Come along with Jack & Jill to fetch some great bargains
Every parent comes to a realisation early on in their baby's life. They are accumulating more and more stuff and running out of space.
I came to that realisation when my baby was about 4 weeks old. I had 00000 clothes that bub wore once or twice and no longer fitted, as well as all of my maternity clothes. As bub has grown, I have added to the pile all of the 0000 clothes, newborn teats/bottles and unopened packets of newborn disposable nappies. It was when I added the bassinet to the growing mass of baby stuff that I knew it was time to do something about it.
Run by the Salvation Army, the Jack and Jill Baby Market in Forest Lake is a great opportunity to buy and sell good quality pre-loved baby items.
All under one roof, the Baby Market is filled to the brim with baby, toddler and children's clothes, books, prams, highchairs, cots, baths and bouncers. If it's used by a baby, toddler or child, chances are it's for sale at this market.
Held in an undercover area, parents can stroll around out of the sun, wind and rain and browse the huge collection of items all at bargain basement prices. For parents-to-be, this is a chance to stock up on everything you need at a fraction of the price of the big stores.
Anyone who wishes to be a stallholder, contact the Forest Lake branch of the Salvation Army for details.
With a cafe and sausage sizzle for the parents, and face painting for the kids, this is a great morning out for anyone with a young family.
Note that the sales are cash only, so stop at the ATM before you get to the markets.
