Baby And Children's Market

If, like me you are pushing through life trying to look after a number of little-uns, you may be interested to know that there will be a local Baby and Children’s Market on Saturday 31st October from 2pm - 4pm. This will be held at Christ Church with St. Philip, Ruskin Drive, KT4 8LG.

Contrary to the name, the buying, swapping and selling of babies and children will be discouraged, however toys, clothes and other items used by babies and children are more than welcome for trading.

The market bills itself as "a unique market specialising in pre-loved baby and children’s goods". I don't know about you but I've seen quite a few "markets specialising in pre-loved baby and children’s goods" since the first WP Junior arrived. There was one in the Hamptons back in March... So I'd say the jury's out on "unique" however the rest of it stands up to scrutiny.

There will be lots of stalls  run by parents selling their quality pre-loved toys, books, clothes and equipment. It will also host a limited number of small businesses targeted specifically at the 0 - 9 age group.

The cost of entry will be £1 for adults - kids are free (no doubt to encourage additional pester power...) There will be hot and cold refreshments available and a face painter too.

The market is open for stall bookings and may appeal to parents that have a house full of outgrown baby and children items and want to create space and some extra cash. Of course it's also a great way of recycling. 

If you are interested in having a stall there, the costs are:
  • Nearly New: £15
  • Hand Made: £18
  • Business stall (information only): £20 
  • Business stall (selling): £25
