Mum2Mum Market Expands into the Isle of Wight

You are here: Mum2Mum Market Expands into the Isle of Wight


Mum2mum market nearly new sales have been a haven for cash strapped parents in London and the South East and now they are coming to Isle of Wight.

Mum2mum market nearly new sales provide an opportunity for parents to make money selling on their outgrown baby clothes and equipment to other families. All goods for sale must be in excellent condition and sellers keep 100% of their proceeds on the day. Novice sellers are coached prior to the event with sellers’ tips and pricing guides to maximise their sales on the day.  
Buyers can make serious savings at their local mum2mum market.  Large items like designer prams and large toys sell for about one third of the retail price whereas baby and children’s clothes start at just 50p.

Mum2mum market was started in 2011 by busy mum of two Cath Harrop.  Having bought and sold on ebay and at car boot sales Cath realised there was a need for event which brought together local parents so they can sell to each other face to face.
Cath says ‘ 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! ‘

Since then the business has grown considerably, and Cath now has a network of local mums running their own mum2mum markets across the UK.  

With at least 20 mums selling at every mum2mum market there is a huge choice of baby and children’s items for sale and everything offered for sale must be in excellent condition.  Goods for sale range from large items such as designer prams, large toys and cots to toys, books, baby equipment and clothes from newborn to age six.
All the venues are indoors and the sales draw a large crowd with buyers queuing up to half an hour before the sale starts to get the best bargains.

Local mum Michelle Couse will be launching mum2mum market in Newport.

Michelle says ‘I regularly bought from mum2mum market on the when living in South London and picked up some fantastic bargains.  Having tried to sell my own collection of baby and children’s outgrown clothes, toys & equipment on various sites without much success I thought it was time to introduce Isle of Wight to mum2mum market.  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.’
