Mummys Market Tweed Civic Centre Brett Street, Tweed Heads, New South Wales, Australia, www.mummysmarket.com

Mummys Market is a Indoor monthly market that is held in Tweed Heads and Bangalow it is a market for baby/children and mummy related items. Items are gently used or new, and are at bargain prices. New items must be below retail price. Items found at Mummys Market are nursery furniture (must meet the ACC guidelines) clothing, toys, safety items, books, maternity items and anything else baby, child or mummy related!

There is also a dad's corner for dads to read the Sunday paper and have a coffee. There is a play pen supplied so dad can pop baby in and give those little pram legs a stretch; this also gives mum the opportunity to shop without bored children! They even have a movie running for the older children to watch. The great thing about keeping the kids entertained this way is that mums shopping without bored children don't make hasty purchases. It also gives them time to chat to other mums and pick up hints and ask questions about the products they are looking for.

Mummys Market also when available has free speakers on the day, on all kinds of topics such as homeopathy use within the family. Yet another way to pick up hints and save money!

The prices are cheap, the service is good and the stall holders don't mind haggling as they don't want to take their items home. So don't be shy, ask if they will accept a certain price. It's a fun, relaxing morning from 8am until 1pm.

There is also a cafe there that is very reasonably priced. Run by a local mum, it offers fresh and simple food at great prices. You have to try the home made Chai, delicious!

These indoor markets are run once a month in Tweed Heads at the civic centre,and Bangalow at the A and I hall.They are always indoors so come rain hail or shine they go ahead.

You can also have a clean out yourself and earn some money,get rid of last seasons kids clothes to buy for this season.We have had mums bring there items along to sell and now are regular stall holders.They are building up there own little businesses,have found a way to earn extra dollars and being a sunday dad can mind the children. Some mums even bring there older ones to help on the stall.It's very much a family affair which is what we are about.

All information is available at their website or phone enquiries are very welcome on 0404 240 263.
