Frequently asked questions

 

How do the markets work?. . .

Our indoor markets are held in a variety of locations across Melbourne from 9am to 1pm.
Each market features approximately 70 to 80 stalls.

Each stallholder (seller) is designated a space of 2.5 metres to sell all their pre-loved baby and kids items or showcase their business relating to baby and kids. Stallholders can arrive to set up from 7.30am.

How can I book a stall?. . .

It’s easy! Just go to the Book a stall page to see all our dates and locations. Click on the market that you want to book a stall at and you’ll be prompted to fill out a booking form. Just follow the prompts to book and pay but please contact us if you would like to pay by an alternative method (bank transfer).

Once a booking is received you will get a confirmation email and then another email a week before market day with all the market day instructions and stallholder information.

Be sure to read our Terms and Conditions prior to booking so you are aware of all the nitty gritty!

How far in advance should I book a stall? . . .

As a guide, we usually book out about 3 weeks before market day. So make sure you get in quick to secure your spot!

My preferred market date is sold out. Do you have a waiting list? . . .

If your desired market date is sold out, please click on the ‘waitlist’ button on the Trybooking page and you will placed on the waitlist and contacted as soon as an availability comes up.

Alternatively, sign up to our mailing list (in the footer of the website) and you’ll be the first to know when we announce more markets dates and locations.

How much is a stall and table hire? . . .

All stalls cost $55 (both pre-loved and new/boutique/handmade stalls). If you are a business selling bibs, Attipas or hair accessories please, email dianna@allforkidsmarket.com.au prior to booking a stall as we limit categories to ensure the success of all storeholders.

Stall prices do not include table hire. Hiring of a standard trestle table (1.8 metres long) is an additional $5, if required. Simply check this option on the booking form. You are also welcome to bring your own table (see below).

What size are the stalls? . . .

Stalls are approximately 2.5 metres wide by 1.1 metres deep. This is enough space for:

  • One standard trestle table (1.8 metres in length), plus
  • 70 centimetres to the side to fit a clothes rack, etc.
  • 30cm in front for additional tubs of items

Can I bring my own table? . . .

If you don’t wish to hire a table for the low cost of $5, you are welcome to bring any size table/display you wish - as long as it fits in the designated space (2.5 metres x 1.1 metres). To make sure the market looks lovely, please bring a tablecloth to cover your table.

Do you hire clothes racks? . . .

Sorry we don’t hire out clothes racks. If you don’t have your own, try and borrow one from a friend or family. An alternative is to use a clotheshorse instead.

Can I request a particular stall location? . . .

Stall spots generally are allocated by All For Kids Market but if you have any special requests (next to a friend, corner location, etc) please specify this when booking in the ‘special requests’ section and we will do our best to accommodate.

We will send out an email the Monday prior to market day detailing what you need to do on the day, a map of the venue and your stallholder location.

Can I book a stall and share it with a friend? . . .

Yes, feel free to share a stall with your friend!

A word of advice when booking with your friends is to ensure that you don’t overload your stall. Often people bring too much stock and their stalls are so overloaded that buyers are unable to get a clear picture of what’s actually available. If you think you'll have too much stock for one stall, book two and request that you and your friend to be placed beside each other!

What can I sell? . . .

You can sell anything that is baby and kids related (aged from 0 to 7 years). Our markets are spacious enough that you can sell large items (like prams, nursery furniture, ride-ons etc.) at your stall too. It just needs to fit in your designated space.

How should I price my items? . . .

Price your items a few dollars more than the lowest price that you’re prepared to accept. This will allow customers to haggle a little, while ensuring you still get a price you want! Keep in mind that the busiest selling time is between 9am and 10am. So it’s best to price at this range between these times and then lower your price if the item is still there beyond 10am.

Most customers come looking for bargains. You’re much more likely to walk away with cash if your items are well priced.

How should I set my stall up? . . .

It's best to display your items by size; that way shoppers can easily find what they’re after.

Don’t overload your table! Make it easy for customers to look through your items. It is better to bring more things out as you go along, rather than putting it all out at once.

Consider adding a small sign on the front of a basket/clothes rack that describes items and brands (for example Boys Shirts sizes 3 – 5, brands include Esprit, Country Road and Pumpkin Patch). This way people who don’t like rummaging can see clearly what you have on offer.

Make sure that everything is clearly labelled with a price tag, either individually or together (e.g. everything on this rack $4). People are more likely to buy if they can see how much something is, rather than having to ask! They also come looking for a bargain, so be prepared to be flexible!

What happens on market day? . . .

You will receive an email the Monday before market day with all relevant information, including what to do on the day, a map of the venue and your stall location.

We open the doors to stallholders from 7:30am and you will need to be set up by 8:50am to begin trading from 9am (until 1pm). Pack up is from 1pm.
