Withiel Sunday Car Boot Cancelled!Posted: 28/09/2010
Withiel Car Boot Sale has been cancelled with immediate effect.
Two Sundays ago the sale was moved to another field nearer to the A30 causing traffic problems involving the Police. It was decided that in the interest of public safety the Car Boot would be cancelled but plans are for the popular Car Boot to continue next year!
Welcome WITHIEL customers who came to us at MABE on Sunday at 1.30 pm

News Flash!Posted: 28/09/2010
Where is "Got any jewellery Luv" Dave to his friends He was not seen over the weekend and rumours are rife.
I had a complaint against him by a seller and I replied 'Dont be fooled Luv he is an under-cover Social Security inspector trying to catch the people who are claiming benefits'
The seller went back to their stall car and was the first to leave?
He is a bit different but the adds to the different Cornwall characters we meet daily! Whatever he is an honest man the fellow dealers like him and like all of us he is "Only trying to make a living Luv"

Ladies wallet found!Posted: 28/09/2010
How about this!
A lady seller went to another stall and left her purse which was later handed into us at our Royal Cornwall Showground Car Boot Sale by a very honest Mr A. Stewart.
Not a word over the weekend but a distressed ansaphone message on Monday morning claimed the lost purse with £70.00 and credit card etc.
The delighted lady comes to the Car Boots at the Royal all the way from Devon for the 2 hour sale and was stunned by the honesty of our customers!
We are a decent honest bunch us Car Boot lot we are the Community at peace with itself enjoying the Car Boot Sales special atmosphere of friendship and looking for the odd bargain or making a few pounds recycling your unwanted items!
Over 310,000 visits to our Car Boot Sales in one year!

BOFS-Boring old FARTS!Posted: 28/09/2010
We get some lovey people at ou sales but we also get some real "Boring old Farts" who really piss me off!
Old FART 1. MABE SUNDAY....This man about 70 years old came up to me and said "If you want to make this better you should ban all the prams and push chairs"
I said "I bet you were a right little BRAT when you were a kid"
Then he accused me of being rude, if I had said what was on my mind...........just two words and the second one is OFF!!

I have never stopped laughing!Posted: 28/09/2010
When we opened MABE an old man called Bill (now deceased) told me he was going to write to the Council to complain that the signs we put out on the roads were illegal and he was going to get the Car Boot stopped.
The next time I saw him was when I was parking up at MABE near the catering area and BILL was driving his car at me determined to park in the wrong place! He kept driving and his car hit me in the shins before I could move!
I shouted 'You stupid old bugger' and continued parking.
When I looked back at BILL he was on two walkings sticks which he raised in the air shouting to me "Come ere you Bastard" and he promptly..............FELL OVER!!
Bless him! The old git!

Our admission prices WILL go UP!Posted: 27/09/2010
We have decided that the selling prices for 2011 will not increase but after careful consideration there will be a 10p increase in admission prices at all locations.
Our operational costs in all weathers have increased in particular to the staffing of our events and The Public Liability Insurance which cover your safety during your visits.
We are considering a season ticket idea for separate locations which would be offered at the old price........more to follow!
Sorry my lovers if you want us to operate the Car Boot Sales as successful as they are there is a price to pay! Alternatively we considered
reducing the numbers of Car Boot Sales which would be most unpopular.

MITCHELL-Saturday Car Boot Sale 18th September 2010-09-22
During a walk around the busy Car Boot Sales at Mitchell Phil from CLAIRES BOUNCY CASTLES decided to buy an EX-BOX at the asking price of £30.00 he was assured by the seller that it was in full working order. What the seller did not know was that Phil was able to test the Ex-Box straight away at his bouncy castle generator and found that the game did not work.
The seller had said ‘it worked’ and as it ‘did not’ work he was entitled to a refund which was begrudgingly given and Phil returned to his stall.
About 10 minutes later Phil noticed a man carrying the identical carrier bag with the same Ex-Box inside! “Have you just bought that from a stall over there” he pointed to the stall that had sold him the not-working game.
The new buyer had agreed but he also had been assured the game worked!
The complaint was brought to me and we accompanied the new buyer to get the second refund of the day on the useless Ex-Box game from the most embarrassed stall holder who was told in no uncertain terms “Do not sell this game again”?
Remember if you are selling any ELECTRICAL items and you claim ‘”YES it works” then it MUST WORK!
CLAIRES CASTLES will happily check electrical items for you at a small cost and these on the spot electrical checks are another way in which you can guarantee you electrical purchase are safe to take home to use!
By the way if you want to hire a BOUNCY CASTLE for your own private parties give CLAIRE a ring on 01209 821170 or on her mobile 07707 002 308
They give a fantastic service and they have Full Public Liability Insurance for all events!
