About Us


We are the proud owners of the Once Upon A Child in Ocoee, FL which is in the West Orlando area.  I was a 2nd grade teacher for 7 1/2 years before I decided to open this business.  I always wanted my own business and knew it had to involve children.  After many ideas running through my head, I finally woke up one morning with the idea.  The idea to open a children's resale store came after having my own son Caden.  He had tons of toys and clothing that were still in great condition that needed a home.  I researched many consignment stores and came across a couple franchises.   I fell in love with the Once Upon A Child concept.  I also loved that Once Upon A Child pays same day, unlike consignment stores when you have to wait for the merchandise to sell before the customer makes their money.  My wonderful husband listened to my ideas and said, "Let's do it!" 

I love my job, still get to see children on a daily basis, and love interacting with new moms, grandparents, and families.  I am very fortunate to have a great staff that can run the store while I am away.  Please stop by and visit our store.
