🛒 Here's all you need to know as a shopper.

The sale will take place in the main school hall at Invicta Grammar School.

1:15pm - doors open for NCT members (valid membership required)
1.30pm - door open for non members who purchased Queue Buster tickets
1:45pm - doors open for non-members
3:15pm - Doors close

Admission is £2 per person charity donation at the door, payable by everyone.

Our sales are different to most baby markets, as we don't have stalls or stallholders. Instead, all the items are quality checked by our volunteers and laid out like a department store. This allows shoppers to easily browse for exactly what they need, and then pay for items all together at our till points. Payment for your shopping can be made in cash or by credit/debit card. Don't forget to bring your reusable bags to take your bargains home.

As normal we will have our refreshments stall selling hot drinks and home made cakes and baked goods.

** Ample free parking is found at the rear of the hall **

Are you coming to the sale with your little one?

Here is all you need to know about shopping at our sale with children and what we have.

● baby changing facilities
● an area with comfortable chairs to feed your little ones
● buggy park area inside
● refreshments area and colouring sheets
● helpful volunteers are on hand to help carry bags
● holding area to off load shopping, so you can continue shopping

Due to the high volume of people in the sale room at peak times we will be limiting the about of prams in the hall. This will be a maximum of TWO at anyone time and will be operating a one in one out. As the sale becomes quieter we will increase the about of prams allowed in.
If your little one is asleep, really cant come out the pram we are offering any "buggy watchers" free hot drinks in our refreshments area. This will mean that one of you start shopping when the sale opens and grab the bargains.

See you there for all the bargains!
