Vintage Baby Shopping
Buying Vintage for your baby, is not only eco-friendly but can also help save a lot of money. Strollers, car seats, cots are all big ticket items that would otherwise put a serious dent in your wallet – buy second hand, babies outgrow everything so quickly anyway. A great place to look for second hand items is the Bangkok Expat Mothers Sale Board, Mommy’s Flea Market, BAMBI classifieds online or at Bambi’s popular Bring and Buy sales, which they organize a few times per year. Join the Bambi club as its a great resource for all things an expat mother is looking for. Also check out local Flea Markets, Vintage Furniture Stores and Thailand Craig’s List.
Make sure you also check out the Parent Vine website, it is an amazing resource for new parents in Bangkok.
