So? Do we talk about the gifts that we didn't expect AT ALL, and for which we said in a strange voice " oh thank you, you shouldn't have... »
In your home too, Santa Claus got the wrong fireplace and here you are stuck with another teapot, a sweater that would look better on your great aunt or a "who is who" game for the fifth time?
Don't panic, there are many solutions in Belgium today to relieve you from this unwanted surplus and sell your Christmas gifts.
Family Time Saver has listed some great tips to help you in this quest for decluttering.
Toys and family clothes
Online : Vinted has become THE website to sell parents and children clothes. The easy usage made it successful: a picture, a price, a shipment and voilà (also available on App.)
In store : more and more shops in Belgium offer to buy children clothes, games and baby equipment. Here are some brands you can go to:
- La Ritournelle in Schaerbeek
- Little Marquis in Namur
- Pêle-Mêle in Ixelles, Bruxelles et Waterloo *
- BBKaline in Braine-L’Alleud
- Chez Bingo in Woluwé St Lambert
- Petit Kiwi in Eghezée
- Second chapitre in Ottignies
- Happinest in Auderghem
- Boutique Ramd'Âm in Namur *
* only books - children books - Mangas - Comics - Cds - Vinyls - Dvds - Board games
Do you want to extend the Christmas spirit🎄 and the holiday season? A very simple idea: contact the pediatric departments of hospitals. Ask if they need gifts or toys and, bingo, make everyone happy: you and the children in the pediatric department 😉
You received a mobile phone or a computer but it is not really the one you need? You can sell it as well!
Online: go immediately to Back Market which allows the resale of all electronic equipment: GSM, computers, smart watch, consoles, tablets, etc. Same principle as Vinted and as easy to use. Back Market is present in 5 European countries (France, Spain, Germany, Italy and Belgium)
On Facebook: the groups "Vente iPhone Belgique" which has more than 17000 members and "vente et achat de GSM uniquement Belgique" with more than 21000 members have become two hubs for the resale of mobile phones in Belgium.
On line and in store: no need to present troc.com, the reference site for the sale of objects of all kinds.
On Facebook: for those who don't know yet, we strongly advise you to register on the group "100% déco" (53000 members!) that allows you to resell paintings, vases, any decorative object from which you want to part without regrets.
In store: Pêle-Mêle of course but also Bibliopolis in Berchem-Sainte-Agathe, Wavre, Mons, Liège and Namur or La Bourse aux livres in Tournai.
Second hand shops : Troc.com, Cash Converters, Cash Express
Second hand websites : ebay, 2ème main,
- Clothes swapping groups like Vide dressing Vip femmes with more than 27000 members
- Facebook"Market Place" where all offers can be classified by category.
