All For Kids first anniversary
All For Kids market just celebrated their first anniversary at New Hope church - proof that their philosophy of 'mums helping other mums' really works. Besides the usual great bargains, they had birthday bags, door gifts and a full house of 80 stalls.

Quality kids stuff
If you're into pre-loved items, this month's market offered brands like Bebe, Pumpkin Patch and Country Road going for $5 to $10 a piece. Clarks and Converse from as low as $1 a pair. As usual, there are the bargain sections where you can get tops and bottoms for a dollar or two. My best buy was a gorgeous Dorothy the Dinosaur hat for 50 cents.

 
Beautiful bargains
Every market will be different but All For Kids seems to consistently draw a good selection of products. And that includes toys.

Other market highlights
The market supports mothers who have hand-made goods to sell. One of my favourites is Little Grub Designs, which offers handmade baby and infant accessories. They have one of the widest selections of bib designs I've seen, and are good if you're looking for something a little special. The bibs are of good quality with nice padded backings.

As always, All For Kids manages to make mum's shopping spree fun for the kids with activities like face painting, balloons and a jumping castle to keep the little ones happy.

A well-organised affair
All For Kids market stands out from other markets in its professionalism. Stalls may not be the cheapest but sellers can expect a good amount of traffic within those four hours, thanks to the efforts of its three founders, Sabina, Michelle and Naomi.

The mums heavily publicise each market via facebook, email and other advertising avenues. "When we try and do something, we try to do it well," said Michelle. The ladies are passionate about what they do and it shows, right down to the signature pink, green and blue balloons at every event. If there's something a mother knows how to do, it's how to organise things.

The next All For Kids market is at Sydenham Baptist Church on 4 May 2013.
