Event Type

Cash savvy parents will be flocking to Harrogate on Saturday 25th June when Mum2Mum Market returns to Harrogate High School. The award winning pop-up market will have over 30 stalls laden with quality secondhand baby and children’s goods – all quality brands in excellent condition.

Previous events have drawn in over 300 buyers- 100 in the first 5 minutes and some queuing an hour beforehand to get the best bargains. There are serious savings to be made by buying secondhand. With large items like designer prams selling for around a third of the new price and baby and children’s clothes from just 50p parents can save thousands of pounds on kitting out their kids.

What is a Mum2Mum market event? Quite simply, it is a baby and children’s nearly new sales, where mums sell to mums. Parents can buy top quality baby and children’s toys, clothes, books and equipment at a fraction of the high street price- all great brands in fantastic condition. Parents with outgrown baby and children’s goods can sell on their outgrown kids stuff and keep 100% of the proceeds. The stalls are held by local mums who recycle on their own children’s outgrown clothes, toys books and equipment to other mums and they keep 100% off the profits. Novice sellers are coached prior to the event with sellers’ tips and pricing guides to maximise their sales on the day.

Mum2mum market was started by Wimbledon mum of two Cath Harrop in 2011 and scooped the Best New Business Award at the Merton Business Awards in 2012 as well as gaining Deborah Meadon’s backing on Dragon’s Den in 2016. Cath now has a network of local mums running Mum2Mum Markets nationwide.

Harrogate franchise owner Aislinn said:

Mum2mum market is so popular because we make it really easy for parents to recycle their outgrown children’s goods. In today’s economic climate and with the rising costs of parenting, family budgets need to stretch that little bit further. With Mum2mum Market everyone’s a winner. Buyers can source great quality secondhand goods at a fraction of the high street price and sellers keep 100% of their profits . Our top seller mum made £550 selling at a mum2mum market.

Mum2Mum Market will return to Harrogate High School on Saturday 25th June from 2pm – 4pm. Admission is £2 on the door (children free) and there is free admission for the final 30 minutes when prices hit rock bottom! For more information or to sell at a future sale visit or contact Aislinn on
