A quick glance in our garage and you see a whole load of plastic toys that my children have out grown, bikes, old scooters…all no longer used as they are too small. A quick look in my spare bedroom and old toys, books, children’s clothes that no longer fit any more have accumulated. With Christmas on the way, will likely get worse!
Thankfully help is at hand! I’ll be heading to the Baby Dinosaurs Pre-loved sale on Saturday at the Phoenix Centre in Cantley.
Baby Dinosaurs offer a one stop shop for all pre-loved nearly new baby and children’s toys, clothes, essentials and more under one roof.
Lisa Hensby, local mum to two little ones herself, set up the events earlier in the summer and Cantley will be her 6th Market. Looking at some of the recent reviews from sellers and buyers who have attended the previous market’s, i’m hopeful that I am going to sell some of our pre-loved toys and clothes and re-claim my spare room and some space in the garage!
Here are some recent reviews…
“I went to Scunthorpe market, lovely friendly stalls and well organised. They had play stations for children too. I bought a sleepyhead pod at a bargain price, it’s like new…there was something for all ages of children to buy at great prices. I even won a raffle prize – a quick hour is all you need to grab yourself some great stuff.” AH Facebook September 2018
“Super organisation! Lovely venue and the kids were kept very well entertained by all the additional play and toys left out for them. It would have been a real struggle without. Picked up a bundle of clothes for my 5 month old and all so nice, she is wearing a vest now as everything smelt lovely and clean and was displayed beautifully. We will probably do another stall with the remainder of our pre-loved items. Thanks to Lisa also for taking a large amount of our things to donate to charity – saves us the job.” EF Facebook July 2018
“Absolutely brilliant experience today…after going to the one in Bawtry, we decided to try the one in Scunthorpe and it was fantastic. We got a great bundle of clothes and toys for the kids…my little girl absolutely loved it. She was reluctant to take the face paint off that was done for her. I would highly recommend this to anybody with children – a brilliant experience and everybody so friendly. Would also like to add the princesses that were there were absolutely brilliant, my little girl loved them! Thanks for the great morning, see you all in Doncaster.” IDK Facebook September 2018
Lisa works closely with children’s charities and local councils, so that any un-wanted items that are left at the end of the sale can (if the seller wishes), be distributed to families who need a little extra support”.
