Valerie Pierre is the powerhouse behind Mommy R&R – a blog and events company that caters to momma getting her ‘me’ time! Valerie is hosting a flea market in Bushwick this weekend and we had some questions for her ++ she was generous enough to give us some tickets to the event! (See below to enter)
WPK: What is Mommy R+R?
VP: I started Mommy R+R because as a stay at home mom of two I saw there where plenty of mommy and baby meet ups but no active mommy to mommy meet ups. There were no groups for moms to come together to enjoy a little “me time” without their children. Through organized events I host each month the purpose is to allow local moms to release the stress from their everyday routines in order to feel rejuvenated and recharged.
WPK: Why host a kid’s flea market?
VP: As parents we’re often heard saying, “we have so many left over items from our child(ren) what are we going to do with all of it?” As a parent who has said those very words, I thought it would be an awesome idea to host an event of this type to allow families to purge all the their children’s outgrown and long forgotten items. And with the holiday’s rapidly approaching it’ll be a great way to rid your homes of the old in order to make way for the new.
VP: This event will feature 10 tables with reasonably priced items ranging from baby & kid clothing, toys, books, accessories, walkers, high chairs, strollers and other gear, in addition to changing tables and cribs. All of these items are gently used and ready for new homes. Perfect for any family who enjoys bargain hunting!
VP: The ticket price for this event is $5 for adults and free for children. In addition, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the American Cancer Society for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. There will be snacks, beverages and music for all ages.
WPK: When and Where will the event take place?
VP: The Kid’s Flea Market will take place on Sunday, October 26 at Bat Haus located at 279 Starr Street in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn from11:30am-3:30pm. The event is accessible by L train to Jefferson Street.
