Have you ever sold items to Once Upon A Child?

I have a few bins of nice baby clothing, most never been worn, and name brand that I'd like to sell to Once Upon a Child and just wanted to see if anyone else has done that and if it's worth it or how much they give you.

  • I have taken a lot of clothes there. they usually give you store credit, which is fine with me, because I turn around and buy next seasons clothes with it.

  • I sold some to Children's Orchard - it's the same type place. They were quite picky about what they took. They looked everything over under super-bright lights and rejected anything with any stains. They gave me more in store credit than they would have in cash but that's fine - she keeps growing and I keep needing to buy her more clothes.

    I assume Once Upon A Child has similar guidelines. I looked at it this way - I could sell some stuff to them or I could give it all away. While the tax deduction is nice, the money in hand to buy more clothes was nicer.

  • I had a horrible experience there. I took in a bag of clothes, they told me to come back in an hour. All of the clothes had been worn once or twice, and some still had the tags on. I shop at Nordstroms, Sax, boutiques, etc. for my daughters clothes. When I came back, the B***ch hadn't even gone through the bag yet, so told me to come back in another 2 hours. I tried calling them before I drove all the way back over there and no answer. I went back, she still hadn't gone thru them.

  • con't. Went and shopped around for awhile, came back and she threw me an attitude and said they didn't want anything in the bag. There was probably over a thousand dollars worth of designer clothes in the bag. I didn't care for the $, I just wanted to bring the clothes somewhere that someone would purchase and take care of the clothes like I did. I ended up bringing them to Social Services and dropping them off for the foster kids. They deserve the clothes more anyways...

  • Oh, let me correct myself... She was interested in one hat that was purchased at Limited Too for $40.00 that was on the top of the bag. Worn once... She wanted to give me $0.15. HA! Yeah right... DON'T EVEN WASTE YOUR TIME!

  • Depends.. is something better than nothing to you? Is a little cash better than sentimental value or taking space in your garage? I believe it's personal circumstance and preference. I actually just donate everything but that's because I just don't have the patience or take the time to find anywhere that might want them and I usually just want the stuff gone. Easier for me to set them out and let someone come and get em. Try it without expectations and you'll have nothing to lose.
