Worried about the cost of kitting out your child for the first seven years? Is your home full of clothes, toys and equipment that your kids have grown out of?
NCT Nearly New Sales are the perfect solution, offering affordable essentials and accessories for you and your family, helping parents recoup costs in selling pre-loved items, while fundraising to support other parents in Teesside and the UK. You'll also be helping the environment by recycling your family's old belongings or buying pre-loved items.
Coming to the sale
Teesside Nearly New Sales are ticketed sales rather than table top sales - a one-stop pop up shop. This means that the sale hall looks like a shop with clothing, toys, equipment set out in age related/purpose related tables/rails, so that you can go to look at the stuff you want to buy, rather than sift through 50 tables of varying items. It makes buying quicker and more pleasant. You can pay for all the goods in one go, even using your card. No haggling, no pressure, browse all you want.
There will also be a café to rest at (eat cake at) at the sale. Or to plonk partners/friends/babies/buggies at whilst your scour the sale.
Become a seller
To become a seller you need to register for a seller number. The fee to register is refundable after the sale.
