    See... I find it to be anything but quick and fuss free. All the messaging backwards and forwards... People changing days at the last minute, all the questions people will ask about the item when it's already stated the details etc etc. It just seemed to take ages for me!

    Our room is full of junk, we're having a garage sale and then any thing that doesn't sell is going to OP shop

    Not sure. I bet if you contact St Kilda Mums they'll know. I think there's one in Sydney too.

    I agree. It's all too much hassle for me to sell on ebay or facebook. Clothes I'm lucky to get 50c per item (even stuff that retails for $40 a piece new and I sell it when it's been worn once). I don't want random people coming to my house.

    A baby/kids market is a good idea, but it's still a lot of work - better for lots of big items rather than lots of little items (from a hassle point of view anyway). Although there are heaps of those markets near us I'm yet to find a time/date that suits us, so I've started giving things away to Op shops. We have baby clothes taking over our house and I want my house back and that will save me money as I will find things I forgot I had
