    "We were thrilled to find these second hand markets for many of our baby’s clothes and toys and we saved so much money. We didn’t believe people when they told us babies grow so fast! For a small fee, anyone is able to sell their items in any of the villages – although some of them may have waiting lists." (KC, March 2012)
