I've never been to an NCT sale and I'm thinking of going to one in November. I'm being asked to donate £3.50 for a sellers pack and I'll have some baby stuff to sell but I was wanting to sell my maternity clothes.
Would that be the sort of thing people would buy at the sale? I have tonnes of good quality and hardly worn maternity clothes from Mamas and Papas, Gap, M&S, Mothercare etc. (Work involved lots of meetings and socialising with clients and I had to dress smartly)
Just wondering before I go ahead and sign up as I don't want to go there and people only want to buy baby things.
Also - apart from ebay - any other places I could sell them?
Hi KirtsyAnn, I'd check with your local branch to see if they accept Maternity clothes before you fork out the £3.50. My branch generally does not accept maternity clothes as they often did not sell and took up a chunk of our (fairly limited) floorspace which could be used for other more saleable stuff. However, there was a lady who sold second hand maternity wear as a business who would sometimes come out and buy the lot if she knew we were stocking it.
KA, see what your branch thinks. If you decide not to sell through the sale, Netmums seems to have local classified ads with things for sale - you'd get to keep what someone was willing to pay whereas with ebay a lot of money will go on postage and ebay/paypal fees.
There's a website which brings people who want to buy and sell maternity wear online together.
I went to an nct sale recently as wasn't expecting to find maternity clothes but there was a small rail full, and i bought loads as it is always so expensive, was really glad it was there as my wardrobe is much fuller now!!!
Agree with others - I'd check with the branch. Our sale does have a good rack of maternity wear, but it is very hit & miss in terms of what sells (perhaps not too surprising given that someone has to be both your size, and have your taste in clothes ) 10-12 is probably pretty safe - you might find your petite stuff doesnt sell as well (size 8-10 petite here!)
