The Little Tackerz (that's with a Z not with an S) Market held at the South Melbourne Community Centre is the brainchild of 2 very industrious young mothers.
The founders, Shelly and Susan, both have young children and live in the local Port Phillip community.
These young ladies started this market after discovering that there was very little in the way of pre-loved and second hand items in the area for children from the ages of 0 to 6 years of age.
They are involved with community groups as well as local op shops (thrift shops) who take donations from stall holders of any items they do not sell and wish to give to a good home.
With the cost of living constantly on the rise what a wonderful way to recycle a much needed resource back into the community.
The Little Tackerz Kids Market Founders - Shelly and Susan
Both Mums and Dads are invited to book a stall and recycle some of their childrens’ items.
These goods can range from children's quality second hand and preloved clothing, shoes, books, games, nursery furniture - as well as new items such as hair clips, art work, baby skin products.
A Selection Of The Port Melbourne Little Tackerz Market Stalls
The Little Tackerz Kid's Market also offers the local community a place to pick up some excellent quality - stress this point as this is NOT a Trash and Treasure Market - pre-loved bargains.
Some of these bargains may include top designer labels.
The fun is to find those hidden gems.
Do your children collect a special toy series? Do they collect Lego for instance or perhaps Beany Kids? These are great to collect as there are so many different ones to add.
Collectable Beany Kids
The pre-loved goods children's market is a great way to stock up on clothes
and shoes perhaps for the coming season. Children have a habit of
outgrowing their clothes before the clothes are worn out.
