At our sales we sell nearly new (ie in good condition) baby & children's clothes from newborn up to approx. age 10, toys, books, and all sorts of equipment (including large items such as pushchairs, cots, highchairs, moses baskets), as well as maternity clothes. The exact items for sale of course vary at each sale but you can always get some great bargains!

Our sales are held at North Holmwood Village Heall, Spook Hill, North Holmwood, Dorking, Surrey, RH5 4JP.
To buy at our sales:

NCT members are entitled to priority entry at 10.00am on production of their membership card. General admission is at 10:15. If you volunteer to help at the sale you are able to shop before the sale opens! It's a great perk and anyone can volunteer to help at our sales. Please email to volunteer.

To sell at our sales:
Our sales are 'tabletop' sales. A seller pays for a table and then any money they make is theirs to keep. A limited number of tables have space for a hanging rail next to them - an additional charge is made for a rail-space and sellers have to bring their own rail. The exceptions to this are 'large items' (eg pushchairs, highchairs, moses baskets etc) which must be sold from the Large Items Area - these items are subject to a commission charge of 20% if you have a table.
You can sell large items without having a table, simply bring your items on the day and set the price (subject to 30% commission charge) 
Large items are
Cots / cot-beds / cribs / moses baskets
 Prams / buggies / strollers (see criteria below)
 Child bike seats
 Stair-gates / fireguards / bed-guards
 Highchairs
 Large outdoor toys (slides, swings, rockers, trikes, balance bikes, trampolines)
 Frame backpack child carriers (not slings)
 Children’s tables and chairs and other furniture, including easels
 Sit-in activity stations, baby walkers, ride-ons, scooters
 ‘Vibrating’ chairs or any other type of baby/toddler chair (excl bumbos)
 Bath-tubs (not bath seats)

Can you help?  We can always use help in the following ways:-

  • Putting up some leaflets publicising the sale in your area - please contact us and let us know how many and we will send them to you - we will need your name and address.
  • Bag Stuffing - this is preparing goody bags a few days in advance of the sale, ready to be given to all customers on the door.  We get together at someone's house to do this.  Many hands make light work. If you help at the bag stuffing you also gain early entry to the sale at 9.45am to shop prior to opening one of the perks of helping out!
  • Cakes - can you bake a cake and bring it along for refreshments.
  • Can you help on the day of the sale?  Helpers get 15 minutes of priority shopping time before the sale, plus can sell big equipment at zero commission, and a few smaller items on the volunteers table, if they help for minimum 3 hours.
  • Donations - If you donate clothes/equipment/toys to the organising team for us to sell on the NCT’s behalf, 100% of the money raised goes to branch to assist with our fundraising.

If you are interested in helping at the sale, have any questions about selling your items or any other questions, please email
