The cost of kitting out your baby or toddler can run into thousands.  NCT Nearly New Sales are the perfect solution – top quality baby ad children’s clothes and equipment at bargain prices straight from their loving owners while fundraising to support other parents in the UK.  You’ll also be helping the environment by recycling your family’s old belongings or buying pre-loved items and therefore preventing them going to landfill.
NCT members can get in 15 minutes earlier than non-members so if you’re queuing and feeling you might be missing out, grab one of our helpers and join on the spot to jump the queue!
The NCT organises these sales so you can sell your outgrown and unwanted items and recoup some of the cost. 

Our Next Sale:

Our Nearly New Sales are currently on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we would normally hold two sales per year:

- Spring/Summer Nearly New Sale - March

- Autumn/Winter Nearly New Sale - September

- Christmas Toy Nearly New Sale - November

All sales take place on a Sunday, 1-2.30pm (NCT members access from 1pm, non-members from 1.15pm), at St. Leonards Comprehensive School, Durham DH1 4NG

At this time we are unable to confirm when our next sale will take place, the team are hoping to be able to hold at least one sale before the end of 2021.


Our sales include a separate ‘Chillout Zone’ where you can sit and celebrate your bargains with a hot drink and slice of homemade cake.  There will be a colouring in table for the children and a range of stalls hosted by local businesses.
