What does my booking include?
Your booking will include the following:
One trestle table approx. 1.8 x 0.8m and up to two chairs if required. You will also have space of approx. 0.9 meters to one side of you table to display any large items e.g a cot or to put up a clothes rail.
Your stall fee contributes towards the cost of your table hire, venue fees and marketing materials to attract buyers to the sale. All of our events are covered by public liability insurance.
What happens on the day?
Doors for sellers will open 1 hour before the event start time, with last entry being half an hour before the event begins. This ensures that you will have enough time to prepare your stall in a safe and well-presented manner. Stall holders should only pack up when the organisers have declared that the venue is closed and must not leave the event early for health and safety reasons. Once the event has finished, you will have 30 minutes to then pack up and vacate the venue - ensuring you take all items and rubbish with you.
I do not have a clothes rail; do you provide one?
If you do not have a clothes rail, we do give you the option to hire one for a small fee of £5. However, we will not supply hangers. Sellers do find it more convenient if you place your items on hangers before arriving, and it's also quick and easy for you to hang them up on the day.
What items can I sell at a Green Monkey Bump2baby Event?
All items must be second-hand and in a good working condition. These are to include items aimed at pregnant ladies and babies/children up to the age of 6.
Can I have my pitch next to my friend?
Of course you can! Please contact me once you have both booked and we will arrange this for you whenever possible!
Can I share a stall with a friend?
Yes of course, we allow a maximum of two adults per stall, just please ensure you do not overload your stall, piling items up high or around your stall can makes it look unattractive and not accessible to buyers, having a negative affect on your sales.
I have lots of items to sell can I have a large pitch space?
We do not have the option to provide you with a larger pitch. Our advice would be to purchase a pitch at another subsequent Green Money Bump2baby event. Overloading your stall can be very off putting to buyers. From experience, buyers tend to go to the stall holders that have well-presented accessible stalls. Our top sellers are not the sellers who bring the most items. Please do not bring to much stuff with you on the day. Our events are usually fully booked and due to health and safety reasons, we need you to stick to your pitch size, if you do bring to much, we unfortunately cannot offer you more pitch space on the day. Alternatively, If you have a friend of family member that is willing to run a second stall for you can purchase more than one stall and we will do our best to ensure your pitches are next to each other on the day.
Can I sell new/unused items?
Yes, you can sell some unused\unwanted gifts and items, so long as your stall Is mostly pre-loved nearly new items.
If you’re a craft/business stall or the majority of your items are new, please contact us to arrange a pitch before booking. Although we do allow a small percentage of our stall to be craft/business stalls, our buyers are expecting most of our stall to be pre-loved stalls where they can grab themselves a bargain!
Do I have to pay commission?
No, 100% of the proceeds are yours to keep!
How do I get my flyers in your goodie bags?
We give out goodie bags to the first 100 customers at each event, if you would like to have your flyers/promotional items placed in our bags please get in touch as we have several different packages, we can offer you starting from just £10.
Do you allow business stalls at your events?
We only allow businesses to hold a stall at our events who are wholly pregnancy, baby or child related. If your business does not fall into this category you are most welcome to contribute to our goody bags instead.
How can I promote my business on your social media sites?
We only allow businesses related to pregnancy, babies or children’s products and services. If this is you and you would like us to promote your business on our Facebook and Instagram accounts, please get in touch and we can send you our marketing options that start from just £10.
I need to cancel; can I get a refund on my pitch fee?
All pitch fees are non-refundable, however, we do understand that sometimes things happen to prevent you from attending. Therefore, we would consider transferring your booking to a later event. We would ask that you please contact us as soon as possible if you are unable to make the event, as we have a waiting list when our events are fully booked.
How much money can I make?
We will advertise each event, using many types of marketing to attract as many people as possible to come through the doors. Then it’s over to you! Have a look at our seller’s tips found on our Facebook page, which includes things such as presentation and pricing tips. Please have a read over these, to ensure you get the most out of your day.
Also, don’t forget to tell all your friends and family about the event, getting them to help spread to word. Like and share our Facebook page and other social media platforms.
