Kids' Stuff for Less

We buy and sell gently used kids' stuff - all seasons, every day! We pay on the spot for items accepted. No appointment necessary.

Welcome to Once Upon A Child St. Catharines, ON

Attention to all selling customers !

Until further notice our buying hours will be Mon- Fri 930am to 6pm and Sat-Sun open to 5pm. We are condensing our buying hours during this busy back to school season to allow for time to process your items, reduce wait times and restock the selling floor for your shopping needs.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as our staff are working very hard to process all buys quickly. Thank you !!

Save a bundle this fall by shopping at Once Upon a Child!  We've got an unmatched selection of all the brands they love at prices that are up to 70% less than you'll pay at the mall.  Shop for clothing, shoes, outerwear, accessories & more!
