You can save a fortune by shopping at a mum2mum market……here are our top tips to make sure you get the most out of your visit.
1) Bring a list!
The sheer volume and choice of goods on offer can be a little overwhelming if you are new to nearly new sales. Having a list can help focus your mind…… but don’t feel you have to stick to your list. One of the joys of nearly new sale shopping is discovering things you didn’t know existed or super bargain price on something you had ruled out for being too costly.
2)Connect with us
Keep an eye on your local facebook page in the weeks leading up to the event. Sellers often post photos of larger items for sale- handy if you are looking for a specific brand of pushchair, or like to do some research at home before you buy
3) Cash is King!
Bring plenty of cash! All our sellers will accept cash only and at some venues it might be quite a trek to the nearest cashpoint……. If you don’t want to miss out on that fabulous nearly new bargain then bring plenty of cash.
4) Shop later to avoid the crowds.
Lots of people like to arrive early and the sales are very crowded at the start of each sale. We do our best to make the aisles nice and wide but if you don’t like crowds then try coming a little later. The second hour is always much quieter and there are still plenty of fantastic bargains left…… in fact prices really hit rock bottom in the last half hour.
5) Get expert advice
At a mum2mum market nearly new sale all the goods for sale are sold face to face by the mums who have used them...... they can answer all your questions and give you a demo.
We organise events for parents of babies and young children so of course we allow buggies at all our events……. But we also know that some of you prefer to park up and put baby in a sling while you shop so we try to have a buggy parking area at all our sales. What we would advise is that you bring a bike lock or similar to secure your buggy as we can’t be responsible for left belongings. We also have refreshments and an area to park dad while you shop in peace J
If you prefer to shop with your buggy then that’s fine too…… you might find it a bit of a squeeze at the beginning of the sale but the crowds soon disperse.
7) ALWAYS do a second circuit of the hall
If you do a second (or third circuit) of the hall you will spot things you didn’t see the first time around…… 100% guaranteed!
Plus- lots of our sellers bring far too much stuff and keep restocking their stalls as they sell- so there are fresh new bargains appearing all the time.
