Put this date in your diaries if you are a parent – the next Kidspot Baby Market is just 1 month away. Hosted by the Belmont Oasis Recreation Center, it is simply the best-recycled market for all things kid related.
One piece of advice I was given prior to attending my first market as a punter was to have a list of what you are looking for as there is everything you can think of, and even more of the things you didn't know you needed and it can be a bit overwhelming.
While children are happily able to attend, it may be a good idea to bring a partner and suggest they take the kids to play at the neighbouring Volcano adventure playground to leave you free to shop.
Prepare to find a massive variety of kids toys, both new and pre-loved, books, prams, cots, dolls houses, baby carriers, high chairs along with an amazing selection of clothing, blankets, sleeping bags, just about everything you need or can think of.
Remember to bring cash and also bags to carry your purchases home in. I've been to the Belmont one a few times now and parking gets very full, very quickly so grab the first spot you can find as this is also a Recreation Center so there are people using the centre facilities too.
There are usually some yummy homemade treats to indulge in on your way out too with leftover dollars.
So mark the date in your diary, and think about whether it's time you got a stall for yourself to pass on all your gorgeous pre-loved baby and kiddie items. Check out their website for more information about becoming a stallholder if now is the time for you to have a clear out.
