Little Monsters baby and children’s preloved sales are a great way to buy and sell anything and everything related to maternity, babies and children. Here are some points about what you can expect, what will be expected of you as a stallholder, and some hints and tips for a successful market.

What you can expect

• By booking your stall, you will be reserving yourself a space at the market, which will

include

- a 6ft trestle table (size varies between venues)

- space at one end of the table to display larger items (for example a single pushchair,

highchair or a single hanging rail for clothes). There isn’t usually room for very large items

such as cots or playpens to be put up and displayed.

• All our Little Monsters sales take place in venues which are easily accessible, and with free car

parks wherever possible. At some venues we may arrange temporary unloading/loading

areas for stallholders, if a car park is not directly convenient to the market hall. This will

hopefully assist in reducing the amount of carrying you will have to do. However please do check the

venue details provided with each event.

• When you book your stall you will receive information specific to your venue giving the

details of where and when you should arrive to unload your items and set up your stall,

opening and closing times, and a copy of our terms and conditions and invoice.

• When you arrive, find the check in desk and the event organisers will show you to

your stall, which will have been allocated just for you. Please arrive in plenty of time to set

up your stall.

• Doors will open promptly at the given opening time, and you can expect a busy event full

of enthusiastic bargain hunters willing to haggle for what they want!

• Little Monsters welcomes families and promise buggy-friendly venues, so expect to

have children attend your stall, and bear this in mind in the way you arrange it.

• The market will close to the public at the given time, and you will be expected to pack up

your stall and remove all items, rubbish and packaging when you leave.

• Little Monsters is committed to providing, maintaining and promoting so far as is reasonably

practicable, the highest standards of Health, Safety and Welfare at our events.

• Following the event please do let us know how the market went for you, and any

comments or ideas you may have. We aim to make our events as enjoyable as possible for both our

sellers and buyers, so feedback would be much appreciated, positive and negative so that we can get

it right for you.

• Only pre-booked stalls may attend. We will not accept bookings on the day.

 

What will be expected of you

• It is essential that you read and understand Little Monsters Terms and Conditions

 before you reserve your stall. You will be emailed a copy of the terms and

conditions with your invoice, as a reference.

• Please ensure you arrive in plenty of time. For reasons of Health and Safety we will not

allow stallholders to arrive to set up with less than 30 minutes before the doors being opened to the

public. You will also sell a lot more if you have had time to arrange your stall well.

• Set up the stall safely. Do not pile things up as they may topple over.

• Feel free to bring a friend to help you on the stall. It is your responsibility to make them

aware of our terms and conditions of participation.

• Ensure that valuables and money is safeguarded. Little Monsters cannot be held responsible

for the loss of money, equipment or goods from the event.

• Please don’t trade or buy from other stallholders before we have opened the event.

Customers may have been queuing outside before the event opens in order to

purchase the bargain they are looking for,  it is only fair to offer them first chance of

buying these items. As a preloved stallholder, you agree to participate to sell and

shoppers pay an entrance fee to visit and buy. After opening time, stallholders are able to

shop like all other customers. Please note that stallholders who are identified as shopping

before opening time are at risk of losing their stall.

• When carrying your goods in & out of the venue, please ensure that you are not dragging

items across the floor. Any damage to the floor may result in the stallholder having to pay

for the re-surfacing of the floor.

• Ensure that all rubbish and packing from your stand is removed from the site before the

event begins.

• Please do not block any of the entrances or exits, including Fire doors.
