PLEASE NOTE our Nearly New Sales will be back in 2021!
In light of the complex guidance and uncertainty surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic we need to let you know that unfortunately, the decision has been made to cancel all remaining Nearly New Sales scheduled for 2020.
While we know that guidance around large gatherings could change, we know that requirements for social distancing and hygiene are likely to remain complex and successful sales need lots of time to organise, even without a pandemic to contend with.
We understand that this will be very disappointing for many of our valued sellers and customers, but we're confident that it's the right decision at this time. We hope to be back up and running from early next year so please keep an eye on our socials for any updates!
If you would like to sell or buy quality, nearly new clothes, toys and equipment, then please check our Facebook page for further updates and we'll let you know once we are able to begin our Nearly New Sales again.
Please see below for how our Nearly New Sales have run previously, there are likely to be changes but we hope to be able to keep as close to this format as we can.
You’ll find everything from maternity wear, nursery and travel equipment, baby wear up to children’s clothes (up to aged 10), through to games, puzzles and toys, DVD’s, books and fancy dress. Whether you’re looking for something for baby or for your growing family there’s bound to be something for you, come and grab a bargain! We’ll also have a café selling drinks and delicious homemade cakes.

Would you like to Sell at our Nearly New Sale?
The Nearly New Sales are a fantastic opportunity for you to sell those items your children have outgrown, thus giving them a new lease of life and clearing the way for new items. Registration for sellers opens approximately 8 weeks prior to the sale and once you have registered you will receive your seller number from the Intrabiz system, with Sellers Information and Labels on here, under 'Related Documents' so you can prepare your pre-loved items ready for the sale.
When our next NNS is Open, if you have registered previously you will automatically receive a link to register directly.
If you are new to selling at our Nearly New Sales please email: NNS.AshbyBurtonAndCoalville@nct.org.uk
Let us know that you are New to selling and we will send you a link to register.
Would you like to Help at our Nearly New Sale?
We always need volunteers to help run the sales, without them the sales just wouldn’t happen. We need people to help set up the rooms ready for the sale, help sellers put out their items, help in rooms throughout the sale, sorting unsold items at the end of the sale and getting the hall back in to pre-sale condition, plus many more roles.
- For those volunteering on Friday evening you get to put your items out before everyone else.
- For those all day on Saturday you get access to the Pre-view sale.
- If you volunteer on Saturday AND are a Seller you may also benefit from a reduced commission.
So there are great benefits from volunteering and we always have lots of fun. For more information please see Volunteer Info Nov19, under 'Related Documents'.
If you’re interested in volunteering please email NNS.AshbyBurtonAndCoalville@nct.org.uk

Information for Advertisers
Do you have a business and would like to advertise in our goody bags that each buyer receives?
Our sales provide an excellent opportunity for local companies to advertise to buyers at the sale. Advertising opportunities at previous sales have included a trade stand in the sale or flyers within up to 200 goody bags given out on the day. If you’d like to register it’s £20 for 200 leaflets, £30 for a trade table (there’s only a few available as space is at a premium), or £40 for both, please email NNS.AshbyBurtonAndCoalville@nct.org.uk to find out more.
We run these events to provide a service for those wishing to make a little money and recycle their no-longer-needed baby/children items to a good home and those who wish to buy good quality items at a less-than-market-value price, whilst also contributing to NCT’s work supporting families in the Ashby, Burton and Coalville area and across the UK.
