Information about the Sale
You do not have to be an NCT member to attend or sell at our sales.
10:15am - priority entrance for NCT Members (valid membership cards must be shown).
10:30am-12:00pm - general public.
Please can you leave pushchairs and buggies at home due to lack of space. If bringing babies we’d appreciate it if you could carry them in a sling. There is plenty of free parking. Entrance minimum £1 donation.
Come along and treat yourself to some excellent bargains: children’s clothes, toys and equipment. For all the latest news on our sales and to post questions or suggestions, join our Facebook group Stroud Valleys NCT Nearly New Sale.
Selling at Our Sale
To sell at a sale, you need to download and read the Seller’s Pack document, then register online here. Please make sure you understand what you need to do – can you meet the drop off and pick up times, are you aware of the items that we cannot sell at the sale? If you are happy that you want to sell, you then need to register and pay a small fee (£2.50) for a seller’s number. Note: If you've sold at one of our last two sales and register with the same details, you will receive the same seller number. If not, you will receive the next available seller number.
Registration operates on a first-come first-served basis. Registration is only accepted online and opens approximately 6 weeks before our next sale date. Registrations are limited, and you must register to get a seller number which is required to sell at our sale. You can get notification of future registration opening dates by joining our mailing list (please send an email to NNS.StroudValleys@nct.org.uk) or by following our Facebook group (Stroud Valleys NCT Nearly New Sale).
Sellers failing to collect unsold items may be fined/banned at the discretion of the committee.
Volunteers at Our Sale
Sign up to volunteer here.
We've changed our volunteer shifts to make it better for you! There are now 3 shifts, each 3.5 hours. There are all sorts of perks, and if you're a seller, you get an additional 5% discount on commission for every shift you do- that means you could take home as much as 85% of your sale proceeds instead of the usual 70%! All shifts will have tea & biscuits and a chance to get to know the other volunteers.
Shift 1: Saturday set up. 1:30pm - 5pm. Help set up and put out sale items. In return you'll get priority shopping on Sunday and seller's commission discount. This is a great shift for both sellers and shoppers. If you're a seller, you'll be dropping things off anyway so you might as well help set up and get an extra 5% of your sales!
Shift 2: Sunday sale. 8:30am - 12pm. Get here at 8:30 sharp for some last minute set-up before everyone gets here for the sale. Perks for this shift are priority shopping before we let in the general public, as well as seller's commission discount. Another great shift for sellers and shoppers. Plus, stay for the whole day and we'll put lunch on for you!
Shift 3: Sunday tear down. 12pm - 3:30pm. Many hands make light work, and the more volunteers we have for this shift, the more timely seller pick-up will be. This is a perfect shift for sellers, as you get the commission discount and you'll be coming back anyway to get your unsold items. Better yet, volunteer the whole day and get lunch, as well.
To volunteer, please contact our Nearly New Sale Co-ordinator at NNS.StroudValleys@nct.org.uk or sign up at the link above.
