IT’S TIME TO GET RID OF THE OLD AND REFRESH WITH THE NEW.
The BCT’s Nearly New Sales are the cheap and cheerful option to kit out your children from the early days right up to their teens.
The BCT sells maternity, baby and children items on behalf of pre-registered sellers. On sale are top-quality items for as little as a quarter to a third of their original price. Many even for less. Each product is hand-checked for quality and safety to set BCT standards before it is put on the stand.
The NNS is open to everyone, members and non-members alike, but BCT members get priority to sell their stuff. The BCT collects 20% of sales to cover sales expenses and to keep the various BCT services and programmes running.
“A friend told me about the BCT’s Nearly New Sale to buy some things for my children. It was great! After going two times, I learned that volunteers can shop before everyone else – so I joined the BCT and volunteered for the Sale. I helped hanging clothes and stacking toys the morning of the Sale and then I could shop for half an hour before helping out again. I had to pay to be a member but it was worth it to get the first pick at the two sales every year.”
Sell and buy maternity, baby and children’s clothes and equipment at bargain prices at the BCT’s twice yearly market place.
At halls in and around Brussels, for instance at the Centre Communautaire Joli-Bois (CCJB), Avenue du Haras/Stoeterijlaan 100, 1150 Woluwe-Saint-Pierre.
Payment is accepted in cash and Bancontact. We charge a small entry fee of 2€ (1€ for BCT members with a valid membership card) to fund the sale.
Around March/April and October, final dates are widely publicised in the weeks preceding the event.
This is an extremely popular event, so make sure to arrive early to get a chance to enjoy a wider selection of items.
Want to help?
Volunteers gain first access to the sale and we always need many volunteers in order to make the sale a success: morning or afternoon helpers, helpers on the tills and some strong men for the set up and clear up at the end of the day and security on the day (tall people, especially).
