Lots of free fun at mar­kets

Fill shop­ping bags for less

Maroochy Weekly - - ADVERTISING FEATURE / PARENTS AND KIDS -

THE Sunny Coast Baby and Kids Mar­ket aims to give fam­i­lies an af­ford­able shop­ping des­ti­na­tion, and an out­let for lo­cal busi­nesses to show­case their products.

It’s a per­fect op­por­tu­nity to grab a bar­gain, pur­chase products and help sup­port lo­cal busi­nesses.

There will be a good se­lec­tion of pre-loved stalls sell­ing baby and chil­dren’s clothes, toys, books, cots, prams, high chairs and por­ta­cots as well as beau­ti­ful hand­made items made lo­cally.

Mar­ket or­gan­is­ers aim to give lo­cal fam­i­lies the op­por­tu­nity to pick up all the es­sen­tials at a frac­tion of the price of pur­chas­ing new.

“Our mar­kets are held on the last Sun­day of ev­ery month (ex­clud­ing school hol­i­days) and are at three lo­ca­tions – Caloun­dra, Moun­tain Creek and Nam­bour,” an or­gan­iser said.

There is a raft of ac­tiv­i­ties on the day in­clud­ing free story read­ing or­gan­ised by the Sun­shine Coast Li­braries, free talks from a lac­ta­tion con­sul­tant, free face paint­ing, kids’ hair­cuts for a small fee, dance shows from lo­cal dance schools and arts and craft ac­tiv­i­ties.

There’s al­ways free bounty bags to give away as well as free jump­ing cas­tle at the Caloun­dra and Moun­tain Creek mar­kets.

The en­ter­tain­ment varies from mar­ket to mar­ket so it’s best to stay up to date by fol­low­ing us on Face­book and In­sta­gram.

The Sunny Coast Baby and Kids Mar­ket is a great place to have a stall.

“We pro­vide you with the ta­ble and chair, and all you need to bring is what you want to sell,” an or­gan­iser said.

“Pre-loved stalls start at $40 and you can al­ways share with a friend to make the day more en­joy­able. Busi­ness stalls start from $55.

“Book­ings can be made through our web­site. Mar­kets fill up quickly so it’s best to book ahead for the mar­ket you are con­sid­er­ing.

“All mar­ket dates can be found on our web­site.

“At the Sunny Coast Baby and Kids Mar­ket our aim is for you to have a fun morn­ing out.

“All venues are in­doors with pram ac­cess and nearby park­ing.”

Hot food and cof­fee are avail­able for pur­chase.

En­try is $2. Kids are free.
