Past Event – Nearly New Sale

Our next nearly new sale for Saturday 2nd June 2018, 10-11:30am at Crofton Community Centre.

I always seem to have piles and bags of stuff that’s grown out of, and although I’m sad to see some of it go, it brings me joy to know that someone else gets to enjoy it too. Plus it would be nice to make a bit of money by selling some of the good stuff, wouldn’t it?

At Wakefield Mumbler Nearly New Sales you won’t find a huge number of sellers all selling exactly the same items, we want to keep our sales on the smaller side so that you aren’t competing too much and get the price your pre-loved items deserve.

We also allow you to bring a small hanging rail if you have one and in addition to your table, you’ll get a bit of floor space for larger items at no extra cost.

The potential customers are only paying a £1 entry charge too, so we should see some good footfall.

We’ll even display and potentially sell separate items on your behalf (small fee applies, please inquire for more details)


For those of you looking for a bargain, make sure you follow the event page on Facebook, where the expected bargains will be posted, get there early if you see something you fancy!

There will be free face painting and we’ll set up a colouring table to keep the little ones busy whilst you buy your items too.

FREE entry after 11am, although best get there early to snap up the bargains!

Every family will get a goody bag with a few treats inside.
