Our NCT Nearly New Sales are a great place to save money and by shopping or selling at an NCT Nearly New Sale, you will also be helping to support parents in your local community.  

The money raised through our sales helps support local NCT community groups as well as national projects like the NCT infant feeding line, NCT campaigns and parent information. 

At our NCT Nearly New Sales you will find a wide range of quality second hand baby and maternity items. You might even be able to pick up some designer items at bargain prices!

As a small thank you for your support, we offer early entry at our sales for NCT members. Find out more about becoming an NCT member

Top tips from experienced Nearly New Sale shoppers

Come prepared!

Prioritise the things you need to get. Know your baby and child’s size and how it relates to the season’s clothes.

Remember your NCT membership details

NCT members get an early start to their shopping at all sales so don’t leave your membership number at home! Check out your local NCT Nearly New Sale for members’ opening times.​​​​​

Bring cash

Lots of sales now use chip and PIN machines to take payments, but it’s always worth bringing cash just in case, especially for cake and tea. Check the Nearly New Sale in your area to see what the payment options are.

All money raised will help fund local parent activities, our national helplines, other essential services and campaigns.
