Posted 18th July 2019Posted: 18/07/2019
TUESDAYS & THURSDAYS Car Boot Sales at NEWQUAY Chapel Farm both at 12 noon
Sellers should arrive at least one hour before start times. If you have the right bargains to sell the buyers are very keen to buy at Newquay as we approach the peak season and the school holidays. Remember to keep both eyes on your stall and make sure no-one steals from you! You are in charge of a space which is probably no bigger than your bathroom fs so do not come to me like a lady did at Newquay saying "I have just had a pair of curtains stolen from my stall" then she has the nerve to complain to one of my team that I did not give her a FREE stall! Why should I reward stupidity when she was obviously not paying attention to the security of her stall, so it all ends up my fault does it? I am sick of reminding people to be secure with their stalls stop looking at the crumpet and talent and pay attention ffs and sell it do not get it nicked for which I have no sympathy, just imagine if I had given her a freebie for the following week she would probably have had a bleedn wardrobe stolen and not even noticed it was gone because her busy-body eyes were not on the prize hah! gotcha!!

Wallop!

From our history 1997 re-written! My love for Gypsies! Posted: 09/07/2019
Way back in 1997 in the early days at MABE every SUNDAY we would receive complaints from sellers about the brash attitudes and stealing from stalls by the local Gypsy community and we had to be very careful how we dealt with the situation.

Landlord Mr D said he would 'throw the lot out' but my attitude was there were approximately 40 of their community and to upset them would have an adverse effect on our Car Boot Sales.

True enough we did catch the kids stealing one day a seller came to Louise and said a kids bike had been stolen from her stall and a few minutes later sure enough a lad of 8 walked out to the car park followed by Lou as he loaded the bike into a white van.

Louise opened the door and collected the bike and took it back to the stall holder who was delighted!
Not content with that Lou stopped the father of the lad and confronted him with 'your son stole a bike and I have taken it out of the van'!

There followed the worst nose to nose confrontation Lou has suffered where the father shouted and spat into her face whilst the kid egged him on by chanting to Louise 'you stink lady-you smell'

I arrived on the scene where a crowd was gathering watching the showdown and I could see that neither Lou or Daddy was going to give way.
I walked between the two and sent them in different directions which Lou was reluctant to accept but the incident was over and probably saved some bloodshed-MINE!

Next we had a Bouncy Castle which insisted that any kids going on the castle had to 'take your shoes off'
Two bright spark Gypsy lads brought bin liners and stole 11 various pairs of kids shoes while the owners 'bounced away'

However, my crowd of Gypsies a few years ago became reborn Christians and they have changed in so many ways they are a pleasure to have at our sales. They are still brash and outspoken and assertive but don't forget they spend a lot of money at the Car Boots.

To bond a friendship they asked me to go to a special birthday party at a HOTEL for one of the elders when 'everyone would be there'

I agreed to go but at the last minute made an excuse not to attend and was pleased with my decision when days alter one of the sons said 'hey mister you missed a great party and it was brilliant when the fights started but even better when the women fights began there was blood everywhere and the hotel was wrecked Mister!

Geoff
Please do not be offended by the picture, I pinched it from the Internet and anyway 'what is a tosser' and don't say you are ffs. x

Posted on 23rd June HOME PAGE 23/06/2019Posted: 24/06/2019
UPDATED SUNDAY 30th June 2019
Once again the BBBC cocked up it's weather forecast why do we all watch such an inaccurate load of utter crap?
So the BBBC got it wrong again by portraying bad weather with a yellow warning from early morning and heavy rain more or less all day but that did not happen. In the interest of looking after their ground conditions and taking into consideration the forecast HAYLE RUGBY CLUB cancelled their SUNDAY Car Boot Sale being wrong-footed by the BBBC who said there would be an average of 60% chance of rain more or less all day which was a total load of ollocks with a capital 'B' ffs! Just think of the money lost at Hayle from the sellers the buyers the Landlords rent the caterers the lot all because we all seem to be dominated by watching the ucking crap forecasts which are invariably wrong and wrong again. We have had to cancel the last five Sunday Car Boot Sales at St Columb Major due to weather but here is an opportunity not to miss subject to weather!

