I am determined to shift the 3 binbags of Esme's clothes and various other clutter from the house. I've thought about selling online but can't face the hassle of posting etc so I'm going to try the next NCT sale here which is next month. I've requested a seller's pack but it hasn't arrived yet so I'm after some tips from the MD girls!
How would you group things together? Would you want, say, 5 sleepsuits of the same age as a job lot? Also, what sort of prices would people pay? We have a mixture of cheapy (supermarket own) clothes but also Gap, Boden, JoJo etc
Also got a Baby Bjorn sling, bath support, tummy tub. WOuld they sell OK too?

Tbh, clothes for under 6 months don't sell well, esp supermarket stuff. I would put bundles in freezer bags and price dirt cheap (3 sleepsuits or 5 vests for £1). If you have other clothes. make them into outfits (with vest, tights etc) and put on a hanger. Again price low to sell.
Equipment sells better than clothes - prob a fiver for the sling and tummy tub, and bath supports are usually slightly less. You can either price a bit higher and risk taking stuff home or price low and almost guarantee selling (you have to imagine there will be half a dozen bath supports etc there so only the cheapest 2 or 3 will sell).
It's worth volunteering at the sale if you can - you can put your own stuff to the top and front, and also you get priority shopping to buy new goodies (and actually it's quite fun).

Stupid question SL - do you then sell the hanger with the outfit?

Definitely volunteer! Another benefit is that if you notice there are quite a few of the same item and they are cheaper than yours, you can just alter your price accordingly. Cheeky, but one of the benefits of volunteering I guess.
And yes, sell on the hanger. Good way to get rid of them too!
Usually the hangers get kept by NCT for use at future sales - we find that outfits that are hung up sell much better (and also take up less space/display better than those put on tables) so we try to keep/beg/borrow/scavenge as many hangers as we can and then hold on to them!
I've recently started saving up hangers when I buy clothes so I can use them when I sell stuff (and of course if you volunteer you can make sure you can nab some of the hangers that are bound to be supplied by the sale team and use them for your stuff).
