Nearly New Sales
Bag a Bargain at the Clapham NCT Nearly New Sale
The Clapham NCT can help you beat the credit crunch and save money on quality baby clothes, toys, books and equipment. Funds raised by the sale allow the Clapham NCT to continue offering vital local antenatal and postnatal activities and services, and allow the national charity to train new antenatal teachers, breastfeeding counsellors and postnatal leaders, and to operate essential support lines including the pregnancy and breastfeeding helplines.
So, please support the Clapham NCT by:
1) Shopping at our sales, eating our cakes and drinking our coffees & teas
2) Booking a sale table or let us sell your large equipment items - ideal if you need to create more space at home (Cost £30/table money to NCT, you keep whatever you make on the day. Large equipment sold on commission basis - 30% to NCT, 70% to seller. Further seller guidance and booking form in related documents section to the bottom right of this page).
3) Volunteering to help with the running of the sale on the day. It is great fun!
4) Having a Nearly New Sale advertising board displayed outside your property for 3 weeks prior to the sale. Local estate agents Hamptons International have provided these boards for our 2012 & 2013 sales and it is an easy and high profile fundraising opportunity for the Clapham NCT and our Nearly New Sales.

First timers guide to the Clapham NCT Nearly New Sale
- On arrival, you will find two queues outside - one for members and one for non-members. When the doors open, we allow members priority entry into our sale. Prior to doors opening we will be selling teas, coffee and delicious homemade cakes to the queues from our mobile refreshments trolley.
- Upon entry and after paying your entry fee, you will be given a goody bag to hold your shopping. Additional bags can be obtained from the NCT info table in the foyer. Don't forget to visit the NCT info table to pick up back issues of our branch magazine, obtain information about our antentatal and postnatal events and activities or just chat to members of the branch team.
- There are two sale rooms: the door immediately to your right on entry takes you to the main seller hall where you will find individual sellers, selling clothes, books, small toys and equipment items; and if you pass through the foyer the room on the left is where we sell large equipment items (prams, cots, high chairs, safety equipment, larger toys, bathtime stuff, carriers) on a commission basis on behalf of individual sellers. Once the sale quietens down, this room usually becomes our cafe and feeding area.
- Please note many sellers will only accept cash and there are NOT facilities for paying by card.
- The sale is a buggy free zone, but we have ample secure outdoor buggy storage (don't forget those raincovers if it is wet!). You might find it easier to bring your baby in a sling or carrier.
- Our sales are always very popular and can get a bit crowded first thing as people look for large equipment bargains. We recommend coming along a bit later on if you are just interested in browsing the clothing stalls.
- Good luck and happy shopping!
