It’s no news that the rising cost of living has impacted families around Australia with many families starting to feel the pinch and finding themselves re-prioritising their budget, making more cost effective switches and going without items that could be seen as luxuries.
Between December 2021 and December 2022, headline inflation in Australia rose by a staggering 7.8%, with the cost of mandatory items. Mandatory items such as food, housing, bills, taxes etc are where low-income Australians spend most of their incomes.
Meanwhile, wages appear to have only risen by 3.1% over the September 2021 – September 2022 period.
With the price of goods growing faster than the rate of salaries – Australians have had to allocate more of their household budgets to meet basic living costs.
With many families putting aside or postponing shopping for new clothes, shoes, toys & kids items – My Kids Market has created a space where you and your children do not need to go without & where families can also make some extra cash.
With over 10 markets across Sydney, Newcastle & the Central Coast, shoppers will find gently-used pre-loved baby & kids items as well as local businesses & brands offering exclusive MKM specials.
Save big on big brands
You will find big brand clothes, shoes, toys, furniture, nursery items, prams, bikes + so much more, at a fraction of the price that you would pay in-store.
Whatever it is that you may have on your list of things to buy for your children – chances are, you will find it at MKM.
Keeping unwanted items out of landfill
26.8 Million toys go to landfill every year and make up a huge portion of the waste that you will find there. Not only do toys take up a lot of space, they can take anywhere between 20-500 years to break down.
By passing on unused toys, MKM’s pre-loved sellers can give their toys a new life & MKM’s shoppers don’t have to pay full price for toys that they too will grow out of.
Make some extra cash
MKM is one of the only regular markets that anyone wanting to sell baby & kids items can take part in! Whether you are a family looking to make some extra cash & declutter your home or you’re a business wanting to get immersed in a wonderful community that is all about mums, bubs & kids – MKM makes it easy to turn up, set up & sell.
With very little overheads to take part in our markets – MKM provides the venue, the space, the tables & of course, the shoppers.
We support local businesses
Being a local business owner has its challenges, we know! The cost of running a business is also on the rise and getting your brand in front of the right audience can be an expensive exercise that may or may not get you anywhere.
Businesses within the mum, baby & kids space have the perfect opportunity to connect with hundreds of families at each and every market & showcase what they have to offer to their exact target market.
MKM caters for all families and is accessible & cost effective for both stallholders and shoppers – from low fees to host a stall to free kids entertainment, no two markets are the same, keeping families & stallholders coming back to MKM time and time again.
We hope to see you at our next event!
No two markets are the same with new sellers at every market, you will discover something different at every event!
