A few weeks ago I went to my first ‘NCT nearly new sale’ and I was so impressed I had to share my buys with you…
By the time I arrived I was pretty much last in the queue so I feared I’d missed most of the bargains but the place was so big I didn’t need to worry – I headed straight for the baby boy 3-6 months section and pretty much had it to myself… in total I spent £23 and here’s what I got….
The top on the right is one of my faves – I love minis! The t-shirt on the left is the worst thing I bought, only because it was slightly bobbly – but at 50p for a Jasper Conran t-shirt I can’t complain!
We’re hoping to get away for our first family holiday in September so it was great to stock up on these shorts – all in excellent condition and cute details e.g. the john Lewis ones have a lovely red lining to contrast with the blue.
Baby’s first coat! I love, love, love this – I think it will be perfect for those rainy Autumn days!
I had to get these Next T-shirts…. look at the backs!
Baby’s first shirt… I’m sure we’ll find an occasion for him to wear it to!
Some of you will know I have a thing for elephants so when I saw this rucksack, I had to have it – hope he likes it by the time he’s old enough to use it!
I also have a thing for bees, so I HAD to have this bee outfit – it still had the tags on it too so another great bargain!
The above doesn’t quite add up to £23 – the remaining £5 or so I spent on 3 baby books – with textures, sounds etc.
So what a bargain, I was seriously impressed as I wouldn’t normally buy any designer labels for baby, so at this price the haul was a real treat. The quality on most items is really good, they really are nearly new – there’s only one t-shirt that shows a bit of wear/bobliness.
The next NCT sale in Cardiff is on September 26th 2014 – find out if you have one near you on their website. I was only interested in the clothes and books but they sell pretty much anything that’s baby-related! I will definitely be going to the next one…. will you?!

OMG!! I need to get me to one of them… clothing little miss at the rate that she grows is costing me a fortune!
Bargain my dear, BARGAIN!
BARGAIN indeedy – I still can’t believe I got all that for the price of one or 2 outfits in some shops! Hope there’s one near you 🙂 x
I’ve not been to an NCT sale, but my sister has and says they’re great. You’ve got some great finds there. Where are you planning on going on holiday? x
We could all go together next time 🙂
Oh no idea about hols – somewhere with daytime flights from Cardiff so Menorca is in the lead at the mo – we’ll prob just book a late deal eeek!xx
I adore every single item you’ve bought here. I think that little GAP jacket is my favourite – so cute!! I’ve heard so many good things about NCT NN sales but I’ve never made it to one. They only have a couple a year where I live as they struggle to find volunteers to help run them which is a shame. x
I reckon you should offer to volunteer – bet that would be interesting 😉
I love that jacket too – sooooo cool! We’re still getting through all his gifts so it’s great to start picking out clothes for him – he’s gonna be such a cool dude!xx
I’ve always missed the ones that have happened near us (mainly because it’s usually a few days before payday when we have little left to spend!) but seeing this, I really must go to the next one! Absolute bargains and I do love a good bargain! x
Glad it inspired you to check out the next one – I’ll defo be going again and hope the bargains are as good next time! xx
You’ve got some great bargains there! I’ve never heard of a NCT sale before but by the looks of this post one would be worth a visit! xx
Defo worth a visit Catriona – do they have any in N Wales?! Hope so! xx

Newly New Sales are amazing, I also volunteer (I’m on the branch commitee too) at ours so it means I get to shop before the doors open so it’s always worth asking if they want someone to help! I got my Stokke Tripp Trapp for £45 instead of the £200+ it should of been 🙂
Wow that’s a great deal you had! I have thought of offering to volunteer – we’ll see… thanks for commenting xx
This is really cool! Love the things you bought, they are of great quality too 🙂 #inspired
thanks, glad I inspired you 🙂
