Parents can forget about ebay and head down to the launch of a new bargain market for babies which is due to launch in Isleworth next month.
When mum-of-two Danielle Armstrong, of Lower Mortlake Road in Richmond, heard about the mum2mum market - where parents can make money selling their children's outgrown baby clothes and equipment to other families - she signed up.
The 35-year-old will hold the first Isleworth market at The Blue School, in North Street, on Saturday March 28.
Ms Armstrong said: "I spend a great deal of time in Isleworth and attend some baby groups there.
"I heard about mum2mum market through a friend and thought it was a brilliant idea.
"I am so excited to be giving local parents the opportunity to buy great quality second hand goods or make some cash from their outgrown children’s stuff.
The baby and children's nearly new sales concept, where mums sell to mums, was started up in 2011 by busy mum Cath Harrop who was fed up of ebay and came up with an event which brought parents together.
Sellers keep all the profit made on the day and buyers can make serious savings from large items such as designer prams and large toys at a third of the retail price. Prices start from 50p.
Ms Harrop said: "I found ebay frustrating as a buyer and expensive as a seller and buying a pushchair that turned up filthy and broken was the final straw.
"I was convinced there must be a better way and mum2mum market was born!"
The business has grown across the UK with at least 20 mums selling at every market for parents with newborns to children aged six.
The mum2mum market launch will take place on March 28 from 3pm-5pm. Entry is £2. For more information go online.
