Do you want designer and High Street clothes for your children, but can’t afford them?

Posted on


We have the answer! Affordable, good quality nearly new clothes from new born up to age 6. We have a unique approach to nearly new and this has proved increasingly popular with our ever expanding customer base. 

We sell nearly new clothes online through our Facebook page and at monthly sales held locally to us in Bexley, Kent. We sell clothes, coats, shoes, bedding and accessories. All the clothes we sell are in excellent condition, and everything is checked very carefully. We sell all good High Street brands and lots of designer brands, but all are sold at a fraction of the price you would pay for them new. In this day and age lots of people don't have lots of spare money to buy clothes for their children, but still want them to look nice. That’s where we come in!

All our clothes are purchased from other Mum’s in our local area, who are always pleased to get some money for the clothes they no longer need. We have a continuous supply of new stock coming in so there are always different items to choose from.

Our sales – a unique approach.

All our items are individually priced and organised in boxes according to age. This means that whenever you come along to our sales you know there will be plenty of items in the age range you want. When you attend other nearly new sales it may be pot luck on the day as to whether anyone is actually selling items in the age you are looking for. This makes our sales unique, and means that lots of our customers travel quite some distance to come along and shop. At some venues we are also able to offer a chance to sit down and have a cuppa and cake with your friends!

Online – customers across the country.

We sell online through our Facebook page and update this stock weekly. Our online stock is also carefully organised by age or type of clothing, and everything is individually priced. Items bought online can be collected from Bexley if you are local to us. We also post items out and have customers all across the country.

Charitably donations – helping good causes.

Many of our customers who sell clothes to us do not want to have their unsuitable items back as they are pleased to have cleared the space! We donate these items to a local charity on their behalf. Our local Ellenor Lions shop has recently been sending a van round to collect these clothes from us, and they are always delighted to receive them.

Working with Surestart Children’s Centres

We run several of our sales in association with our local Children’s Centres. This helps us to take our service and reach families who really need help with affordable clothing for their children.

The future…..

Children’s Nearly New has proved to be really popular and we are increasingly busy in our day to day work. We fit this in around looking after our own young children, but have plenty of plans for expanding further when all our children are at school full time. Some of our ideas at the moment are opening  “Pop up shops”, taking on extra sale venues in different areas and building a website!
