Lynn Blum was a young mother who dreamed of opening a new kind of resale store for children, a bright, friendly store that welcomed its customers with beautifully displayed, gently used clothing at bargain prices-a store that was worlds away from the usual cramped and untidy thrift store. With the help of her three young boys and her husband, Dennis, she opened Once Upon a Child in 1985 in a tiny 300 square foot store in Perrysburg, Ohio. Just seven years later, Lynn sold her concept for $800,000 to the fastest growing franchising company in the country and watched it mushroom to 240 stores across the U.S. But she wasnt finished. She and Dennis have since launched five other resale concept stores, two of which, Plato's Closet for teens and Clothes Mentor for women, have also been franchised and now total more than 300 additional stores. In telling her remarkable story, Lynn shares the background that led her to resale, the triumphs and challenges that marked her path to success, her flourishing marriage and business partnership with Dennis, and the business philosophy that made her a millionaire and crowned her the Queen of Resale.
