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.
The Oceanside location has been open since 1995 (my wife, Betty, and I purchased the store from the previous owners, Herb and Mae, in 2006). We've been helping families in North San Diego County outfit their children and furnish their children's rooms/nurseries for over 20 years. We are proud to have assisted the many military families who live in the vicinity and shop in our store.
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.
