Nearly New Sales

Open to everyone and products for maternity and children up to 10 years old.

The perfect place to buy second-hand baby gear and sell things you no longer need.

Sellers receive 70% of the selling price and the rest goes to supporting the NCT. 

NCT members have access to an exclusive pre-sale, a great way to get the best bargains! 


   Next Nearly New Sale coming up on:  

  • Sunday 28th April 2019, 11:30am to 1:30pm
    • at Bells Sports Centre, Perth, PH1 5HS.


To buy at the sale it is £1 entry, children free. NCT members get early entry at 11:15am. Volunteers also get pre-sale access, so contact if you want to volunteer to help run the sale.


To sell at the sale you need to register as a seller, the cost is £3. There is a limit to how many sellers can participate in the sale, so if you know you want to sell, click 'Interested' on the Event on Facebook to be alerted when registration is open.

You are sent labels to mark up the prices for your items and some guidelines as to what you can sell and how to bring your items along, so make sure you read the information you are sent.

The link to register as a seller will be available here when registration opens.
