Sellers pitches are from £8. Buyers entry is free.

Sellers FAQ’s

what can I sell your market?

You can sell any second hand baby and children’s items that are aimed at babies and young children or pregnant women.

All items must be second hand but in good condition. 

How much money will I make?

The price you sell an item for is up to you.  We advertise each sale and attract as many buyers as possible to the sale but it is up to you to sell to them.  

 What does my booking include?

Enough room for a large table and a clothes rail.  These are not provided at all venues so check before booking. Chairs are available if you require one.

The stall fee also contributes to the cost of the venue and all our events are covered by public liability insurance.

How do I pay?        

All stalls need to be booked through our website and can be paid by bank transfer or paypal or we can do paypal via email.  You don’t need a paypal account you can choose to pay by a variety of cards at the checkout stage if you prefer.

Can I share a stall with a friend?

Yes you can, but please make sure the combined amount you bring does not overload your stall as this will have a detrimental effect on your sales 

Can I have more space?

You need to be realistic about how much it is possible to sell at one event.  If you bring too much it can be off putting for buyers, they tend to spend more at stalls that are well organised and not piled high. From our experience overcrowded stalls do not do as well as well organised stalls as people tend to walk past as its too much to process.

What sells best?

Second hand baby equipment, larger toys like walkers/ jumperoos and ride-ons, Dvds, small toys and games for all ages.  Bedding, sheets, towels and growbags are always popular as well as coats, wellies, waterproofs and designer clothing.

You must be realistic with your pricing and everything must look clean.  If you price too high people will not buy from you.

What doesn’t sell?

Anything which is ripped, stained, grubby, broken,  in poor condition or with missing parts will not sell and may well put buyers off your stall altogether.  If we see items on your stall that are not up to scratch we will ask you to remove them.

Soft toys do not sell well.

Second hand baby and children’s clothes are the least profitable items to sell.  They need to be priced cheaply as there is always loads of choice at each sale and they can be bought very cheaply new.

Can I sell second hand car seats?

Yes you can as some people want to buy them

We make it clear on the website that it is not recommended to use a second hand car seat and the market for them is small.  You should also be aware that you can buy cheaper branded car seats for £25 new so it is extremely unlikely that a buyer will pay more than £20 for a second hand one however much it cost new.

I have new/unused items.  Can I sell them?

If you have a few unwanted gifts or baby clothes that never got worn then you are welcome to sell them on your stall as long as the majority of goods are nearly new.

If you are a business, or want to have a stall where the majority of goods are new then please contact us to discuss.  This is a nearly-new market, our buyers expect to find nearly-new goods but we do have a couple of spaces at each sale for business sellers.

Any other tips?

    Price sensibly

    Don’t bring too much

Be selective about what you sell- only good brands in great condition,  a mix of clothes and other goods with a seasonal focus and suitable for a range of ages

Clothes rails are available for hire at many venues.  Rails may be booked at the time of stall booking by selecting the option on the drop down menu. Surplus rails may be available to hire on the day subject to availability.

 We don’t supply hangers or tables unless advertised. If you are bringing your own rail then please make sure it will fit in the space allocated (as a guide it should be less that 90cm wide).

 If your preferred bump2bump market is already sold out, contact us to be added to a waiting list.  At some venues we might be able to hire additional space if there is sufficient demand. 

 Goods for sale

 Bookings are strictly for quality-preloved goods only. If you have items on your stall that do not meet this requirement we may ask you to remove them.

All goods must be intended for maternity, babies and children.

 All items should be complete and electronic toys should be in working order with full instructions where possible.

 It is advisable not to sell: cot mattresses – except travel cot mattresses (due to increased risk of cot death), clothes which have a drawstring neck, soft toys with loose or missing parts, anything which is broken, stained, ripped or generally in poor condition.  Puzzles and games should be complete.  Some people do want to buy secondhand car seats but there is low demand and selling price will be low.

Toys and equipment should comply with British Safety Standards

 Toys: Any toy which is supplied either new or secondhand must comply with a set of “essential safety

 requirements”.  If you bought your goods new in the UK in the last few years they should comply with these standards- but if you are unsure here’s a quick guide to what they cover…..

 Physical and Mechanical Properties – e.g. loose facial feature, sharp edges, finger trapping hazards,flammability, chemical properties – e.g. paint must not contain excessive amounts of lead or other metals, electrical properties – e.g. toys must not operate at a voltage exceeding 24V

 Hygiene – e.g. toys must not present a risk of infection. Children frequently put toys in their mouths. Ensure that all toys are clean and where possible washed prior to supply or offering for supply.

 Toys which are covered must be marked with appropriate instructions and warnings for safe use.

 Toys are defined in the legislation as “any product or material designed or intended for use in play by

 children under the age of 14 years”. (Some examples of items NOT classed as toys are listed here: Christmas decorations, detailed scale models for adult collectors such as CORGI Cars, fashion jewellery for children, puzzles with more than 500 pieces.)

 Hoods on Children’s Outer Clothing: The requirements relate to outer garments (defined as raincoat, overcoat, anorak or other garment suitable for use as outerwear) with a measurement not exceeding 44cms across the chest, when the garment is laid out as flat as possible and fastened.

 You should not supply or offer to supply such a garment which has a hood designed to be secured by means of a cord drawn through the material.

 Prams and Pushchairs: All prams and pushchairs, whether new or second hand must comply with British Standard 7409:1996 or an equivalent European standard.

 Look for the label stating that the pram or pushchair complies with this standard or its equivalent. These labels are usually found on the frame or seat covering. If no label exists then it may be difficult to establish whether the item does comply with the standard. If the pram/pushchair has been damaged or modified it may no longer meet the requirements of the Standard.

 The pram/pushchair must also comply with the Furniture Furnishing (Fire) (Safety) Regulations 1988. It must carry a permanent label indicating this, with the words “Carelessness Causes Fire”. Check that the label is present. If not, then the pram/pushchair must not be supplied or offered for supply. If in any doubt, do not supply or offer the item for supply.

Terms and condition of Business stall bookings:

 Any stall selling new goods or services is deemed to be a ‘Business stall’.  In addition to the standard terms and conditions of stall booking all business stallholders must comply with the following in order to trade at a bump2bump market.

All Business stalls must have their own Public Liability Insurance.  This can either be shown on the day or emailed in advance. You will not be allowed to set up your stall without it

All Business stalls must trade legally and comply with all laws related to running a business.  Items that do not comply with current safety legislation will not be permitted for sale.  Handmade dummy clips and other items with small parts designed for babies may not be sold.

We endeavour to have only one business stall of each type at an event.  However we are predominantly a nearly new stall and there may be nearly new stalls selling similar items second hand.

All Businesses must ensure that their stall and any displays are set up safely.

Food stall holders are responsible for complying with specific Food Hygiene requirements and must hold the relevant certificates and registrations required by a food business along with suitable public liability insurance.
