A first time mum found the cost of baby items so expensive she joined an organisation that specialises in organising second-hand selling events.
To keep costs down, Helena Stanley, 35, of Amersham Road, Harold Hill, tried second-hand selling websites but found the description of goods did not match up to reality.
She joined Cheeki Monkeys - organisers of markets where parents can buy or sell quality used children’s toys, clothes and equipment.
“After having my son in October 2014, I was really shocked at the cost of baby items,” she said. “Especially as most of them were only used for a matter of months.
“I then saw an advert for a Cheeki Monkeys opportunity, so I guess I’m now what they call a mumtrepreneur.
“I joined a month ago and have my first event on Saturday.”
Parents can book a stall at the event in Hornchuch Sports Centre, Hornchurch Road, Hornchurch, to sell pre-loved goods for £10 plus VAT.
A raffle for the Neonatal Unit at Queens Hospital, Rom Valley Way, Romford will also be held.
Prizes include Marsh Farm Ticets, a course of baby massage classes and a Knockerball session for 10.
The event runs between 2pm and 4pm with an admission fee of £1, children are free.
