Kid’s Swap Meet

I’m not sure how the retailers who sell new baby/toddler clothes and toys and stuff actually stay in business with the growth of Craigslist, thrift stores, and swap meets dedicated to kid related stuff. Having a kid (or two or three) is expensive and you are wise to find ways to economize and help recycle baby/kid stuff. So go to a swap meet!

If you live in or nearby Coquitlam, this coming weekend (February 22nd, 2015) there is a kid’s swap meet scheduled to be held at the Poirier Community Centre. The kid swapping runs from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

The meet is a great place to buy gently used kids’ clothes, books, toys and more. Admission to the event is free and you can drop by anytime between 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. to stock up on affordable kids’ items for the spring.

It is important to note that actually swapping kids with other parents is frowned upon and even strictly not allowed in some cases.
