Great day at Truro today! UPDATED; 7.00am Tuesday

3 good pictures!
I have rarely seen happier faces from some of the absolute BARGAINS hunters who did so well today from the blast of the horn and the rush of up to 1000 eager buyers looking for the best offers. My Lou has been clearing out her storeroom deciding to do the first EVERYTHING 50p stall. She took an amazing £120.00 meaning that she sold at least 240 items from her stall. Other buyers were lucky with buying so many good quality clothes most of them from one stall many of the items were ‘brand new with tags’ the seller downsizing to move away. The amount of really good quality toys were sold with stunning bargain prices and a huge amount came with their original boxes. I was very proud of Truro today the sellers had set up some fantastic stall and the buyers did justice by spending very well with several reports of takings in excess of £250.00 one lady arrived late and told Jackie that she would just go home but Jackie said ‘go on give it a go you could take some money’ the lady listened and we were delighted to hear she took over ninety quid!! Another lady showed me some of the ladies clothing she had bought she was so delighted and was heading off home to ‘put them all on eBay’ of course.

I don’t like to talk about sport much but have you noticed that Newcastle United is up to sixth position in the Premier League and that Sunderland are second bottom. One of our regular buyer/seller customers is a Sunderland supporter who can be a right miserable old sod at times, I have wound him up so much about how good Newcastle is I can almost see it in his eyes “Who is this irritating old bastard” but he doesn’t have the balls to say it! Howay the lads! Going down, going down, going down and I don’t mean sexually my lover!

I was twice approached with high compliments for our website in particular the ‘Geoff Says crap wot I wrote’ they suggested that readers should apply to join to read my blogs then we would have all the contact details of our readers and be able to sell the addresses on to other sources. Nice idea but I seriously respect the privacy of all our customers who have supported CBC since 1989 that’s why I won’t allow BBC or any other TV companies to invade the privacy of our sellers at our events. They tried it out at MABE and cocked up that’s it ‘BBC barred’ and whilst I am on about the BBC why don’t they get their bloody forecasts right? Anyway back to the compliments thank you and for the record I dearly love Marge and all the others who contribute their names unwillingly to my gossips they are lovely people and help make our Car Boots the success we have all achieved.

Now then, Monkey Tree had its second Sunday today with 12 sellers but over the sale time buyers spent well and over the two weeks hundreds have found out the location of Monkey Tree. Ok so it is not busy at the moment but when we change the time and day it is destined to be successful especially when you take into consideration how many thousands of visitors flock to Monkey Tree itself and PERRANPORTH which is more or less on the doorstep. It takes time for new Car Boot Sales to take off so with PAR and Monkey Tree new this winter I hope they are well received particularly as we regionalize the sales helping people save on fuel costs.

Lou and I were putting out the Truro signs at about eight this morning and were driving down Lemon Street which was deserted apart from a lady walking her dog, suddenly a large blue balloon came bouncing toward the car and I drove over the balloon causing a loud BANG and the woman and the dog acted as though the end of the world had arrived with her screaming and the Alsatian dog yelping and leaping into her arms, I thought I had run both of them the stupid pair! It was so funny I had to stop the car to dry my eyes from laughing and Lou was laughing as well which is a rare occurrence in the car with my driving it has to be said.
She is such a nervous passenger you will remember I used to have Mercedes Vito’s and over 6 years I bought and exchanged three of them through eBay and each of the three Lou managed to actually pull off the passenger door handle and arm rest “Oh look what I have got” as she thrusts yet another door handle and arm rest into my face! “How the f... did that happen”? Very funny, hilarious!

Back to the 50p stall that Lou did if any of you want to set up a 50 p any item stall (no foods or drinks) and you think you can honestly give value to our buyers then you can set-up early and borrow all of our ANY ITEM 50 p signs, no crap please just genuine BARGAINS!

I am sure all households would have at least 100 things ‘you can seriously live without’ get your husband to sort out yours and you can do his, now that is a recipe for a good old fashioned punch up my lovers and today was no different in my household. I help her set up her 50 p stall and lo and behold there are THREE items stolen from my office retrieved at the last minute! Just imagine stealing from your husbands office whilst snooping around all for the sake of one pound fifty, no wonder I am still looking for wife number five.

By the way a couple whom we have known for 18 years have just split up which is a shame for all concerned especially if there are children involved, however when one of the partners is so obviously responsible for the breakup and it is plain for everyone to see yet when the marriage is broken up completed the faulty partner says "What did I do to deserve this" acting like John McEnroe! Quite simply this, the faulty partner has over a considerable amount of years taking his wife for granted ignoring her hopes and wishes for the family's future. Woman love to be appreciated, tell them they are lovely, show appreciation for everything she does to make your life happy and compliment her on her food (which I think is going a bit too far in my household) telling her you love her goes a very long way and if you really want to go over the top and get a stunning reaction then buy her some flowers from Lidl. Last time I did that it was like the inquisition "WTF have you been up to my lad" Don't take your partner for granted like my wife does my lovers! Fancy stealing 30 bob!!!

I need you to TALK to me about when the last week in Truro should be? What do you think about BOXING DAY Car Boot Sale at PAR 12.00 noon (no Market Open?) What date should we start BACK at TRURO? Talk to me Gomez........
