About Us

Sell us your used goods

Welcome to our Once Upon A Child – Fort Wayne website.  We are Daryl & Kathy Hackworth.  We started Once Upon a Child in October 2001, when our youngest child was just turning one.  They sure do grow fast - and that's the reason we exist!

We started our business because we saw a need in the Fort Wayne area for parents to outfit their children - from clothing to equipment - without breaking the budget.  We at Once Upon a Child will provide a fun and convenient way to buy and sell, new and gently used kids stuff focusing on quality, safety, and value.

In these trying times, we believe Once Upon a Child is a Win-Win.  Bring your kids stuff in to sell & get credit for items they've outgrown.  Buy new clothes, equipment & toys at a fraction of retail prices.  We look forward to serving you on your next visit!
