With regret, the branch has come to the decision to cancel the upcoming Nearly New Tabletop Sale due to be held on 25th March.
We have been made aware of a very similar sale that is taking place in Beckenham on the same day. We work hard to promote our sales so that we have plenty of buyers through the door to snap up our sellers' bargains - we feel that the presence of another sale on the same date would jeopardise this footfall and therefore have the potential to impact on sellers' takings.
Registration payments will be refunded in full by next week. Our Advertising Coordinator will be in touch with advertisers shortly.
We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused here. We will be in touch in due course to confirm our plans for a ticketed sale, which we hope you will consider taking part in.
Nearly New Sales are a great opportunity to sell or buy good quality baby and children’s clothes, nursery equipment, toys, books and maternity wear, all in one place making your shopping (and selling) quick and easy! Baby items are often in good condition as they are not used for long. We hope to save these from the scrap heap, enable sellers to get some money for their items, buyers to get some bargains and raise funds for the branch. Seller and Buyer information is below, and you may find the Buyer FAQs useful.
Every Nearly New Sale is run entirely by volunteers - so every little helps in making a difference to the success of the day and to the money made for future branch activities. Please check out how you can help.
Registration for sellers is open now here. Alternatively, contact our Nearly New Sale Team on firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that sale goods should be 'nearly new' rather than secondhand; we won’t sell items that are damaged, broken, stained or marked. Everything has to have all its parts and pieces and be in excellent working condition. A seller pack will be available once registration opens with details of what items can be sold and tips on how best to present and price them. We hope you get a great price for your items, and free up some much-needed space!
Sales are open 10.30am-12.30pm (10:15 entry for members). Please arrive in plenty of time as there is often a queue. It is £1.50 single/£2 couple entry.
Please park on the road rather than in the venue car park. If you need assistance to your car please ask one of the volunteers. Please note that we are very tight for space and so do not always allow buggies into the sale hall (unless the baby is sleeping); if this is the case we will have a buggy park but please bring your baby in a sling if you can. Whilst you can bring your older children, it is crowded and somewhat hectic so it may be better to arrange alternate childcare if possible to maximise your shopping!
Tabletop sales: These sales are cash only and it will help the sellers if you bring plenty of change. As you will be buying directly from the sellers, you can ask questions about the items, and you may find you can haggle - especially towards the end of the sale! Tea, coffee and homemade cakes are for sale in the cafe area.
We look forward to welcoming you to our sales and hope that you pick up some great items!
We would like to thank Big Yellow Storage for their sponsorship of NCT. We could not run our sales without them!
