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

FRIDAY at Falmouth 12th October (2 pictures)

Only 17 sellers but the locals and regular buyers supported the few. Stall were charged a fiver and buyers were free. During a coffee break I was sitting in the car with Lou when I noticed 2 men walking back to their car parked near the clubhouse. One of them picked something up from the ground which I thought looked like a purse and I said to Lou 'I cannot be certain but I think that man might have picked a purse up' I decided not to say anything to the man but as a precaution Lou got out of the car to walk past their Landrover and texted me the registration number as they drove off.
I walked around the stalls which were preparing to pack up as the skies darkened and rain again was forecast and spoke to most of the sellers who had said it was all worth the effort one telling me they had taken over £140.00
Whilst chatting to a lady who had travelled from Penzance I was approached by a couple who asked me if a purse had been handed in so I told them of my thoughts of the man who I was not entirely sure what exactly he had picked up!

The lost purse contained all the lady's credit card and just under £50.00 in cash, all I could do was to give the couple the car number from my mobile and they decided to go to the Police with the information I had given them. I do not know the outcome of this story hopefully the couple will tell me this Friday but ladies he is a stark warning to look after your purses!

It is not necessary to warn the men because they dont have much money its all in their wives purses my lovers!
Marge (leave Marge alone) has been caught time and again with her purse allways ready to spend and I keep telling her 'put the purse away somewhere safe or someone will 'nick it' ME!!
For the record Marge does not mind being mentioned so here is some more publicity for her and the fellow sellers at HALL for CORNWALL including Rita (of big bum fame)who present interesting looking stalls on the thrice weekly FLEAMARKETS! Go along and have a look when you are next in Truro!!


By the way did you know TRURO SORTING OFFICE have STOPPED taking parcels which I believe is a CRAP idea and bloody annoying for customers who for years have found it convenient to park right outside the sorting office to post their eBay and personal parcels! One of the staff told a customer 'they have even taken our scales away'

However here are a couple of hints go to your local post office or use carrier services the top one parcelstogo.com will HOME COLLECT after giving you a quote another is myhermes.co.uk with a third collectplus.co.uk who will collect HEAVY parcels.
apcovernight.com 01209 214110 will collect and give you NEXT DAY deliveries. Louise who sells on eBay (4kinel) has used these services and as most of the cost is passed onto the buyer it is great to have home collect which I think is brilliant!!

It is damned annoying getting stuck behind someone in the post office who has got several eBay parcels to post whilst the old dears have to queue and wait for their pensions in fact its a pain in the bum! Respect the old farts please!!
If any of you have got any 'top tips' on collection and deliveries of furniture let us know please and we pass the information onwards.

One of my ex girlfriends had 3 boobs one in the middle of her back, she was'nt much to look at but great fun to dance with!

Loves,
Geoff
