Goods for sale
- Bookings are strictly for quality preloved goods only. If you have items on your stall that do not meet this requirement we may ask you to remove them.
- All goods must be intended for maternity, babies and children up to the age of 6.
- All items should be complete and electronic toys should be in working order with full instructions where possible.
- It is advisable not to sell: cot mattresses - except travel cot mattresses (due to increased risk of cot death), clothes which have a drawstring neck, soft toys with loose or missing parts, anything which is broken, stained, ripped or generally in poor condition. Puzzles and games should be complete. Some people do want to buy secondhand car seats but there is low demand and selling price will be low.
- Toys and equipment should comply with British Safety Standards
- Toys: Any toy which is supplied either new or secondhand must comply with a set of “essential safety
requirements”. If you bought your goods new in the UK in the last few years they should comply with these standards- but if you are unsure here's a quick guide to what they cover.....
Physical and Mechanical Properties - e.g. loose facial feature, sharp edges, finger trapping hazards,flammability, chemical properties - e.g. paint must not contain excessive amounts of lead or other metals, electrical properties - e.g. toys must not operate at a voltage exceeding 24V
Hygiene - e.g. toys must not present a risk of infection. Children frequently put toys in their mouths. Ensure that all toys are clean and where possible washed prior to supply or offering for supply.
Toys which are covered must be marked with appropriate instructions and warnings for safe use.
Toys are defined in the legislation as “any product or material designed or intended for use in play by
children under the age of 14 years”. (Some examples of items NOT classed as toys are listed here: Christmas decorations, detailed scale models for adult collectors such as CORGI Cars, fashion jewellery for children, puzzles with more than 500 pieces.)
- Hoods on Children’s Outer Clothing: The requirements relate to outer garments (defined as raincoat, overcoat, anorak or other garment
You should not supply or offer to supply such a garment which has a hood designed to be secured by means of a cord drawn through the material.
- Prams and Pushchairs All prams and pushchairs, whether new or secondhand must comply with British Standard
7409:1996 or an equivalent European standard.
Look for the label stating that the pram or pushchair complies with this standard or its equivalent. These labels are usually found on the frame or seat covering. If no label exists then it may be difficult to establish whether the item does comply with the standard. If the pram/pushchair has been damaged or modified itmay no longer meet the requirements of the Standard.
The pram/pushchair must also comply with the Furniture Furnishing (Fire) (Safety) Regulations 1988. It must carry a permanent label indicating this, with the words “Carelessness Causes Fire”. Check that the label is present. If not, then the pram/pushchair must not be supplied or offered for supply. If in any doubt, do not supply or offer the item for supply.
Any stall selling new goods or services is deemed to be a ‘Business stall’. In addition to the standard terms and conditions of stall booking all business stallholders must comply with the following in order to trade at a mum2mum market.
- All Business stalls must have their own Public Liability Insurance. This can either be shown on the day or emailed in advance. You will not be allowed to set up your stall without it
- All Business stalls must trade legally and comply with all laws related to running a business. Items which do not comply with current safety legislation will not be permitted for sale. Handmade dummy clips and other items with small parts designed for babies may not be sold.
- We endeavour to have only one business stall of each type at an event. However we are predominantly a nearly new stall and there may be nearly new stalls selling similar items secondhand.
- All Businesses must ensure that their stall and any displays are set up safely.
- Food stall holders are responsible for complying with specific Food Hygiene requirements and must hold the relevant certificates and registrations required by a food business along with suitable public liability insurance.
