    Default Selling my cloth nappies?

    Hi all, after some tips!

    I'm thinking of selling my stash of cloth nappies, I have about 40. I'm just not using them frequently with my 2nd daughter now she's older and fights every nappy change, and could use the drawer space.

    Is there a market for 2nd hand mcns (these are Bubblebubs brand, not Chinese cheapies) or am I wasting my time?
    Gumtree or facebook?
    Individually or in lots of 10?

    Or would a charity take them as a last resort? I'd rather try and sell them first they cost me a small fortune, I don't think I saved any money at all, just the environment lol.

    Anyone had any success? Thank you!

    My sister sold hers on gumtree.

    If they don't sell, would you consider donating to charity? I saw one advertised recently who are asking for bras and cloth nappies for women in a third world country. I can find the link if you are interested.

    Yes please. I don't want to throw them away! I'd rather they go to good use!

    Link is here:

    http://www.upliftbras.org/

    I've just reread the their home page and unfortunately it probably won't suit you as they only accept cloth nappies from drop off locations in Victoria.

    I've always sold on gumtree and it's been fine. What about a Facebook post on your own page and ask it to be shared. You may have friends that might even offer to buy them or have a garage sale and clear out a heap of stuff

    Default Selling my cloth nappies?

    Just an update- yesterday I sold my stash for $150 on gumtree 👍

    Facebook I got zero interest.

    There was a frustrating amount of people who messaged and said they were interested and then either didn't live local or then gave me their address to post it - even though I specified no post pick up only - seriously would of cost a fortune and a massive hassle packing it as I threw in things like boxes of liners etc

    It took about 3 weeks to wait for someone who took the whole lot.

    Really pleased 😁
