SPOILT for CHOICE!!Posted: 10/04/2011
There will be thousands of BARGAINS on offer today and I have definately given some of you a real problem WHERE to GO Truro or MABE!

Both start at 1.30pm and our buyers know both TRURO & MABE is reliable for superb BARGAINS!

Where to go!!
ENJOY and get a decent WALK some of you have put on a lot of weight in the Winter, may all your BARGAINS be GOLDEN!

Missed you all.

SUNDAY & SUNDAY a GREAT success!Posted: 10/04/2011
Say what you like but I do listen to our customers.

Lots of buyers and sellers from the TRURO area asked if we can keep Truro open for a couple of weeks extra even though TRURO & MABE started at the same time.

Today over 4700 visits were made to both sales and it was a huge success.

Dont forget TRURO will be starting this SATURDAY at 10.00 am and the last SUNDAY is on 17th April at 1.30 pm

Thank you,

Geoff

Great first Newquay-over 1400 on site!Posted: 08/04/2011
It was a great atmosphere meeting up with some of our 'fine weather friends' who we have not seen since October when their hibernation started!
I am happy for two over 70s who told me last season 'we are giving it up-we are too old'

They are looking great and delighted to be chatting to friends from previous years.

Not many tourists around but we saw some GREAT BARGAINS!

DO NOT BUY OR SELL OR RESERVE UNTIL THE HORN BLOWS-YOU COULD BE BARRED!!Posted: 31/03/2011
On Sunday with 197 stall and over 2700 buyers we received a complaint from a buyer who had seen a KIDS GARDEN HOUSE on display at a stall and immediately asked 'how much'
'Sold it' was the reply.

A deal was done before the buyers were allowed and this is clearly breaking the rules of 'FAIR PLAY' to all concerned.

NO BUYING, NO SELLING, NO RESERVING until the HORN STARTS THE SALE

I have BARRED 2 customers recently who wanted to bend the rules by gaining an unfair advantage over genuine buyers.

We stand for FAIRNESS all around not fo a minority but for the MAJORITY!

By the way the complainant blamed Louise which was a bit unfair but funny!

Many years ago in Dig & Delve a woman customer was so rude to me I was rude back and she demanded to speak with my boss to complain so I gave her Lou's number.

The woman ranted for several minutes and when Louise got a word in she said "I absolutely agree with everything you say and he will be sacked" then put the phone down! Biatch!

Dont BUY it then LEAVE it!!Posted: 31/03/2011
This year so far at TRURO, over 15 buyers have bought items at stalls saying "Can I pick it up later" and completely forgotten to collect.

DAVE forgot his saucepans, 3 customers forgot toys, Gypsy Mother forgot the bedding but the one to top it all bought several items from stalls and left her purchases worth we believe over £200.00
What a NUTTER!

At the end of the last 4 Car Boots at Truro we have had sellers come up to say they had sold items but the people did not come back for them.

We cannot be held responsible for your absent-mindedness and the seller has kept their end of the bargain!

Your LOSS! Wake UP!!

ps; I did this in Cambridge years ago!

THIS HAS GOT TO STOP!Posted: 27/03/2011
You cannot expect to come to our Car Boot Sales without having the rent to pay for your stall.

In the last 4 weeks over 30 sellers did not have money to pay to sell, it is unfair to all sellers who pay the required stall fee.

With immediate effect we will adopt the procedures like Hayle & Roseudgeon.

NO RENT-NO SELLING! Thats fair!

GOSSIP!Posted: 15/03/2011
Great Sunday with over 2500 people in attendance and loads of BARGAINS!

We ask all buyers to arrive EARLY to avoid traffic delays please.

Cannot give you dates to the start of the season some of the grounds are very wet, as soon as I know it will go into this site.

PORTH is looking good however there is some opposition from a neighbour. When we first looked at PORTH we did a survey and the locals were most happy to support a COMMUNITY Car Boot Sale at a superb location.

Tretharis School could well be our winter indoor venue in Newquay.

Return to FLAMBARDS negotiations. Now that FLAMBARDS share the main entrance with SAINSBURYS I strongly believe HELSTON deserves a good Car Boot Sale at a brilliant location.
