The Nearly New Shop

The Friends of Dulwich College Nearly New Shop (NNS), is the perfect place to find all kinds of uniform basics, from shoes and trainers to blazers, trousers and current sports kit. The NNS is a proper shop, with the stock displayed on rails, and first time visitors are often surprised at how easy it is to browse and find a bargain.

The NNS serves a dual purpose for DUCKS and College parents. Firstly and most importantly, is a way to BUY spare items of uniform and kit at a reasonable price on the 3 or so times a month the shop is open. Secondly, it offers a chance to RECYCLE those outgrown uniform items which clutter up your cupboards. Stock is made up of donated items and unnamed lost property items which remain unclaimed after four weeks.

Everything in the NNS is sold “as seen”. New stock is always needed. Please click on the links on the right for information on donating and volunteering.
