Can I sell new items at Treatots Market?

If you have a few unused new items or gifts that you didn't want, then that is fine, but the majority of your goods should be secondhand.

How much money will I make?

We invest a great deal of time and effort in marketing the events to attract large volumes of buyers to each Treatots Market. So with the buyers there, it depends on you to sell to them, getting your stall presentation and price right will be key. We have put together a seller's tip guide to help. Please read it carefully. 😊

What does my booking include?

The booking includes a table, either a choice of 3ft approx 0.9m x 0.6m or 4ft approx 1.3m x 0.6m or 6ft approx 1.8 x 0.6m and a chair (depending on availability at the venue) and a space up to 0.7m at the side to display one large item like a pram, cot or a clothes rail.

We also offer a FREE tea or coffee to stall holders, which is included in the booking fee. The fee helps contribute to the venue hire, marketing costs and public liability insurance cover for pre-loved goods stall holders. Business traders require their own public liability insurance policy.

Do I have to pay by paypal?

All stalls need to be booked online through our website www.treatotsmarket.co.uk. you don't need a paypal account you can choose to pay by a variety of cards at the checkout stage if you choose to.

Can I sell second-hand car seats?

It is advisable not to sell car seats, any given involvement in an accident or simply dropping the item can affect the internal structure, even if any damage is not visible on the exterior. If it is not structurally sound, then it will not protect a child. Equally, we would advise against selling second-hand cot mattresses, given the significant link with cot death.

Can you help me with pricing and presentation?

We have put together a seller's tip guide to help. This is sent to stall holders upon completing the booking. Please read it carefully.

There is also the option to hire a clothes rails from us (£3 to be paid in cash at the sale). These are standard sized rails 84cm wide and height adjustable. Please email us directly at info@treatotsmarket.co.uk to reserve a clothes rail, as we only have a limited number available. Unfortunately, we don't provide hangers with the rail hire. Most sellers find it convenient to bring clothes to the sale already on hangers.

What do I need to do to become a top seller?

Presentation and pricing is key, try and put yourself in the buyers mind set and consider if you would buy the item you want to sell for the price and current condition.

Top sellers

• Have read the seller's tip guide
• Price realistically
• Have a variety of goods and age groups
• Spend time on the stall presentation

Can I share a stall with a friend?

Yes, of course, there are different sized tables available 4ft or 6ft ( prices vary depending of table size) please bear in mind the amount you both have to sell, so the stall isn't overloaded with goods. It can be off putting for buyers if there is too much on the stall.

There is also the option to hire a clothes rails from us (£3 to be paid in cash at the sale). These are standard sized double rails 84cm wide and height adjustable. Please email us directly at info@treatotsmarket.co.uk to reserve a clothes rail, as we only have a limited number available. Unfortunately, we don't provide hangers with the rail hire.

Can I have more space?

Please consider how much you have to sell, and realistically how much you can bring to the event. Bringing everything doesn't necessarily mean you will sell everything. We would suggest booking onto another Treatots Market. It can be off putting for buyers if there is too much on the stall.

If you bring too much on the day, we wouldn't be able to allocate you extra space over the set pitch size, due to health and safety precautions.
