We ask that in order for us to process your order as efficiently as possible and to be able to buy more that you bring your items in a box, tote or any sturdy container other than a bag. 
Bags tend to cause excessive wrinkling and odors that prevent us from buying more. They also tend to rip very easily and we don’t want any of your treasures to get misplaced during the review process. At Once Upon a Child Altamonte Springs we want to be able to purchase to restock our inventory as quickly as possible. We need your gently used kids stuff!

Drake Family

The Altamonte Springs location is proudly owned and operated by Bill & Dana Drake. We were introduced to the Once Upon Child concept in 2009 with the birth of our first blessing Charlotte. Then in 2012 we were blessed with our triplets Abigail (Abi), Lola and Leila making visits to Once Upon a Child almost a weekly occurrence. Looking around our home at all the girlie clothes and the piles of toys, we realized we were able to stock a Once Upon a Child!  It was at that moment we recognized a need in the Altamonte Springs area for families to be able to access high quality, new and gently used kids stuff at affordable prices! After months of prayer and hard work, we opened the doors to our original store location on Montgomery Road in August of 2013.

It has been a wide ride but all the late hours and tireless work has paid off and we now have a BIGG, BRIGHTER, BETTER location! This new location is in the the West Towne Corners on SR 434 between SR 436 and Maitland Blvd next to Petsmart, WinnDixie, TJMAxx, fivebelow and Famous Footwear. We hope you will come and see us real soon!
