Our Nearly New Sales have been running locally for many years now and are a brilliant way to purchase quality goods at bargain prices. We aim to have our Nearly New Sale back in 2021, keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates.
100% powered by volunteers we transform a venue into a one day only pop-up shop like a mini department store with all of the seller goods carefully sorted into size and type and displayed for easy browsing and shopping.
We provide you with a shopping bag and then when ready we have our check-out area fully equipped with chip and pin machines.
Items for sale are entirely dependent on our sellers however you can expect maternity/baby/children's/dressing up clothes & shoes, toys, baby baths, carriers, puzzles, bouncers, bikes, cribs, prams, pottys, moses baskets, stair gates, maternity/nursing pillows, games, play mats, cots, travel systems, bedding, nursery equipment, cloth nappies, slings, ride-on's, scooters, slides, bumbo's, high chairs - the list is endless. We can't however sell certain items such as those with a plug or car seats (although sellers may offer these free of charge with a travel system).
Our sale runs for an hour and a half, however if we are ready early we may open early, the queue can be long however goes down very quickly. Lots of our volunteers are experienced parents so please feel free to ask for help or advice during the sale.
As previously mentioned we are 100% powered by volunteers and all are welcome, we offer fantastic perks such as cake, reduced commission rate for sellers and early shopping. We have many different volunteering roles on the day and you can event bring your mini volunteers along.
If you are ready to have a bit of a clear out (and help raise some money for the NCT, the UK's largest parenting charity) then maybe it's time to become a seller. Our seller registration opens approximately one month before the sale.
Numbers are limited and it costs £5 to register, we will then send you a seller guide and a spreadsheet so that you can create your own labels for your sale items and drop off at the venue on the morning of the sale.
If you would like any more information about buying, selling or volunteering then please do get in contact with us at NNS.firstname.lastname@example.org or like us on our NCT Maidstone Nearly New Sales Facebook for regular updates. We look forward to welcoming you to our sales soon
