Thousands of local mums, dads, grandparents, aunties and uncles flooded through the doors at the Five Dock Leisure Centre during 2019 to save big on all the big ticket items at My Kids Market and will be back to do it all again when the event returns to the Inner West on Sunday 1 March.
At the Market families earn some extra cash by selling gently used kids items their kids have outgrown instead of adding them to landfill while savvy shoppers enjoy huge savings on all the popular baby and kids brands when buying quality pre loved items at a fraction of the cost of buying new. Why pay retail prices on items when you can spend a fraction of the cost by shopping smart and help to reduce waste at the same time.
“My Kids Market is all about sustainability with items such as clothing, toys, shoes, books and nursery furniture being passed onto other families instead of being added to landfill” said Jennifer Harrison, Market Organiser “It makes perfect sense to buy pre loved items when our kids grow out of things so quickly” and “the items sold at the market are in as new condition with many items still in the original packaging”.
“We truly believe the success of these events is due to the excellent quality of the goods being sold and the low prices. We even have stallholders giving away items for free towards the end of the event!”
My Kids Market is run by mums for mums and caters to all baby and kids needs from pregnancy and newborns to approximately 8 years of age and often older kids things too. Everything for boys and girls can be bought and sold at the Market including baby and kids clothing, shoes, toys, books, games, puzzles, prams, bikes, cots, highchairs, rockers and other nursery items.
My Kids Market brings the whole community together in an event like no other with local business and services offering the kids fun activities and entertainment throughout the morning too and Mum and dad are also taken care of with the on site cafe. The Market is predominantly CASH only with no ATM so shoppers are encouraged to come prepared with plenty of cash.
As well as helping the local families My Kids Market is a proud partner of Share the Dignity and will be collecting donations of sanitary items to be passed onto women in need. There will be a collection box at the entrance point of the Five Dock Market and the team are asking all those who attend the markets as stall holders plus those who attend the markets as shoppers to bring along their donations.
“We are really passionate about supporting a charity that supports women. Our biggest shoppers are Mums or Mums to be so it is a perfect fit for us. Share the Dignity supports homeless women and those fleeing domestic violence by providing them with simple things that we take for granted such as sanitary items” said Jennifer Harrison, My Kids NSW Market Director “We are just so thrilled to give back to the community and have already collected over 1000 donations for the charity.” We hope that many families will come along to the Five Dock market to drop off all #sharethedignity donations and shop for some bargains.
