What is the NCT Nearly New Sale?

At the NCT sale we sell maternity goods, nursery equipment, highchairs, pushchairs, mosses baskets, cots, new born, baby and toddler clothes (up to 2 years), and children's clothes (up to 6 years), swim wear, shoes, baby and children's toys, books and DVD's at a high quality (‘nearly new’) and a good/bargain price. We run the sale to help those who wish to re-cycle their no longer needed baby/children’s clothes and items and those who wish to buy good quality clothes and items at a bargain price.

You can be involved in the sale as a seller, buyer, volunteer or any combination of these.

What is to know about being a seller at the Nottingham NCT Nearly New Sale?

  • As a seller you must read the seller pack and the Nearly New Sale Principles . The seller pack contains information on how to sell and how the sale is run. The Nearly New Sale principles contain information on what we can and cannot sell.
  • NCT Nottingham usually runs ticketed sales which means you register, we sent you labels, you label all your items and deliver them to us. We then sell your items for you. At the end of the sale you collect your unsold items.
  • We charge a £10 registration fee and a 30% commission. Of the £10 registration fee £5 are non-refundable and £5 are refundable upon receival of your goods on the day of the sale. Funds raised with the 30% commission goes to the local work of the charity. You can reduce the commission to 25% if you volunteer and help us run the sale on the day. You will receive your money (your takings minus the commission) with two to four weeks of the sale.
  • We will start sending out seller packs including a reminder of our terms and conditions and the labels 6 week prior to the sale. If you need your seller pack earlier, please email us (nns.nottingham@nct.org.uk).
  • As a seller, please consider volunteering as well. We need volunteers in order to successfully run the sale.

What is to know about being a buyer/customer at the NCT Nearly New Sale?

  • The sale runs from 10.00 am until 11.30 am. NCT members gain early entry at 9.45 am. It is worth it being early or in time as good items go quickly.
  • Entry fee is £1 per adult, children are free.
  • Good are categorized in areas, e.g. baby and children toys, books, clothes etc.
  • We accept cash and card payments at the tills.
  • You receive a Goody Bag if you leave the venue. Local businesses advertise their business with us in their plus you get free samples!
  • The sale is staffed by volunteers who tidy up, organise goods, run the tills and help you out if you have questions.

What is to know about being a volunteer at the NCT Nearly New Sale?

  • We have two volunteer shifts, an early one from 7.30 am until 10.30 am and a later one from 10.00 am until 13.30 pm. You can sign up for either or both. Upon registering as a volunteer, you can opt for volunteer tasks like e.g. helping at the tills or in the main hall. In the early shift you will most likely be helping to set up the venue and organising the good into categories and help at the tills or in the main hall. In the later shift you will help with the tills but also with the tidying up.
  • As a volunteer of either or both shifts you gain access to the pre-view sale at 9.30 am and so get the first chance on all the bargains!
  • It is worth it, you help running an event which helps families to re-cycle their goods and others to buy good quality items for a bargain price.
  • Raised funds go towards the local work of the NCT.
