We r open
Dear Valued Customers-

We are thrilled that IRMA is officially gone and life is slowly beginning to resume to normal. Our store did well with the storm however between staff evacuating and electric being down for several days, our operations were stalled. We did open for sales on Wednesday with a limited staff and CASH ONLY transactions at modified hours due to no internet, phones and credit card machines. We had to put buying on hold for a while.

This storm not only affected us because of closing our doors since Thursday of last week, but also the days leading up as everyone was preparing their homes with basic necessities. We experienced much slower days than usual prior to closing last Thursday but still kept our doors open allowing our staff to continue accruing hours so they could continue earning their paychecks. Being a small Mom & Pop business, this has really devastated our September sales with the loss of several business days AND painfully slow days leading up to closing last week.

Because of this, we have decided to start buying again but we will NOT be paying cash or checks for the next several days (until further notice) for your buys. We also will be restricting buys to two Totes a day, per person to help keep Buy wait tmies to a minimum. We will only buy from customers who wish to trade toward their purchases or keep a store credit for future use. Don't forget that when you sell merchandise for store credit you get up to 10% more on your offer and trade the same day toward your purchase, you also get a sales tax credit. This means double savings!!

As always, thank you for your loyalty and patronage and supporting our small businesses.
We apologize for the inconvenience and
thank you for your understanding.
Please, stay safe and know that we hold you,
your family and loved ones all in our thoughts and prayers!
To all the first responders, safety personnel, utility workers, government workers 
and medical personnel who have tirelessly worked to get our lives back to normal,
we thank you with all of our hearts.
Bill & Dana Drake and the entire team at

You have brought in some beautiful items over the past few years and we are happy to say that we are still buying the best quality items based on brand, demand and condition. We are currently buying all seasons that are in like-new to new condition.

Our goal is to always provide a convient place for moms to buy and sell their gently used kids stuff. Over the years we have tested all areas of purchasing to see what best fits the over all needs of our community. After a careful review of our current inventory levels and customer demands, we have decided to streamline our gently used equipment purchasing to the items of greatest demand. We regret that in order to meet these demands fianancially, we will have to discontinue the purchasing of many baby care items.
By doing this, we will be able to purchase more product in areas that there is a greater need.

Safety Items

We also choose not to purchase car seats at our location.
Buying a used car seat that has an unknown history is potentially life threatening to a child.
It may have been recalled, in an accident or just cared for improperly.
You never know and although you could save a few buys (or make a few bucks),
it is not worth the unltimate safety of any child.

As always, thank you for your business.


Once Uon a Child Altamonte Springs runs all recall searched thru the Consumer Product Safety Commission search engin. If anything is under current recall, it is there. For this reason, we ask that all items you wish to sell must in no older than 2012, have all manufacturer labels till attached and any modle numbers on equipment still visible. Without this information we have to forego making any sort of offer for the safety of our customers.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is an independent federal regulatory agency that was created in 1972 by Congress in the Consumer Product Safety Act. In that law, Congress directed the Commission to "protect the public against unreasonable risks of injuries and deaths associated with consumer products."

The CPSC has jurisdiction over thousands of types of consumer products, from coffee makers to toys to lawn mowers. Some types of products, however, are covered by other federal agencies. For example, cars, trucks and motorcycles are covered by the Department of Transportation; food, drugs and cosmetics are covered by the Food and Drug Administration; and alcohol, tobacco and firearms are within the jurisdiction of the Department of the Treasury.

What THEY Do

The CPSC works to reduce the risk of injuries and deaths from consumer products by:

  • developing voluntary standards with industry
  • issuing and enforcing mandatory standards; banning consumer products if no standard would adequately protect the public
  • obtaining the recall of products and arranging for their repair, replacement or a refund
  • conducting research on potential product hazards
  • informing and educating consumers through the media, state and local governments, private organizations, and by responding to consumer inquiries.

How THEY Can Help

If you've had a safety problem with a consumer product, here's how to get in touch with the CPSC:

  • To report an unsafe consumer product to CPSC online, visit www.SaferProducts.gov, or call CPSC's toll-free Hotline at (800) 638-2772, or (301) 595-7054 for the hearing and speech impaired.
  • See a list of free CPSC safety guides. Print out safety guides on your printer. Many can be ordered. To order copies of safety guides, send an email to info@cpsc.gov or call CPSC's Hotline at (800) 638-2772.
  • Visit CPSC's Information Centers for product safety information.
  • For questions related to consumer product safety, email CPSC at info@cpsc.gov or write to us at U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, 4330 East West Highway, Bethesda, MD 20814
