Our events combine a nearly new sale with an exhibition of local businesses selling goods/services that may appeal to families with young children, or indeed anyone! Our events have included stalls selling cards, gifts, partyware, cupcakes, preschool classes, real nappies, books, massage and homeware.
The nearly new sale presents a wide selection of new and lightly used clothes, toys and equipment covering pregnancy, babyhood and the toddler/preschool years. We have high standards and aim to offer lovely clean, undamaged items at second hand prices.
Obviously our stock at each sale will differ depending on the season and, of course, what donors and sellers want to part with! However, typically you can expect to see the following:
Clothes: A wide selection including tops, trousers, outfits, skirts, dresses, coats, snowsuits, sleepwear, baby sleeping bags, swimwear, babygrows and vests. The majority of our clothing is in the 0-3yr range (our baby clothes start at 'tiny baby' size) although we do stock some clothes for children up to 5 years. Many items are priced between 50p and £2.00.
Toys: Toys, books, puzzles and dvd's for babies, toddlers and the preschool years from recognised brands (e.g. vtech, fisher price, leapfrog, early learning centre) as well as the more unusual or traditional. Everything should be complete and in full working order. In our summer sale, we also hope to offer outdoor toys such as ride on's, playhouses etc. Watch this space...!
Equipment: We try and stock plenty of baby and toddler equipment such as bouncy chairs, moses baskets, bumbos, baby gyms, sterilisers (non-electric), nursery bedding, mobiles etc. We also try and offer larger items such as cots and pushchairs.
Donated stock is stored in between sale dates, so if there is something in particular you are looking for, please contact us as we may be able to help.
