Brentwood NCT's Nearly New Sales are very popular both to the sellers and buyers. Come along to find
lots of bargains. You do NOT need to be a NCT member to buy or sell. Everyone is welcome.

We take the quality of the items that are sold at our sales very seriously so please only sell items that
are in a good condition and not missing vital parts. We reserve the right to prevent sellers from selling at
our sales if they sell faulty or dangerous items.

Please note that £5 of this registration fee is a refundable deposit. As long as you sign in with our
Sellers Coordinator when dropping off your items for sale, this will be refunded to your card after the
sale. If you do not sign in with the Sellers Coordinator (regardless of whether you sign in with the
Volunteers Coordinator) you will
not receive your refundable deposit back.

If you volunteer for the Sunday All Day slot or the Sunday Finance Room All Day slot, the seller’s
commission will be reduced to 20%. To receive this reduced commission, you must:
- register for one of the all day slots on the Volunteers Registration, in advance of the sale; and
- sign in and out with Volunteer Coordinator at the start and end of your slot.

PLEASE READ ON as there are a few changes compared to previous sales which you should be aware
of before signing up to the sale.

A summary of the CHANGES are:

- Labels will be provided by email rather than by post – this means you will need to print your own

- The maximum number of items each seller can sell is limited to 30 Clothing and shoes – please only
sell seasonal clothes and 80 non-clothing labels.

- All items for sale must be dropped at the hall on Saturday evening between 6.00pm and 7.00pm – no
items can be accepted on Sunday morning.

Please try not to bring children with you when dropping items off, as we cannot be held responsible for
their safety in such a busy environment. If you do bring them, please ensure they do not run around and
keep out of volunteers’ and other sellers’ way as there will be lots of heavy boxes being carried around.

To receive your sold labels as proof of sale, you will need to provide a stamped addressed envelope
when dropping off your items. These will be posted out once all the labels have been processed after
the sale. You will NOT be able to collect your labels on the day.

-Your unsold items will need to be collected between 1.30pm and 2.00pm
- A refundable deposit of £5 was taken at registration. This will be refunded to you after the sale,
assuming you turn up to sell items (& sign in with the Sellers Coordinator).

More details will be included in your Seller's Pack which will be emailed to you nearer the sale along
with your pre numbered labels to be printed out.


The proceeds from your sales will be paid by BACS transfer directly into your bank account. All
information is held securely on this site - bank information is not viewable by branch volunteers. BACS
payments can take up to 2 weeks after the sale but we aim to send on the Friday after the sale so they
arrive in your bank account on the following Tuesday.


If you are able to volunteer at the event as well, please continue to our Volunteer Registration section
once you have finished with the Seller Registration. Our sales are only a success and keep running
because of our wonderful helpers. Please do not bring children with you when volunteering - we cannot
be responsible for their safety in such a busy environment.

To reward you for your help, volunteers are entitled to shop before the sale in a limited pre-sale period
on the Sunday morning (usually around 9am). The seller's commission is also reduced from 25% to
20% for sellers who also volunteer to help during the Sunday All Day slot or the Finance Room All Day


In order to maximise how much money you make at the sale, please spread the word to get as many
buyers through the door as possible. You can do this by:

- like, comment and share our facebook and instagram posts
- sharing our poster (which we will include in the Seller's Pack email) with as many people as possible -
friends, family, schools, nurseries, baby groups etc.
- having an advertising board outside your house - we are partnering with a local estate agent - to do
this, please email your name, address and phone number to and we will
pass this on to the estate agents who will arrange the boards.
