NCT Nearly New Sales are our charity’s largest fundraiser, raising over half a million pounds every year to help support parents in their communities and through UK wide projects.

Sellers at a nearly new sale

Our indoor Nearly New Sales are currently on hold. We hope to be starting some outdoor sales over the summer.

 

By selling at an NCT Nearly New Sale you are helping our volunteers to provide local support to parents, as well as funding our national services including our support line, campaigning work and evidence-based research.

Buy at a Nearly New Sale

NCT Nearly New Sales provide a great opportunity to pick up quality nearly new baby and children's clothes, toys and equipment at a fraction of the price you would pay on the high street.

Our sales provide the opportunity for parents to browse a wide range of nearly new items.

If you can’t find what you are looking for, most sales also have a cafe where you can enjoy refreshments.

Sell at a Nearly New Sale

If your home is full of clothes, toys and equipment that your kids have grown out of, we can help. Our Nearly New Sales give you the chance to clear out your clutter and make some money.

Only NCT Nearly New Sales offer two models of sales depending on which model your local team of volunteers has chosen to run.

  • Table-top sales charge a flat fee for a table and no other commission is payable.
  • Ticketed sales are more convenient if, as a seller, you cannot stay for the duration of the sale. Sellers are charged a small commission for having their goods sold for them by the local NCT volunteer team.

Anyone can sell at our Nearly New Sales, you don't have to be a member of the charity. Places often fill up quickly so it's best to register early.

Read our Nearly New Sale Principles which list what you can and can’t sell at all ticketed and table-top sales. If you are selling a sling, you will need to attach this note to any sling being sold.

How it works

Each team of volunteers will run their sale slightly differently, so commission rates or organisational systems may vary. Those that are run on a commission basis, have sellers receiving around 70% commission on items they sell on their sale, but other sales will charge a set fee for a table or rail and sellers keep 100% of profits made.

The commission you pay will go towards NCT’s work supporting new parents. Some sales will have a discounted commission for sellers who volunteer at the sale. Find out more about volunteering.

Sellers are asked to set their own prices for items, but your local team of volunteers may have some tips or guidelines to help you with this. Contact the team of volunteers near you to find out when their next sale will be and to register your interest in becoming a seller.
