Cute for Less

We have everything your child needs....preemie to youth

Welcome to Once Upon A Child Jackson, TN

Buy Counter Instructions & Helpful Tips:

 All Clothing must be Gently used, Next to new, Freshly Washed, Laid Flat & Neatly Organized in a clean container, i.e. plastic storage bins, boxes or laundry baskets (containers will be returned to you). Please place 2 piece outfits together (do not pin them). Items that have animal hair, grass, leaves, dirt etc will be passed on because they are considered not freshly washed.

  No Plastic Bags please!! We are less inclined to purchase wrinkled items. 

We buy 7 Days a Week:  From when we open until 1 hr before closing. 

We are consistently busy and many of our customers travel a distance to get here. To be fair we buy first come, first served. You have 24 hours to pick up any items up that we had to pass on. After those 24 hours your items and containers will be donated to charity. Also any items put on hold have to be picked up within 24 hours or they will be put back into our inventory.  

Clothes must be Current in Style (within the last 3 years) and free of stains, rips, pilling, fading, excessive wear, odors and any alterations from original style.

   We prefer Brand Name Clothing like Abercrombie, GAP, Gymboree, Old Navy, Osh Kosh, Ralph Lauren, Justice. Tommy Hilfiger etc, but will  accept Target, Kmart and Walmart store brands if the clothing items are new with tags attached or in excellent condition.

We accept Shoes:  must be clean, no wear in the heels, toes or  excessive scuff marks.

We buy Equipment and Toys which are clean, in very good to excellent shape, include all parts, and  meet safety standards. Recalls are checked Daily. *Gently used large items (swings, strollers, exersaucers, walkers, etc.) will be priced according to current market value (i.e. or similar) and not the original purchase price.

*Presentation is everything. We are more likely to purchase your items if they are clean and organized. It will also save you time since we will be able to process your items more quickly.
