Due to unprecedented demand for seller places, and continuing difficulties securing enough volunteer helpers to cope with the number of seller items, we have made some drastic changes so that we can continue running these sales. We are a very small business and we feel passionate about rehoming as many items as possible to new owners, making children's goods more affordable for those who really need it, and helping local charities. To achieve this ongoing, we can not offer seller places to non-volunteers. This means that if you want to sell you will also need to help on the day, all day. We appreciate that this is quite a commitment, but for those of you who have helped before you will know that days are great fun. This also means that everyone who wants to sell can get a space, up to our seller limit. We are working hard at streamlining the running and layout of the sales so that soon we will be able to reduce the hours for volunteers. In comparison to ebay and boot fairs, we offer the following advantages:
- a chance to shop for yourself on the day
- clean, warm and dry surroundings for the sale
- being part of an incredible team of people
- selling lots of goods at once, at prices that you decide - no haggling or bidding
- a chance to return faulty items**, and no worries of negative feedback
** any faulty item must be reported within 48 hours and returned within 5 days, refunds will not be issued for items after this.
Our Sales can include items such as:
Baby & Nursery equipment, prams, Grobags, baby slings, travel cots, moses baskets, baby bedding, soft toys, maternity wear, cots, clothes, shoes, wellies, toys, books, DVDs, games, computer games, small bikes, toy boxes, nursery curtains, baby picture frames, school uniform, garden toys, dressing up clothes, dancewear, washable nappies, party equipment, baby baths - it all depends on what our sellers are selling on the day!
