Nearly New Sale Nightmare!

Picture of Nearly New Sale Organics for Kids SleepsuitIf you like queuing for ages (to get in and to pay) and getting shoved about by crazy women racing around for bargains – then a NCT nearly new sale is for you!

We arrived 20mins before the start and had to queue around the building to get in! People took children in buggies, babies in car seats and babies strapped to themselves into the sale with 2 large NCT shopping bags to grab whatever they deemed to be a bargain! It was a fight of the bumps with very pregnant ladies shoving into each other! It was chaotic and not very enjoyable to say the least!

Picture of Nearly New Sale BibsTrying to look at labels to see where things were made was almost impossible but I did manage to get an Organics for Kids sleepsuit for £1.50 (£18.20 new, made in the UK), 2 packs of 2 bibs (Pink Pig Clothing, made in the UK) for £1 each, a Powell Craft hooded towel for £1 (£9.99 new) and some Mothercare baby coat hangers for £2 (£4.99 new).

Picture of Nearly New Sale Hooded TowelI’ve sent an email to Powell Craft to find out where their products are made as there was no indication on the label. I received a disappointing reply this morning saying they make their products in Kashmir (India). The Mothercare coat hangers I suspect are also not made in the UK but will have to go into the “unknown” category!

We were asked 3 times if we wanted a plastic bag at the paying counter but explained that we wanted to be good to the environment and would be fine hand carrying our very few items out to the car! That was a bit of a trauma because then we had to be labelled up as paid and got stopped by a rude woman at the exit telling us we had to pay for our items, which we duly informed her we had but were trying to be environmental by not using loads of unnecessary plastic bags!

More Baby Products to Buy!

I realised time is moving on and we still have a lot to buy! So I spent Saturday trying to source online the rest of the baby items we need from suppliers and makers that manufacture in the UK.

Picture of Hooded Baby TowelI found Huddle & Bliss sell a 100% pure cotton white Hooded Baby Towel (£16) made in England and it can be customised with the baby’s name for an extra £8.

They also sell a 3 pack of 100% pure cotton white baby bodysuits (£17) made in England.

I think we’ll need 2 of these packs!

Picture of Mix & Match Baby BibsI’m very tempted to buy their UK made 100% cotton pack of 3 baby bibs (£8.50) Picture of Baby Swaddling Blanketsand their pack of 2 baby swaddling blankets (£19) too!

We still need 4 more baby sleepsuits and Huddle & Bliss sell a mix and match 3 pack in pink, pink check and white (£22) made in the UK.

I do love the Organics for Kids sleepsuits and rompers though! They are gorgeous pink stripes, butterflies or spots and made in the UK from fair trade 100% organic cotton. They are expensive but last 5 months instead of 3! The baby sleepsuits and rompers below are £16.70, £18.20, £17.00 and £17.20.
