clothes are easy to go through plus they have a good selection. The reason I like them the most is because the prices on clothes are more reasonable than the other stores. I think the toys are alittle high but I feel that way about all the stores. If I can go to walmart and target and buy a outfit bran new for the same price these resale shops are selling them for then there is a problem and I feel that way alot at sweet repeats and kids junction.

I go to the one off Thousand oaks and love it!
