The Baby Market is coming to the Shearwater Hotel, Ballinasloe on Sunday, June 19 from 12-2pm.
With a show bursting at the seams with secondhand baby, children’s, and maternity goods for sale, entertainment for kids, beautiful new and handmade baby items, and baby-related businesses providing information on their products and services, the market will run every two months.
Baby Market events have turned into a bargain hunter’s paradise for budget-conscious parents who still insist on high quality. The show will have over 30 stalls with top quality pre-loved baby, children’s, and maternity gear.
The Baby Market Ireland was set up by a Cork mother of three in 2011, who, being budget-aware, spotted the opportunity for events to buy and sell pre-loved baby goods. With over 100 events in Munster now under their belts and up to 500 customers at the Cork events, she has shown that a new parent can save as much as €1,000 on the cost of basic new baby items. The Baby Market has expanded with events currently running every two months in Cork, Limerick, Tralee, Clonmel, Carlow, Navan, and Ballinasloe.
This is a fantastic opportunity for parents of older children to turn their no longer needed, good quality baby or child-related items into cash.
Sellers can rent a stall to sell their own items for €25, or individual items can be dropped off and sold for a 25 per cent commission. Businesses can rent a stall for €45.
