Clothing: please bring in freshly laundered and placed neatly in a hard-sided container (laundry basket, diaper box, etc...). We buy all seasons, all day, every day, sizes preemie-16 girls and 18/20 boys. We select items to purchase that are current styles in next-to-new condition (free from staining, pilling, excessive wearing, etc...). We pay $ on the spot for items we would like to purchase.
Toys and equipment will go through a full safety inspection, including being looked up to be sure they have not been recalled. (it is against the law for us to purchase any recalled products and car seats). All of these items must come with all original parts and pieces, be in gently used condition and work properly.
Mark Dainty (President of Safelutions) and Chris Diaz (Co-Owner of Once Upon A Child: Lakeland, FL)
