Reduce Reuse Recycle Upcycle
Help the environment:
We all know how many clothes, toys and equipment you need for a new baby, but buying new uses up valuable natural resources. Every item you buy from an NCT Nearly New Sale is an item which isn’t going to landfill.
Priority sponsors: Eco-friendly toys, eco-friendly cleaning, recycle, upcycle
Please note that all items are sold as seen and the NCT is not responsible for the items for sale; we do our best to quality control the items and they should be 'nearly new'. If you have any concerns on the day, please raise it with a member of the team.

A FEW GENTLE REMINDERS
- Please remember that everyone involved with the running of the Nearly New Sales are volunteers…this includes all the helpers at the sale, in the café and the NNS team – who give a lot of their time for free to run the sales.
- We aim to generate a team spirit among the sellers and helpers at the sale. Please come full of enthusiasm and energy and it will be a pleasant experience for all.
- The NNS team are very interested in your feedback, suggestions and information in person or by email, but please bear in mind that they are all volunteers and fit the role around their families, jobs and lives.
- The sales are run as a service to parents, to help with the recycling of nearly new children’s items, and to raise money for the NCT.
- SPREAD THE WORD … without buyers your items will not sell! Like and share our Facebook posts, put up posters, hand out flyers, it should be in your interest. Our branch volunteers can only do so much. ☺
