Little Pickles: Southsea

on July 4, 2013

Yesterday I went to another Little Pickles Market, this time with Elvis. It was his first!

We got a Gymini Play and Kick playgym for just £5 and a wooden train set (complete) from John Lewis for half price at £15! What bargains!

We do already have a play gym that we keep in the nursery, but when we saw one that easily collapses for such a great price, I wanted it purely for downstairs. The Fisher Price one upstairs doesn’t collapse down any and space is always a premium in our living room. And as it’s now Thursday when we bought the bargain on Saturday, Elvis loves it. I’ve had very little sleep for two nights in a row and feel physically exhausted so while I’m stuffing my face he’s hopefully tiring himself out on the Tiny Love Gymini Play and Kick.

The train set is obviously not needed for a few years!

As for the market itself, it was another one for us. In Southsea and very close to major bus routes, it has a very decent sized car park and is next to an infant school, which unfortunately had an event going on and I think the school had filled up the sports center car park. Similar to the Mountbatten markets, there’s loads of space inside – handy as this was the first one where we had Elvis and had to manoeuvre him in his pushchair around. The market in Cosham is incredibly tiny and cramped. It’s probably not that much further away than the Cosham market though and I’d go again.

I still avoid looking for clothes at them though – far too much hassle and there are always more girls than boys clothes!

And it’s now just over a week until the next market. At which I will remember my entry cards!

    I LOVE wooden train sets!! We got my daughter one when she was maybe 3 yrs old, and both her younger brothers have enjoyed it as well. They don’t fall apart! 😀
    Glad you enjoyed your time there!
