Your Central & East Orlando, FL Once Upon A Child Stores

hurricane IRMA & OUAC

Dear Valued Customers-
We are thrilled she's gone and life is slowly beginning to resume to normal. Our stores did well with the storm however between staff evacuating we needed an extra time at both of our stores to recover due to being short staffed for a multitude of reasons whether lack of child care or employees who evacuated. We also had partial power at our E Colonial location which further delayed our reopening.
This storm not only affected us because of closing our doors since Friday before the storm 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 Friday 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 will NOT be paying cash or checks for the next several days (until further notice) for your buys. We will only buy from customers who wish to trade toward their purchases or keep a store credit for future use.
As always, thank you for your loyalty and patronage and supporting our small businesses. We look forward to seeing you over the next several days.
Yours truly-
Monica and Demetri Vassiliadis & the OUAC E Colonial & S Alafaya  Teams

We've also kicked off our in-season clearance at our stores. Marked apparel throughout the store is 40% beginning today! Look for yellow stickers throughout the store.

We offer a fun and convenient way to pass on your children's items they no longer can wear or need as well as offer a large selection of children's items they can grow into.

UPDATED Policy Effective Wednesday, August 30th, 2017

Effective Wednesday, August 30th, 2017 in effort to better serve you, we are asking our customers to limit the amount of apparel bins to two * bins/totes/boxes at a time. (*18 gallon bin size) We are looking for apparel that was purchased new 2 years or newer (that's what sells best for us) and we're always super selective in newborn & infant apparel.

Our goal is to provide a faster and more convenient way to sell to us and shop our stores. Therefore, by limiting to smaller quantities we are able to get your quote back much quicker while also allowing you some time to shop.

During this time, we will always take in unlimited amounts of shoes, equipment, toys, & books. Please refer to our website for additional details and selling tips.

As always, all quotes must be picked up by close the same business day for cash or check payment.
