Information for sellers
For 2019 the structure of our sales has changed. We are now running our sales on a Sunday as research in the local area showed that this was the more preferable day. Further to that we have combined our sales to allow sellers to sell clothes, toys and equipment at all sales.
In order to reduce costs as a branch we are now sending all sellers packs by email which will need to be printed by the seller. If you are unable to access a printer please email email@example.com and we will make arrangements to get a printed pack to you (this will incur an additional charge).
Our sales are run by volunteers. If you are able to help us out on the day we would be hugely grateful. The volunteer shift runs from 9:30am until 3:30pm and a lunch is provided. All volunteers that stay for the full shift are also able to shop the sale early and, if you are a seller and a volunteer you benefit from an extra 10% commission on your sold items.
If you wish to volunteer at the sale, please click here.
To order your seller's pack(s), please click here .
Ordering is available 4-6 weeks prior to each sale and closes the Sunday before the sale - sellers packs are sale specific so please do not order early. Packs cost £2.00 each.
Please note, you will be charged for each seller's pack even if you do not use it.
A seller's pack contains:
60 labels which are unique to you and the sale. (If you order more than one pack, you will simply receive an additional set of labels).
Once you have ordered your sellers pack please allow up to 7 days for our volunteers to send you an email confirmation. When you receive the email it will include:
* Nearly New Sale - Sellers letter
* Nearly New Sale - Sellers list
* Nearly New Sale - NCT Regulations
* Nearly New Sale - Drop off agreement
* Details of when you must drop off your items for sale
* General information about the sale
* Unsuitable items
* How to fill in your labels
* The location of the venue
You will receive 70% of the sales value of the items you have sold. The remaining 30% will go to the NCT to help support other new parents and parents-to-be. If you volunteer as well as sell at the sale then you will receive 80% of the sales value of your items that have sold.
It is preferable if all clothes are on hangers. Please note hangers will not be returned for sold items.
The 2019 sales will be held at:
All Saints Academy
We are always looking for volunteers to help run the sale. Tasks to be undertaken include:
* Taking entry fees
* Setting up tables and sorting items
* Running pay stations
* Clearing up!
By helping at a sale you get the perk of getting the first pick of sale items - but you do need to give up a few hours of your time.
If you are interested in volunteering to help at a sale, please click here prior to the sale.
For any other queries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please help publicise the NNS by displaying a poster at your local nursery, playgroup, doctors surgery, office, supermarket or local shop. You can download a poster from the related documents section on the event page for each sale. This can be accessed by clicking on the relevant date at the top of this page. The more people we get to come to the sale, the more likely your items will sell!
You do not need to be an NCT member to sell or volunteer at the sales. Volunteers shop early! Selling is open to everyone, not just members. You will receive 70% of the value of the items sold, minus the cost of the seller's pack. Each seller's pack contains 60 pre-printed unique labels and a full set of instructions. Seller's packs are available for ordering 4-6 weeks before each sale and this facility closes the Sunday before the sale.
