The market will be set up in May

A ‘nearly-new’ market offering second hand items for cash-strapped parents is set to open in May.

The Mum2mum market operates across the country and provides opportunities for parents to sell on their outgrown baby clothes and equipment to other families.

The national success has seen large items such as designer prams sell for around a third of their retail price, while clothes can sell for as little as 50p.

Local mum-of-two Faye Bulley will be setting up the market.

She said: “I sold at a Mum2Mum market in February and loved it, I was inspired and I decided to look into working from home to be able to stay with my girls more.

“I thought it was a brilliant idea and wanted give local [parents the opportunity to buy great quality second hand goods or make some cash from their outgrown children’s clothes.”

The first market will be held at Christchurch Hall, Dartford DA1 3DH on Saturday, May 14 from 2-4pm.

Admission is £2 on the door for adults and children go free.
