Car Boots Cornwall Here is a selection from the thousands of pictures collected over the recent years-some happy memories-some sad! Each picture has its own story and I thank the kids so much for the happiness they have given to Louise and myself. The Car Boot pictures with the huge crowds that attend our sales add to the social lives and community spirit of CAR BOOTS CORNWALL customers. To sum up one customers said 'the best highlight of our week is Car Boot Sales, its a day out without the stresses in life and as a family we feel part of a Community' Thank you, Geoff & Louise

Good Morning!

Sorry about any delay with the Geoff Says column but its all worth waiting for I just decided to take a break away particularly as the news has been restricted due to the rotten weather we have had over the last 3 weeks which has certainly not been helped by the rotten BBC forecasts.
Two weeks ago we were rained off on Fathers Day so transferred the Car Boot from MABE to Truro at 1.30pm and only 12 sellers turned up for the sale which was a HUGE disappointment to our regulars who turned out to support this 'feeble effort' of sellers. Some put it down to being Fathers Day but I put it down to lots of sellers not realising they would have taken GOOD MONEY if they had got off their backsides and made the effort to sell. I am certain they would have been happy with GOOD takings. The bottom line on this is that I would be most reluctant to transfer from MABE to Truro again!

Don't use Fathers Day as an excuse by saying we were staying home with Daddy cos I think that Fathers Day is for 'WUSS' brigade lets change it in fact let's kick the idea into touch to be replaced with Grandma's Day which could be a HOOT! Back in the 60s at Butlins I used to compere GLAMOUROUS GRANNIES a weekly competition which was always a hit with the happy campers! Great Days! Someone asked me 'Did you get any Fathers Day cards' nope but the dustbin did! Lets start a petition for Canny Granny Day! Marge will collect your signatures.

Sunday at MABE reminded me of the early days with under half the field used for the Car Boot Sale however loads of buyers turned out and I certainly witnessed some fantastic BARGAINS being taken back to the cars. One customer young Dave (a very polite young man) bought the fantastic bike in our picture for the amazing price of FOUR POUNDS!! One pundit suggested he sold it on eBay should get forty quid?

Another buyer bought a good quantity of gold for a BARGAIN price of fifty quid and sent a very blurred picture of his find I think his eyesight is so bad it could be old curtain rings, I will annoy him for a better picture.

Hope you are all well and ok and thank you for your comments about this column, to all our regulars who have supported us over the last three weeks serious thank you and thank you again. To the sellers give this a thought? It is not a good sign for our business when there are only a few sellers but it is a very good sign for sellers that they WILL take money because of the support of GREAT BUYERS! Last week at Truro indoors we let the sale go ahead with less than 20 sellers but crowds of buyers. Did they take money? Oh Yes! Several over £100.00 and one taking over £170.00 brilliant.
