We are very happy to say that our next Nearly New Sale will be going ahead on Sunday March 12, 2017 at St Gregory the Great School, Cricket Road in East Oxford, OX4 3DR. (Here is how you find it).
This time we will be trying some changes. We usually open seller registration to all and hold back places for those who can volunteer. This sale we will initially only offer seller places to those who can volunteer, if we are able to recruit enough help we will open seller registration to all later. We are also trialing new timings with an earlier start to the day, a shorter sale and an earlier finish.
We will also be updating our sale Facebook page at www.facebook.com/NNSOxford/ so you may want to keep an eye on that for news and tips.
Please advertise the sale as widely as you can – there is a PDF poster for you to print and JPG to share online. If you can use any leaflets for local groups, let us know and we can provide some for you. We also have great opportunities for advertising if you have a business you'd like to let our shoppers know about.
Donate: We are collecting items to sell items at the sale in aid of NCT. If you have anything you'd like to donate for us to sell, please get in touch for details of how to get items to us in the week before the sale.
Volunteering: For the sale to be a success, we really need your help and support.
To say thank you, we run a pre-sale so you can shop at the sale before the rush begins!
You can help by:
Volunteering on the day of the sale or the afternoon before – helping for a three-hour shift on the Saturday or Sunday is busy, fun and hugely appreciated. We also have a few jobs to do outside of the sale weekend.
All of us on the NNS team have children and understand childcare can be tricky, but we do have jobs which can be done with a little one with you if they are amenable or jobs to be done at home outside the sale weekend.
If you just want to volunteer please use the link here
If you are planning to sell please follow the seller link below to also volunteer.
Selling: To sell your baby clothes and equipment at the NCT Nearly New Sale, you need to download and read the seller’s pack and then fill in the online registration form here.
To get enough help to run the sale well, we’ll initially only offer seller places for those who can volunteer with us. We are also offering a reduction in commission for volunteers who are able to help for three shifts or more.
