    Default Best way to sell baby gear?

    Hi all,

    I have finally come to the conclusion that I need to sell a couple of baby items that I won't use again - namely bassinet and pram. Just wondering if anyone could give me tips on the best way to sell it? I don't have any friends who are trying/having their first baby so can't pass it on to anyone. Just wondering what has been the most successful method - gumtree, garage sale, paper - any others suggestions would be great.

    Cheers.

    Have a look at baby & kids market website. They have one in each state. I booked a stall for about $65 and made around $600.

    Btw I liked the market because even though I spent a bit of time beforehand pricing items & cleaning them up, you clear out a heap of stuff at once.

    If you're in Melbourne and feeling like donating the goods there's an organization that gives pre-loved cots, prams and baby gear to babies in need. They're called St Kilda Mums.
