NCT Sale and the launch of the Nappy Library!

on October 19, 2012


Well, it’s that time of the year again and I’m actually quite excited! Tomorrow is my local NCT Sale and I’m going to be there, running my own trade stand!

I’ve done it before, a few months ago, and it really is a lot of fun. NCT sales are a fabulous thing to go to and you can get THE most amazing bargains for your little one. If you shop smartly, you can get his/her wardrobe pretty much kitted out for many years to come, which is a really sensible thing to do in this day and age.

But, for me, tomorrow really isn’t about shopping. Ok…I’m slightly telling a white lie there as I do have a shopping slot where I can rush around and get my little Monkey Man some bits and bobs.

Tomorrow is all about the nappies!

I’ve got an amazing array of demo nappies, which has just been boosted enormously by some lovely companies donating nappies. I’m currently in the process of setting up a Real Nappy Library for my area and will very soon be able to have loan packs that parents can borrow from me. They can try them out for a week to see how easy cloth is to use before they invest in some of their own nappies.

It’s such a simple concept but one that is proving to be very effective. All across the country, other ladies are busy setting up/ running their own Nappy Libraries – so there’s bound to be one near you!

So, I just wanted to personally say a HUGE thank you to Little Lambs, Babykind, Babipur and FuzziBunz for their support. It’s lovely to have some nice, new nappies to add to the Library’s collection.

I also would like to say a massive thank you to some local ladies who have really helped to boost the supply of preloved nappies that will make the bulk of the Library. Amanda, Cathryn and Tracey have really generously donated a whole load of shaped nappies, prefold nappies and lots of wraps that can be borrowed!

Roll on tomorrow – I’m going to have a lot of fun!

    Best of luck for tomorrow and tell me how it goes! x

  2. Hi, I’m looking at setting up my own nappy library as there isn’t one in my area, I’m just wondering how you went about getting the nappies for it and how you got companies to donate them? Thanks

    • Hi there! Best of luck with setting up. I emailed all the companies and just hoped that they’d be nice! My local council and NCT have put a lot of funding in place as well. You just have to persevere but not appear at all pushy. These companies have so many people asking them now.
      I also asked via my local Freecycle for donations, which have been brilliant. X
