Mom-to-Mom Sale Markham FAQ's

Q. What is a Mom-to-Mom Sale?

A. A Mom-to-Mom Sale is basically a giant indoor garage sale that is only for baby and kids' items. You buy items directly from sellers just like you would at a garage sale, there is no middle man. Items that you would typically find at a sale include gently used: clothing, baby gear (mobiles, carriers, boucy chairs, exersaucers, playmats etc.), nursery decor, toys, books, games, play houses, sports equipment and furniture. Basically anything that is related to kids or babies is allowed.

Q. Is the sale indoors?

A. Yes, the sale is always indoors!

Q. How do I pay for items I buy at a Mom-to-Mom Sale?

A. Cash only! You wouldn't try to write a cheque at a garage sale would you?

Q. How do I register for a table and become a vendor?

A. Simply visit and click on the "Registering for a Table" link on the left hand side of the page and follow the directions.

Q. Do I need to buy a ticket to get in ahead of time? Do I have to buy tickets for children?

A. No, just show up and pay at the door! Children are admitted for free.

Q. Is there anything special I need to know about buying or selling at the sale?

A. Remember, it is just like a garage sale and sellers should follow guidlines set out by the Ontario Government regarding the sale of used items and that buyers should do the same. It is recommended that sellers ensure that their items for sale are not recalled and "meet current safety standards". Buyers should always check the items they are buying carefully for any defects before purchasing them. Check for recalls as well when you get home. Please visit this government link to find out more info on selling second hand goods. Check this government link for recalls of all sorts.
