Each Once Upon A Child location is individually owned and operated by moms and dads like you, who understand money doesn't grow on trees.
Porscha and Steve Shideler decided to open a location in Colorado Springs when Porscha was pregnant with their daughter, Kailani. While shopping for their daughter, Steve and Porscha saw the need in the community for a store that had great prices and selections for used kids items. This idea grew on them and they started looking into Once Upon A Child. When Porscha stepped into one for the first time, she knew that she had to bring a Once Upon a Child to Colorado Springs.
Steve was born and raised in Colorado and graduated from University of Colorado with a Business Finance degree. Porscha grew up in Hawaii but moved to Colorado Springs in 1994, she has worked in retail and managing small businesses. They have 3 children, 2 nieces and both parents here in the Springs.
