Not sure I understand all the negative reviews on here - we love this place and we've bought 99% of our son's clothes here. We have frequently come out of here with a giant bag full of mostly new, high quality clothes for $30 from the clearance rack! The most we ever spent on one item was $9 for an L.L.Bean rain jacket new with tags! Thank you Once Upon a Child!

I called ahead to ask if they had time to look through my kids old cloths. I said 2 bins and I would be there about 11:30. They said sure. I explained I had limited time. I made the near hour drive. I dropped off and was told 1.5 hours. I had to leave at 1 to get to work on time. I explained that. They rudely said first come first serve. I get that but it was so rude. A simply "it's first come first thing but we will try our best" would have gone a long way. I come back at 1:15 after giving them a little extra time and risking being late to work but it's expensive to make the drive. They haven't even started looking. They were looking at stuff that wasn't there when I dropped off my items. They told me 20 minutes. I told them I didn't have the time so I had to load my items back into my car. They said come back soon! Unlikely to happen. I understand that things happen and things take time but the rudeness and the obvious disregard of the FCFS is what drive me to write this review....more

Very annoyed I bring my son's clothes here in good condition they take what they want and offer a dollar or 2 for each item. Today I brought in his clothes most of it brand new one outfit still had a tag of $32 on it they put that and other items in the bin offered me $12 for everything probably $100 worth of clothes yeah no I told the lady the tag was still on one item and so I took it back and they took it off the bill they were offering me $2.15 for an outfit that still had a $32.00 price tag on it, I wonder how much they would of sold it for? I will just start selling my stuff online I would make more money off my son's good condition clothes!!!!! P.s. I was going to buy items but I noticed they didn't take much of mine so I put the items back. ...more

Not worth the effort to sell your children's old clothes here. The wait time is very long (3 hours and I dropped off at the earliest they accept) and be prepared for most of your items to be rejected, regardless of condition and quality. I question their buying standards because I looked through their racks of clothing and was disappointed in the quality compared to their cost.

They offered a minimal amount for the items accepted ($35) which included several pairs of high quality, expensive shoes in great condition. I opted to not take the money and donate all the clothes to a local thrift shop instead. ...more

Most of the clothes you find here are new with tags still on them. Things seem to be a little overpriced but you can find some great deals. And they don't give you much for trading in clothes you're better off donating them.
