Earn and Save When Spring Cleaning With Once Upon A Child Kelowna

It is time for spring cleaning, and what better way to get it done then by making some cash or saving money on some new items for your kids.

The concept of recycled children's clothing is by far the best option for parents these days. As a mother of 3 I have learned the value of hand me downs and clothing sales. I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to work with Once Upon service this week and find out what makes their store so special. In my interview with owner Ann she had many important things that set them apart that I thought you should know.


95% of all their items are previously loved, so when we buy from once upon a child we are helping to recycle kids clothes and keep them out of the landfills. 

Their wonderful buy out program let's you bring in your child's previously loved next to new items and while you shop they will sort through them and decide which they will buy from you. Then when your done shopping you can use that balance to pay for your purchase! 

Kids look so cute in stylish outfits, but who wants to pay high-end prices when their clothes are outgrown so quickly? Once Upon A Child is the perfect solution. We have the latest in new and gently used name brand boys and girls clothes, toys, books, baby gear and furniture just right for fast-growing babies, toddlers and youth, all priced up to 70% less than retail!
Simply gather up your gently used baby gear and kids clothes and bring them in. We are always looking to buy designer clothing, pack n plays, toddler beds, changing tables, strollers, highchairs, and of course toys! Once Upon A Child pays CA$H on the spot for all items accepted.  

We Buy All Seasons, All Day, Everyday!

  • We will consider clothing for newborn to youth size 20 (age 12)
  • All Clothing should be 'next to new' current styles no more than 5 years old
  • Brand labels with sizing must be attached or visible on each piece of clothing
  • All Apparel should be gently used, freshly laundered and in excellent condition.  We will pass on items with spots, stains, tears, too much wear, pet hair and too wrinkled
  • All apparel should be brought in neatly folded in a plaster container or basket (please no garbage or grocery bags)
  • No appointments necessary. We will review your items on a first come, first serve basis




When I went in I brought in some shoes we had no longer fit to take advantage of the buy out program and shopped for my 3 kids. We got 3 new spring jackets, and an outfit for each child as well as a toy for way under $100. Buying just the jackets brand new would have set me back over $150. With the discounts I got for trading in items I paid just over $50!






The layout of this store is by far one of the best second hand layouts I have ever shopped. Clear signage and organization made it super easy to shop for exactly what I needed. With the amazing customer service and the crazy savings I would absolutely call this my new favorite when shopping for kids! Check out the new store in Kelowna!
