“$300 worth of products going at $15! Everything must go!” Those were the first words I heard as I made my way through the massive crowd gathered at O’Leary’s Sports Bar & Grill at 10.30am on a drizzly Saturday morning. Located at the Singapore Flyer; it was an event for selling pre-loved baby merchandise organized by Stork’s Nest Singapore, a Facebook mothers support group set up by Jani Combrink in 2012.
Held from 10am to 1.30pm on Saturday, 7 September 2013, the event served two main purposes; one of which was to sell things that were loved but outgrown, or in other words, items that were “tried and tested to work” by mummies and babies. It was mainly attended by expat families who were used to scouring for items in charity shops back home. Many find that childcare products are expensive in Singapore, especially since babies tend to outgrow their clothes very quickly. Secondly, the not-for-profit event was held to raise funds for a Stork’s Nest Singapore supported charity, which would be determined at a later date.

Kate is an entrepreneur who wanted to share her knowledge of baby signing with parents in Singapore. Baby signing allows parents to learn to communicate clearly with their babies even before they can speak. Pictured here with her children, she conducts classes to teach parents how to use sign language to "talk" to their babies. More information can be found on her website, or on the Facebook group.