The next SUNDAY the 30th of JUNE we will re-start our season at St Columb Major and if you 'want to sell' you then drop me a line to my email address geffers999@hotmail.co.uk and in return I will give you a FIVER off to sell at St COLUMB MAJOR only this coming SUNDAY at 1.30 pm so if you want to 'go in early' then you wont have to pay the fiver extra! Text should read; Hello Geoff, Please take my email address as evidence to ask you for a FIVER off to sell at St Columb this SUNDAY the 30th June, your christian name is fine! Go for it tell you mates!! One of the good thing about St Columb is that the buyers don't haggle so much with the sellers like they do at other places so they tell me and they say "it's always the bleedn foreigners! We're all bleedn foreigners ffs! Love yourself-love your life and live long my bird! Geoff X Sorry, I made a mistake on the dates the mistake was deliberate I just wanted to see if you were paying attention? I have been so unlucky lately I reckon if I fell into a barrel of bosoms I would come out sucking my thumb ffs! Don't let any uncouth person come nick-nicking from you whether it's at the shops or the car boots there is always a skunk wanting to spoil your day. Don't let it happen to you. Happy Mothers Day Off Day! Give her a break and love her to bits and cuddle her lots, that's if you can get your arms around her the dear of her so she is. Kisses for Mumsy! Geoff.

PLEASE NOTE; Car Park Charges waived during the Car Boot Sales is will be FREE PARKING and £1.00 per adult person admission charge.

How to sell your car at our Car Boot SalesPosted: 22/06/2019
This item has been re-written including house rules dear!

A Mitchell seller arrives to sell items his car full of bargains plus his ageing Jaguar which he also wanted to sell. Now then, he stuck a couple of notices on the car and waited for the horn to start the sale. Not only did he sell all of his displayed items he also sold his car and he paid the grandly sum of £8.00 to sell the lot taking home well over a couple of grand. For him it was a well-planned and a good day’s work which lasted for less than two hours. Well done young man. We encourage all sellers who are wanting to sell vehicles to come to our boot sales with the vehicle you are hoping to sell loaded up with your selling items but make sure your car doesn’t stink of fag ash or stale farts (its Grandma again ffs) in other words clean the inside and outside right! Now then, you should have at least two large presentable signs with the year of the vehicle showing how much you are wanting for the car. Don’t ffs say ‘make me an offer’ because you could get seriously pissed off saying ‘make me an offer’ at a Car Boot Sale because they are all well experienced to offer you a pound! For a car! Yup, cos that’s what’ll appen fs! Now stick the signs to your windscreens with cellotaph onto the windows of the car you are now ready to sell, go for it, your stall is set up let’s wait for the horn! You will have to pay £8.00 for the stall and I hope you sell all your unwants and the car and we wish you luck! Bit of dosh back of the car, know what I mean sport, but be careful we often get the fuzz and Trading Standards on site, and they don’t come to sell nor buy mate! Oh, and by the way, we know someone who has been caught by the Inland Revenue for selling on eBay under various bogus and family names (now that’s stupid fs) but not declaring the incomes tut-tut, who dropped then in it? It was the Inland Revenue fraud squad mate weren't it. Now then, the chances are that you won’t go to prison but you will be fined very heavily and they the IR are very determined to get their money their bleedn dosh mate so that is seriously when the pressure in on my lover and you think you cannot sleep at nights through the worry but bollocks to that attitude stand-up be a man and say ‘fcuk me gently, I am in the shit and it’s my fault for being a greedy sod so let’s STF up and do a deal to pay. You then start to realize that they are probably very nice people just doing their jobs the barsts that they are so they are ffs, go the Inland Revenue!

