Spalding mums-to-be can save thousands of pounds at a mum2mum market coming to town for the first time this Saturday.

The mum2mum sales, which have featured on BBC 2’s Dragon’s Den, bring parents face-to-face to sell and buy baby items.

I think you could easily kit out your baby for £200-£300.

Franchisee Katie Mundell

Sellers keep 100 per cent of the proceeds while expectant parents make serious savings.

Franchisee and mum of two Katie Mundell (37) said: “The average parent will spend about £2,000-£3,000 kitting out a baby. An expensive pram like Bugaboo can cost £1,000 but you can buy one for £100-£300 at the mum2mum sales.

“I think you could easily kit out your baby for £200-£300.”

Katie, from Ryhall, near Stamford, has the franchise for the whole PE area and her first venture into Spalding will be at The Vista, in Churchgate, from 2pm-4pm.

She has been running sales in Bourne, Stamford and Peterborough for the last couple of years.

Katie said: “I have been asked many times to set up an event in Spalding.

“I am so excited to be giving local parents the opportunity to buy great quality second hand goods or make some cash from their outgrown children’s stuff.”

There is a £2 amission charge for Saturday’s sale although it’s free for children.

Mum2mum founder Cath Harrop set up the business after becoming disillusioned with car boot sales and eBay.

Katie says when Cath appeared on Dragon’s Den, the Dragons loved the social aspects of the sales and Deborah Meaden made an investment.
