Number Allocators are designated volunteers who facilitate the registration of sellers and the intake of goods prior to the Nearly New Sale.
They are the point of contact for sellers. They hand out “Seller Numbers” which enable BCT members and non-members to sell their goods. They receive the goods from the sellers before the event and hand back unsold items after the sale. Find out more about how to sell at the sale from our information for sellers.
Everybody who wants to sell at the sale has to ask for a seller number from one of our Number Allocators by filling in the Seller Number Application Form. Seller numbers will be released about one month before the sale, first to BCT members and then to non-members.
The list with the areas in which we have got Number Allocators and the link to the Seller Number Application Form for the next sale will be published below.
Release of seller numbers for the 2023 Nearly New Sale starts for BCT members on 16 October (members, check out the newsletter with all relevant details) and for non-members on 19 October 2023.
How many items?
With one seller number you are usually allowed to sell 50 (small) items and 5 large items, unless specified otherwise due to venue size. See Information for sellers for specifications of small and large items.
Two numbers per household
If you have more than 50 items to sell, the Number Allocator can provide an additional Seller Number, with a maximum of two Seller Numbers per household. Please note that if a seller submits more than 50 items, some goods may be rejected without notice and a penalty of 10€ may be charged.
What would you like to do with your unsold items – re-collect them or donate some of them?
If you would like some of your unsold items to be donated to charity, please highlight the description on the label with any colour highlighter and they will go directly to charity after the sale.
Pick the number allocator most convenient for you
When filling in the Seller Number Application Form, pick the Number Allocator whose location is the most convenient to you. Your Number Allocator will be your main contact point and will provide you with every required detail.
