CLOSED - Giveaway #1 - St Louis - Once Upon a Child

Once Upon A Child

Our first giveaway of the day is for Once Upon a Child.

I recently had the chance to visit the Once Upon a Child store in St. Peters, MO and I was impressed with the amount of clothing and equipment in their store.

Once Upon a Child buys and sells gently used clothing, toys and equipment. They carry everything from swimsuits to snowsuits and everything in between. And it's not just clothing. They also buy and sell shoes, furniture, toys, and baby gear. Because they deal in gently used items, their inventory changes daily.

If your baby has outgrown their bouncy seat, take it to Once Upon a Child and sell it to them and then use that money to get some gently used toddler clothes or toys!

It's easy. Here are the 4 steps from the Once Upon a Child website:
1. Bring in your gently used children's clothing, toys and baby equipment.
2. While you check out the great kids stuff in the store, the buyer will review your items.
3. The buyer will select and make an offer on the items that meet current style, safety and condition standards, as well as the store's current stock levels.
4. Once you accept the offer, you’ll be on your way with some extra money, some great new stuff for your kids, or both!

Here is one of the outfits that we picked out for my daughter. Isn't it cute! Here is the breakdown:
Guess Denim Jacket - Retail price - $42.99 Once Upon a Child Price $12
Gymboree shirt - Retail price - $16.99 Once Upon a Child Price $6.50
Tommy Hilfiger Black Cord pants - Retail Price - $39.99 Once Upon a Child Price $8.50
Total Savings - 73% off retail

I also love this outfit:

This adorable fall Gymboree dress retails for $36.95 and was only $8.50 at Once Upon a Child (without the turtleneck). It's in perfect condition.

While I was at Once Upon a Child, I noticed that they carry a lot of new products as well including Melissa and Doug products. (We had to buy one of those for my daughter before we left. We love Melissa and Doug). They also carry some very cute bows and bow holders that you can get to coordinate with your new outfits.

You really have to visit the store to see everything they carry.