Message to the Rev; I don’t suppose you could help with the disclosure of Donald-liar- Trump’s tax forms could you I would love to see him sent to prison for tax evasion for the whole of his life and more FFS! Their tax system in America is totally cocked up but I bet we have a copy of them somewhere, Trump is such a fking liar he is probably the World’s leading verbal diarrhoea President in telling lies to the American people having told over 11,000 lies to those ‘gullible’ yanks in the first two years of his verbal diarrhoeal Presidency so says the figures provided from the New York Times no less. The British Inland Revenue could become World famous if they could come up with his tax details proving he is a worthless berk, result or what? Search those cyber files my lovelies get the Russians and China to help, Go Inland revenue FFS!! If there are 10 Americans that I detest then Donald Duck the truth TRUMP is all of them, may he be blessed with permanent lockjaw and uncontrollable bouts of the shit’s cos that’s all he talks man, crap! Yer know what I'm saying man total crap ffs! Sorry, back to your car then;


Please note the rules of the game;
Now then, if you sell a vehicle at any of our Car Boot Sales, we will accept no responsibility for any vehicles sold at our locations; howsoever advertised whether the vehicle is either owned by you or stolen for you or by you or whatever if it’s the wreck of the week or whatever-whatever I don’t care, but it must be taxed and roadworthy further than that I don’t really GAF cos the onus for the car is entirely upon yourselves so don’t over exaggerate its condition and don’t ffs say “it’s got almost new tyres” when the whole world can see they are as bald as an old man’s wrinkly arse ffs! One ruling you may start the car for up to 10 seconds only to prove it’s got an engine, (smog-think of your neighbours) but it must not be driven out of the selling area by the hopefully new owner. Cost is £8.00 for the selling car or a van is from £10.00 amen end of rules!
One of the main advantages is that you don’t get potential tyre-kickers who have seen your advert in the paper then they come around to your place to see the car with all the bleedn kids wasting time expecting to be invited in for a tea or a coffee, wot no biscuits mate and then they don’t buy the car ffs, another benefit is that the pigging neighbours don’t get to know all yer business do they though? FFS!

Alternatively, you could go up-market and sell your car at the Lodge & Thomas Car Auctions held at the Truro Cattle Market on Thursdays at 6.00pm (check their website for further details) Lodge and Thomas have been our Landlords for the 30 years that we have held Car Boot Sales at Truro Cattle Market. They are without doubt the best Landlords ever over the 30 plus years, we have never had cross words cos they have allowed us to run our Car Boot Sales without interference and they have trusted us with the care of the Cattle Market during their absence, go Lodge & Thomas!

(Sunday poor forecast) SATURDAY at MITCHELL at 12.00 noon, SUNDAY TRURO at 12 / SUNDAY at St Columb at 1.30 pm
According to the BBC weather forecast Sunday is supposed to be raining but the bloody BBC have got it wrong so many times they ruin outdoor events so if they are they are right you can rely on TRURO Car Boot being held at 12.00 noon going ahead as we use the Cattle Pens which is very well supported by Joe and Johanna Public and if you make the effort and give your public BARGAINS then you will take money! To sell is 'well worth a punt' you should target taking at least £75.00 last Sunday 7 sellers I spoke with had exceeded the over one hundred pounds mate but don't expect to take that sort of dosh if you bring toot items! Go for it my lovers!

Newquay is our NEW location we are now at Chapel Farm which is opposite HENDRA HOLIDAY PARK. Sellers should arrive at least one hour at all locations before the start times at all locations. And now, it's 'thought for the day time' Go for it Geoff! Sellers please do not smoke when you are selling, it's bad manners and it will put your customers off and your breath and the things you are hoping to sell will probably stink! Been there done that and I have no idea where the money went that I don't spend on fags, gave it up 15 years ago. You could do the same if you want to add years to your life yer know. Take care, give it up man I mean have the odd spliff or two but you do not need those 2 deadly poisons of tobacco and nicotine in your systems do yer though. I have lost many customers over the years who have had an early demise cos of fags and they were lovely-lovely people (sniff-sniff) and I really miss them but truth to tell is that I really do miss their money ffs! Bless up man! Live de life. Give it up my men and my women friends we want to talk to you-not about you? Nearly forgot to say do not let anyone nick-nick off you my bird because if you are not alert you could lose out, know wot I mean! Geoff xx

and hibernation and vegetating and becoming boring old farts and fartesses! Come to Heartlands 'great kids fun park' //////////// Please Note; The CAR PARK CHARGES ARE TURNED OFF DURING THE CAR BOOT SALES; Admission Cost is £1.00 per adult person, Kids free up to 12 years old then 20 per child all proceeds to my annual holidays if you don't mind fs!
