As a frugal Family we love to visit Charity shops and Carboot sales, but as the weather has not been so great we were delighted to be invited along to Rosebuds Preloved Bump, Baby & Children’s Market In Newton Abbot to see what they had to offer.
The event was held at DCA Hall, Newton Abbot College, Exeter Road in Newton Abbot, the site had ample parking and has pushchair/ wheelchair access.
There are various of dates and locations for Rosebuds Preloved Bump, Baby & Children’s Market upcoming events.
A little about Rosebuds Preloved Bump, Baby & Children’s Markets

The Children were really excited to see what Preloved items they could get with their £3.00 pocket money.
We arrived at 10 am the hall was packed with stalls bursting with vibrant brightly coloured toys, clothes, and books that drew the children in!.
Considering it was snowing in the morning I was surprised to see such a good turn out. We spent a good hour browsing around the stalls, picking out bargains, having a go on the bouncy castle, eating cake and drinking coffee… which made it a pretty Fun, Frugal Family morning out.
There were also some local trade stalls

My three came back with 6 books a bespoke bookmark, teddy and a purse, and they only spent £3.60 in total! which is a bargain. I, on the other hand, bought lots of cakes and biscuits to take home as the snow was setting in.
The event ended early due to the snow coming in so quickly..the Hall Management team made the decision to close the Hall.
So to round up what we thought of Rosebuds Preloved Bump, Baby & Children’s Market, It was a really great morning, Indoor markets are a fantastic idea, as even if its raining or windy outside you can still carry on with your bargain hunting.
The Children were happy with their finds (and they looked around quietly for at least 40 minutes) there was a good selection of items (pregnancy to 8 years), all items were very reasonably priced and most stalls were up for a bit of bartering.
You could easily pick up an outfit (top, trousers and cardy) for your child for less than £4.00! , Which is a huge saving ! if you were buying new, an outfit could easily cost you £20 upwards.
Having three young children of my own, I know first hand how expensive buying new can be and in all reality, they outgrow it so quickly or get bored of playing with the item.
Buying Preloved items, not only helps your pocket but helps the environment too!.
Liane is creating a much needed and vital service to South Devon. I’m sure with her lovely personality and “Go get it” attitude, this lovely little business will go from strength to strength.
The next event is on 20 May at 10:00–12:00 at King Edward VI Community College, Ashburton Road, TQ9 5JX Totnes.
