     Stall Set Up  
     
 

Boxes/Plastic Tubs - When displaying goods and boxes/tubs on the floor in front of your table they must not spread into the aisle as this may cause a tripping hazard. Too many goods on the floor will also create congestion which can deter shoppers. Be sure to utilise the Large Items Area as this will allow for more space at your stall for your smaller items. If you are planning to display tubs/boxes on the floor in front of your table you are required to have a sheet or towel underneath them to protect the floor surface.

Clothes RackClothes racks are a great way to sell clothing at the market. Stallholders may bring one small/medium clothes rack to place beside your trestle table. Please note that clothes racks are not provided so you will need to bring your own if required. Should more than one rack be on display you will be asked to remove the second rack or if they are small racks they may be placed together to form one rack. (Please note this will be at the Market Managers discretion). Large commercial or double clothes racks are not permitted due to space restrictions.  The rack must not protrude too far past the table into the aisle as this can cause congestion and may create a tripping hazard at your stall.

TableclothWe encourage all stallholders to bring a tablecloth to cover their trestle table as this will improve the overall appearance of your stall and make it more attractive to the shoppers.

Stall number stand - Please ensure that the stall number stand provided remains on your table and is clearly visible at all times as this will assist shoppers in locating your stall.

We have compiled a handy list of SELLING TIPS to assist you why not check them out!

 
     
     Stall Location  
     
 

In most cases you will be allocated the preferred stall that you booked online, however, on occasions we may need to relocate some stalls due to last minute operational requirements. Please note that we will ensure your stall is as close as possible to your preferred stall.

A map of the stall layout and a full Stallholder list will be on display at the entry points on market day. Please refer to the Stallholder List upon entry to double check your stall location. Market staff will be available to assist you in locating your stall if required.

If you book more than one stall or wish to have a stall near a friend please advise of this in the comments section of your booking. If you are unable to book them together please email us a request and we will happily relocate your stall/s where possible.
 
     
     Set Up & Pack Up Times  
     
 

Doors will open at 7.30am for all stallholders and set up will continue until 8.45am. Stallholder only access doors will be closed at 8.45am and remain closed until the end of the market at 12noon.

Empty stalls will be reallocated to other stallholders or removed at 8.30am SHARP so please ensure you allow plenty of time to locate the venue as we do not refund or transfer stalls if you do not make it on time.

The market will close to the shoppers at 12 noon and all doors will be reopened for stallholder pack up. We ask that you pack up as quickly as possible as the venues require us to have the floor clear by 12.45pm.  Please leave your stall area as you found it.

 
     
     Floors  
     
 

The majority of markets are held within basketball stadiums on timber flooring. It is very important when moving your goods in/out or around the hall they are all carried and you are not dragging any items across the floor. Any items with wheels must have the brakes turned off and the wheels turning freely.

When bringing items to the Large Items Area all goods must be carried where possible. Please ensure items with plastic wheels such as highchairs and change tables have the brakes turned off.

If you are planning to display plastic tubs or boxes on the floor in front of your table you are required to have a sheet or towel underneath them. If you are unable to adhere to this you will be asked by the market manager to remove them.

Any damage to the floor (i.e. scratching) may result in the stallholder having to pay for the re-surfacing of the damaged area.
 
 

 


     Helpers  
     
 

The stall fee includes up to two people at your stall for the duration of the market. Additional helpers are allowed during set up or pack down, however, they will not be allowed to remain at your stall once the market is open to the public.

Children are welcome to accompany you at the market however they must be supervised at all times. They are to remain within your allocated stall area and we ask that you consider your neighbouring stallholders.

Two stallholder stickers will be on your table when you arrive at your stall, these are for you and your helper to wear on your shirt. They will clearly identify you as a stallholder and give you access in and out of the hall during the market.

 
     
     Chairs     
     
 

In most cases the venues are unable to provide enough chairs for all stallholders so we suggest you bring a chair or two if required to guarantee you will have somewhere to sit. All chairs must be placed on a small mat or towel to prevent any damage to the floor. If you are unable to adhere to this you will be asked by the market manager to remove the chairs.

 
     
     Food & Drink  
     
 

All My Kids Market NSW venues have a facility to purchase food and drinks. We ask that care is taken to minimise spills within the hall. Please ensure that all food waste is placed in the bins provided and that you leave your stall area as you found it.

 
     
     Exit Doors  
     
 

All exit doors must be kept clear at all times and no stallholder is allowed to place goods, clothes racks or tables in front of the exit doors.

 
     
     Large Items Area  
     
 

It is important that only clean items in excellent pre loved condition are sold. All items must contain the correct screws, attachments, panels, fittings and harnesses that are required for the item to be fully functional. Any items that are found to be broken, dirty, mouldy or not in 100% working order will not be accepted. If a shopper contacts us after the market to advise that an item they purchased is faulty we will pass on the Stallholder contact details for the shopper to contact directly to resolve the issue. My Kids Market NSW will not enter into a dispute; this must be resolved privately between the two parties.

Items must be brought to the area between 7.30am – 8.30am to be checked by the market staff, no items will be accepted after 8.30am.

Each item must have its own Large Items label (see Instructions for Large Items Area document for further information on completing the label). 

Stallholders can place 4 large items in the display area. The area is designed for large nursery items only and we have listed acceptable items below to assist you:

  • Prams/Strollers - must be sold with a tether strap and red brakes are to be visble.
  • Car Seats - must be less than 10 years old and not have been involved in an accident. All car seats must comply with the Australian Standards AS/NZS 1754 and the official label must be clearly visible.
  • Cots/Mattresses and portacots - these are to be sold unassembled due to space restrictions, we suggest attaching a photo to show the assembled cot if required.
  • Highchairs
  • Change tables and baby baths
  • Safety Gates and playpens
  • Rockers, bounces and walkers
  • Bikes and outdoor toys etc
