The doors opened as we all were clicked in, then women started charging down the hall through the doors to the second hall, power walking it was not, more like a stampede. I followed to the second hall and it was complete madness with grabbing of clothes and toys and the stuffing of shopping bags. I located the 1-2 year rail as thought i'd pick up a few bits for my boy. I was barged out the way by a heavily pregnant woman who also sent the rail flying forwards, narrowly missing the lady on the other side, there was a tut and a huff and we were all back on trawling the rails. Baby Gap was at a premium and these items were first in everyone's bag. I saw a few items very overpriced and by the time I left the sale these bits were hanging lonely on the rails to be collected by the owner who will probably rethink her pricing.
The toy tables were about 3 women deep, I could hear a lot of moaning about prices again there, and a lot of items being inspected then tossed aside. I witnessed two women go for the same soft toy book but one strong tug from the older of the two won the book war.
I'd had enough and joined the queue (which also snaked around the whole hall), even being in the queue I wasn't safe from the barging! Two women in front of me said they travelled all round going to the nct sale and with 7 children between them they got a good deal! Sod that, one morning was enough for me lol.
Finally got to the pay tables, got some good bits of clothing which will be good for nursery but I needed a good sit down and feet up when I left, I thought I was a die hard bargain hunter but these women especially the ones ready to drop really took the bargain hunting crowns - they were made of stronger stuff than me lol.
So that's all over and done with...unless I decide to brave the october sale, maybe nct sales are like child birth, you forget how painful it is until you go through it again!
