Do also keep an eye out on mama-chat groups, district-based Facebook groups, etc.

- Child & Baby Stuff Buy, Sell, Swap Hong Kong – Also a swap and sell Facebook page. See the Swap-it Facebook page here.

How To Make Your Own Halloween Costumes In Hong Kong
If you’re a crafty mama, why not make your own Halloween costume? Shop in thrift stores, fabric markets and stationery shops and see what you find and what you can rustle together. With some creativity and a bit of artistic licence (or a lot of it!), you can make a wide range of costumes.
We’re always in awe of the awesome ideas that come from talented mums (read this for inspiration on bucket costumes!) in the city. The best part about making your own costumes is that they can always be repurposed for other occasions. One Sassy Mama has used a Gruffalo costume for Halloween, World Book Day and a themed birthday party celebration!
