It is not permissible to stand a clothes rail, pram, buggy, cot or walker etc in front of your table.
More than one table or space can be reserved, subject to availability. Larger spaces tend to sell out sooner.
We operate on a first come first served basis. Sales do tend to sell out a few weeks before the event.
All venues are indoors and have refreshments on sale. Each event has in excess of fifty tables available with hundreds of shoppers attending. This number of tables ensures a wide variety and choice of items that smaller sales cannot offer.

All toys and equipment should comply with British Safety Standards.

SECOND HAND CAR SEATS: Not Allowed
Due to government legislation
We cannot allow the sale of car seats or bases at our events. This includes individual seats or ones part of a travel system.
Stall holders will be asked to remove any from the room before the sale opens
Any toy which is supplied either new or second hand 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 within these standards 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”.
HOODS ON CHILDREN’S OUTER CLOTHING:
The requirements relate to outer garments (defined as raincoat, overcoat, anorak or other garment suitable for use as outerwear) with a measurement not exceeding 44cms across the chest, when the garment is laid out as flat as possible and fastened. 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 second hand 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 it may 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 sale. If in any doubt, do not supply or offer the item for sale.
DUMMY CLIPS: Not Allowed to Sell
FOR ANYONE MAKING AND SELLING DUMMY CLIPS
There are safety standards for selling them
The permanent ban on certain baby dummy chains with decorations including crystals and beads and other similar ornaments came into effect on 9 September 2011.
