How much is a stall?
Do I get to keep 100% of the money I make
Yes — absolutely. We do NOT take a percentage of your sales.
How do I book my stall?
Online — you can book and pay through our website with a Paypal account, debit, or credit card.
All payments are securely processed through Paypal.
Can I share a stall?
Yes, if you feel that you do not have enough items to fill a stall, you are welcome to share a stall with one friend (max of 2 adults per stall + kids). Please note that when sharing a stall the volume of items on display must be suitable for a single stall, and all other stall conditions apply.
What does my stall hire include?
Your stall hire includes: extensive online and offline marketing campaign to attract hundreds of buyers, excellent indoor venues, 6ft table, 1–2 chairs, linen table cover, and 4 x spaces in the Large Items Gallery.
What size is my stall?
TIP: Measure out your stall space on the floor at home to get a visual idea of how big your stall is and what volume of items would be suitable to bring to the market.
Due to health and safety regulations, keeping aisles clear, and making it easy for buyers to have access to your items to purchase them, we need to strictly adhere to stall boundaries and all items at your stall must completely fit within the boundaries of your stall. There must be appropriate space for buyers to be able to look at your items without having to pull them out into the aisles.
If the volumne of items on display are too large to fit within your stall boundaries and enable an appropriate presentation of merchandise, items will be requested to be removed from display until space becomes available due to other items being sold.
Do I need to bring my own clothes rail?
Yes. We do NOT provide a clothes rail. If you do not have a rail, Argos or Ikea sell them for approximately £8, or clothes-horses and free standing towel rails work well to hang clothes on hangers from.
What size clothes rail can I use?
You have a 1m x 1.5m space next to your stall table.
1. For maximum sales we recommend a 1 x 1m rail placed flush with the front of your table. This is the easiest way for your customers to view your hanging items. You can use a two-tiered rail, or 2 x 1m rails placed one in front of the other with the back rail raised to create a two-tiered rail.
2. Rails between 1m — 1.5m are placed perpendicular to the front of your table.
3. Rails larger than 1.5m do not fit at your stall and are not permitted to be displayed.
How does the Large Items Gallery work?
You keep control of your own money and sales for items placed in the Large Items Gallery. Customers are able to pay you directly at your stall due to our double-label system where:
NOTE: The following items are equivalent to 2 x spaces used:
How do I get my Large Item Labels?
We will email your custom made Large Item Labels for you to print out and complete at home before arriving at the market. This will save you plenty of time on market day!
What items should be placed in the Large Items Gallery?
Customers will go directly to the Large Items Gallery to look for buggies, cots, moses baskets, high-chairs, car-seats, walkers, swings, bouncers, changing tables, large children’s bedroom/nursery furniture, medium/large bikes, large indoor and outdoor toys and equipment.
What items are NOT permitted into the Large Items Gallery?
Playmats, small/medium toys, ride-ons, plastic baby baths, and clothes are not considered large items and, therefore, not permitted into the gallery.
What if I want to keep my buggy at my stall?
Bearing in mind that customers will go straight to the Large Items Gallery for buggies and large items and not to the stalls, you can however choose to keep some large items at your stall.
To fit 1 x buggy or a high-chair next to your table in the 1m x 1.5m space that you have, you will be required to remove your clothes rail, as there is not room for both. All buggies and high chairs must be displayed fully errected. Any large item at your stall must be able to be viewed adequately without buyers removing them into the aisles.
Car-Seats/Walkers/Bouncers can be placed along the floor in front of your table as long as all items fit completely within the 2m x 0.5m space.
What about extra large items that don’t fit in my car?
You can display photos and descriptions of large indoor and outdoor baby & kids items that don’t fit in your car and display these from your stall – we’ve done the work bringing you buyers, so it makes sense to show them what else you have for sale.
What items can I sell at The Jack & Jill Market?
Any quality, nearly-new maternity, baby, and children’s items specifically made for pregnant and nursing mums, and children up to 9 years of age; items that were bought or received as gifts but not used.
What items can I NOT sell at The Jack & Jill Market?
The Jack & Jill Market is a quality market for gently-used items. Any item that is in poor condition: not fully functional, broken, rusted, stained, torn, muddy, mouldy, excessively worn or stretched will not be accepted and will be requested to be removed from stall display per the Terms & Conditions agreed to at the time of booking.
Any item that is not specifically made or painted for baby & kids use: general household furniture, adult clothing (except maternity clothing), etc is not permitted to be displayed.
Do you accept business or craft stalls?
As we are a nearly-new market dedicated to helping local mums and parents within the community make and save money for their families, and dedicated to our recycling aims and objectives, we do not permit business or craft stalls.
Can I distribute my business cards and flyers from my nearly-new stall?
Per our Terms & Conditions agreed to at the time of booking, no business cards or flyers are permitted to be distributed from the stalls or in the market place, including external grounds that have been hired by The Jack & Jill Market.
How early can I start setting up my stall before a market?
You have access to your stall 1 ½ hours before the start of the market. We recommend you give yourself at least 1 hour to set up your stall in a presentable manner ready for selling.
What is the latest I can arrive to set up my stall?
Due to health and safety requirements for needing all aisles completely clear for opening time, and our requirements of appropriately presented stalls, you are deemed to have forefited your stall if arriving after 10am. After this time, unfortunately, it is not possible to set-up and be ready to trade by 10.30am.
What items do not sell very well at nearly-new markets?
Second-hand soft toys do not sell well because babies and kids tend to chew and bite on them and often they are not machine washable so are not able to be properly cleaned.
Items in poor condition do not sell at all and are not permitted to be displayed.
How do I price my items?
You choose your own prices and price your items at home before market day. We will send you detailed advice on this; however, as a general guideline:
You will receive further guidance leading up to the market.
How much money do Jack & Jill Market stallholders make?
We gather feedback from stallholders at the end of each market. To date, our feedback shows that on average at each market 10% of stalls make < £100, 80% of stallholders make between £100-£350, and 10% make £350 — £500. To date, our top selling stall has made £786.
PLEASE NOTE: To date, stalls selling only clothes and no other items have made a maximum of £220 with the average being £120. It is unlikely that earnings higher than £220 will be made from selling clothes only.
What is the quickest way I can prepare for The Jack & Jill Market?
The best way to use The Jack & Jill Markets is as an ongoing financial plan every 3, 6, or 12 months to make instant money and free up cashflow to spend on what you and your family require now.
Therefore, bring only a selection of items that are suitable for the season of the market – e.g. summer clothes do not sell at a December market, and leave other items for another market day. Bring only a volume of items that are suitable for the stall space you have — we guarantee, you will sell more if your customers can easily get access to your stall and can easily see the individual items on display.
Basically, ensure all clothes, toys, and items are clean, put some price stickers on them, turn up and sell. It’s as simple as that!
Do I get any support and help with pricing, displaying my items, and selling on market day?
Yes – absolutely. We’re here to help ensure you have a fun and profitable Jack & Jill Market day.
