Frequently Asked Questions for Stallholders
What size are your stalls?
Stall size: 2.3metres wide x 1.1metre deep – This allows for a Table approx 1.8m x 80cm, an extra 1⁄2 metre beside the table for a clothes rack, and 30cm in front of your table for display.
What size table can I bring?
You can bring any size table you wish as long as it fits into the size of your stall which is 2.3m x 1.1m.
What should I price my items at?
Price your items at the lowest price that you are prepared to take. Most customers come looking for bargains, and you are much more likely to walk away with cash if your items are well priced. Also be prepared to bargain and be flexible. Keep it simple, price low and sell lots!
How much is a stall and table hire?
A stall costs $55 for both pre-loved and new/boutique/handmade stalls
Stall prices do not include table hire. Hiring of a table is an additional $5 if required. You are also welcome to bring your own table.
How should I set my stall up?
It's best to display your items by size, that way shoppers can easily find what they are after
Do not overload your table! Make it easy for customers to look through your items. It is better to bring more things out as you go along, rather than putting it all out at once. Think about height, especially on your table. Consider putting a few boxes or baskets under your tablecloth so you can add some height to your table display.
Think about adding a small sign on the front of a basket/clothes rack that describes items and brands (for example Boys Shirts sizes 3 – 5, brands include Esprit, Country Road and Pumpkin Patch). This way people who do not like rummaging can see clearly what you have on offer.
Make sure that everything is clearly labelled with a price tag, either individually or together (eg: everything on this rack $4). People are more likely to buy if they can see how much something is, rather than having to ask! They also come looking for a bargain, so be prepared to be flexible, better a dollar in your pocket then none at all.
What time can I access my stall?
We open the doors to stallholders from 7:30am and close them by 8.30am. You will need to be set up by 8:50am to begin trading at 9am until 1pm. Pack up is between 1pm and 1.30pm. Stallholders are not permitted to pack up early
How can I pay for my stall?
You are able to pay for your stall via the following methods:
- Credit card via PayPal (you do not need a PayPal account to use this service)
- Please contact us if you would like to pay by an alternative method (bank transfer)
What is your cancellations policy?
50% refund will be given up to four weeks before market date, and after that no refund, sorry. Note: All refunds will be subject to a $10 administration fee. If the organisers need to cancel for any reason a refund will be given minus a $10 admin fee)
Do you hire clothes racks?
No we don’t hire clothes racks. We recommend that if you don’t have your own clothes rack, try and borrow one from a friend or family. An alternative is to use a clotheshorse instead.
Can I book a stall and share it with a friend?
Yes, feel free to share a stall with your friend. We are unable to split your payment so please organise that between yourselves.
A word of advice when booking with your friends is to ensure that you do not overload your stall. Often people when they share both bring too much stock and their stalls are so overloaded and buyers are unable to get a clear picture of what stock they have at their stall. If you think you'll have too much stock for one stall, book two and request for you and your friend to be placed beside each other!
Can I sell some new or boutique items on my pre-loved stall?
Our pre-loved stalls are for pre-loved items only. The exception to this is that we all have items our children never wore or gifts that were unsuitable. You are welcome to sell these at your stall, but 90% of your stall must be pre-loved.
If you do have boutique items and also want to sell some pre-loved items you must book a boutique stall.
Can I sell items that were bought for my children that were never used?
We all have items our children never wore or gifts that were unsuitable. You are welcome to sell these at your pre-loved stall, but 90% of your stall must be pre-loved.
How much room is there for a clothes rack?
If you have a hire table from us or provide your own standard trestle table (1.8m x 80cm) you will have 50cm for your clothes rack.
My preferred market date is sold out. Do you have a waiting list?
If your desired market date is sold out, use the Contact Us page or give us a call to request to be put on the waiting list. If a stall becomes available, we will contact you.
Can I have some flyers to hand out to my friends and family?
Yes, we are always happy to send you flyers to share with friends and family. You are welcome at anytime to send an email to Dianna at [email protected] and she will organise to send these out to you.

Why do you charge entry into your markets?
All for Kids Market is a reputable market business that selects quality indoor venues to hold our markets in.

Our main costs are the venue hire, marketing and of course public liability insurance. We wish to be a sustainable business that will continue to service your community in the years to come and so we charge a small entry fee of $3 for adults only, children are free.

Unfortunately you are unable to only sell a large item(s). This is a service that is for our stallholders only.
