Each Once Upon A Child location is individually owned and operated by moms and dads like you, who understand money doesn’t grow on trees. As a mom of 3 girls, I wanted to be a part of a business that allowed parents to purchase children's items at an affordable price as well as buy back those items no longer needed. I have owned the Plato's Closet Tyler location (sister store to Once Upon a Child) since 2011. Since we opened, we have heard the community of Tyler ask time and time again if we have a sister store that buys and sells children's items. We heard the need and decided it was time to offer both options. We have located both stores side-by-side for convenience, in the Village at Cumberland Park.
Our customers want quality children’s clothing and we’re excited that we can offer discounts up to 70% off of original retail prices. We strive to offer a fun and convenient way to sell your gently used items. Whether you’re buying or selling, we would love to help you find what you’re looking for. We offer payment on-the-spot for items we select that meet current style, safety and condition standards. We maintain high merchandise standards by thoroughly inspecting all toys and equipment for any safety recalls.
