I want to sell some stuff at an NCT NNS, but haven't a clue how to price it. Mostly maternity clothes and baby/toddler clothes. Any tips?

When I sold mine i was told to price it so you dont need to collect it! so not too high if its really nice i personally would put it on ebay i wouldnt price anything over £3 for children or £5 for maternity good lukc

depends how much you want to get rid of it !

If you just want to pass it on to be of use to someone then price low. If you want to actually get some money back then price a bit higher but accept you might not sell it.

Baby clothes in particular there always seems to be masses of so much of it doesn't sell.

Sometimes bundling a few things together - eg 2 or 3 jumpers sells better.

And put things on hangers (if that is what they ask for) - at sales I have helped at if it isn't on a hanger it doesn't get put out.

Thanks. Good tips - and an excellent link.

What about washable nappies? I've got some Bambino Mios that have never even been unpacked, but they're 7 years old. Any ideas on pricing?

I would say go for may 1/4-1/3 of the new price for the nappies.
