All For Kids Market – Hoppers Crossing
If you missed the All For Kids market in March in Blackburn, you will be pleased to know the next one is coming up in May. Unlike the usual baby and toddler market, All For Kids is catered for kids up to 12 years old.
Here, you'll find all sorts of stuff you need for kids from boots and socks to Tellytubbies and high chairs. They sell pre-loved, handmade and brand new but from last month's event, pre-loved stole the day.
Get jumpers at $2, Clarks shoes at $8. I was in looking for a jacket for my daughter (1 year) and son (3 years) and I left with over a dozen items including a Kathmandu fleece, sneakers, flannel pyjamas and sleep suits. Total damage: $32.
If you love a bargain, head down to the All For Kids market. Bring the brood along because there will also be activities for the little ones such as face-painting, arts 'n craft, balloons. My son went up and down the Gymbaroo slide about 35 times, which was long enough for me to stock up on half the year's winter supply and grab a sausage sizzle as well.
All For Kids, however, is also for the seller i.e. people who have kids stuff to sell or parents who want to clear out their storerooms. Find out how to book a stall today and make money from all those things your kids don't use anymore.
One thing I noticed about All For Kids is that the organisers are genuinely helpful and love what they do. All For Kids was started by mums for mums so if you have any questions or have a business you'd like to promote they'd be happy to speak with you.
