How To Start
To get started, simply send us an email or give us a call.
For clothing and shoes, we will arrange a time and date to meet. This may be at our Lake Hayes Estate address, or in some cases, we can meet you elsewhere. We ask that all items are cleaned and ready for a new home.
Little Trading Post will sort through your items, photograph them, list them on the website, promote and when sold, we will liaise with the new buyer. The next time you hear from us is when the item is sold and money deposited into your bank account.
For larger items like prams or bikes, these items are kept at your home. We will ask for photos and a few details via email.
Here is a list of the items we are currently selling:
Baby and children's pre-loved clothing
Shoes - all types, including sport and dance shoes
Uniforms - dance, school, sports, etc.
Costume - fancy dress clothing
Nursery equipment - cots, decorative items, change tables, blankets, baby carrier (front packs) etc.
Prams - all shapes and sizes welcome
Sporting Equipment - skies, ski boots, bikes, scooters, balance bikes
We ask that items are in a good second-hand condition. We are happy to sell items individually or as bundles.
Don't forget that sorting is part of the service - feel free to drop off your bags.
If you have an item to sell that does not fit into the above categories, still get in touch as we may be able to help or possibly create a new category.
Your items will remain on the Little Trading Post website for a minimum of 3 months, in some cases longer. If your items do not sell, they can either be collected or we will donate them to a local charity.
What Does This Cost & When Do I Get Paid?
It is absolutely free to list on Little Trading Post.
You are only charged a service fee when your item is sold.
Our service fee is 30% of the final sale price, with a minimum of $4 per item/bundle.
All fees are in NZ dollars.
Once your item sells, we will deposit your payment into your allocated bank account. We will deposit payments on the 15th and 28th of each month.
