Back to School for Less

We make Back to School fun and affordable at Once Upon A Child - Mesa/Gilbert!

Welcome to Once Upon A Child Gilbert, AZ

We are located in the Gilbert-Gateway Towne Center on the NW corner of Power and Ray right off the Loop 202 freeway!

  Bring in your children's gently used items and get paid on the spot for everything accepted.

We're looking for: denim shorts and jeans, shoes, graphic tees, uniforms, hoodies & jackets, especially in sizes 6 and up!


Kids look so great in stylish outfits, but who wants to pay high-end prices when clothes are out grown so quickly? Once Upon A Child offers the perfect solution: the latest in new and gently used brand name clothes, toys, books, equipment, and furniture... just right for fast-growing babies, toddlers and youths.

We buy items on a first come / first serve basis. We are not a consignment shop. We pay cash on-the-spot for what items we can accept. We concentrate on safety by not buying or selling items that have been recalled.
