No more Monday at Falmouth apart from Bank Holdays/Truro Saturdays cancelled and Long Rock Car Boots Sales are cancelled.

Ruthless that I am I have cancelled 3 separate Car Boot Sales and here are the reasons;

Saturday Morning’s at Truro, first Saturday of each month was a total flop simply because the sellers decided 8.00am was too early but what they didn’t realize was that a lot of buyers turned out, so if you had sold decent bargains then the buyers would have bought. The majority of sellers who want to sell on a Saturday decide on Mitchell but thousands of you will remember Truro used to be very busy years ago when we had 8 o’clock sales.
However on Saturday just gone we arrived to deal with the situation that only 11 sellers had arrived, our normal policy is not to start any of our Car Boot Sales with less than 20 sellers. Bargain number one was I decided to let the sellers set up their stalls FOR FREE plus a £3.00 off voucher for Mitchell and the buyers were FREE! All that from the goodness of my heart my lovers.

Bargain number 2. The 10 sellers swell to 13 card so we parked them inside the catering area to set up their stalls however there was one man in a people carrier who I convinced to ‘stay and sell you could do well’ because there was a growing queue of buyers. Anyway they all started to set up their tables, a few minutes before the start I walked around the stalls to check out what was being sold. The people carrier man was the last stall to set up however he was displaying some brilliant collectables and antique bits and I looked at the assembled buyers thinking “Who is going to buy this lot cos Le Roy is on holiday someone is gonna make whoopee” and guess what?
There was only one regular dealer we shall call Brian because that's his name who is a very polite decent bloke but all the other ‘top dealers’ (so they think) were probably still in their beds the lazy sods!
Go fill your boots Brian and when I see the malingering crowd next time I am going to really wind them up. The horn started the sale and Brian walked straight up to the antiquary bits tables which he more or less had to himself and low and behold he spent up all his pocket money and had to go to the hole in the wall gang for some extra dosh because he had bought so much and I was dead chuffed for him as he piled his bargains into his car heading straight to the Auction.

Well done Brian. Good man, fair play and what a lovely way to stick two fingers up at the ones who laid in their pits and forgot about the sale. Bottom line, besides doing Truro the people carrier travelled to Mitchell offering further bargains however he was delighted with the morning’s takings of well over five hundred pounds.
The other reason I have cancelled Truro on Saturday’s is that we have from this week Car Boot Sales every Sunday at 12.00 noon that’s going to be all year round.

Mondays at Falmouth at 10.00 am cancelled!
When I negotiated with the Falmouth Rugby Club for Mondays we agreed to start on Bank Holiday Monday which as you know was successful, the following week was rained off and we arrived this week to find that the Fairground has set up for two weeks and is taking up all of our selling space and no-one told me. I agree the fair should be in Falmouth for their Community events but it would have been nice to have been told because there is nothing more to upset our regulars than to have share the venue with the ‘bloody fair’ They hate it!! Come on you were a kid once yer moaning old Minnie's?

Bottom line; Bank Holiday Mondays at Falmouth at 10.00 am only from now on but of course we are there every Friday at 12.30 pm.
Falmouth Rugby Club was our first ever Car Boot Sale back in 1989 and we have grown to love dealing with the regulars and locals who come to our sales. The grounds are in dreadful condition and the dangerous Car Park needs completely tarmacking which the club cannot afford. Several years ago I used to be on the Committee of the Club which I found as a waffling load of old Rugby balls and boring old farts and the ‘fall asleep’ meetings ill managed and ‘going nowhere’ so I gave it up. I did have ambitions to become the Chairman but my lack of Rugby knowledge was a handicap, my interest would have been to develop the club into a proper Community Centre and turn the clock back to when they had Bingo for the old darlings and where the schools could return for their sports days and running tracks.

Long Rock; Car Boots Cancelled
We have deliberated long and hard about Long Rock and its future but have decided not to run any further Car Boot Sales on this site. We planned to restart on Wednesdays because Rosudgeon turns away so many sellers so a late afternoon could offer those disappointed sellers somewhere to sell and earn some money instead of going home and unpacking the car! However, we are starting MITCHELL on Wednesday soon at 12.00 noon date to be announced.
We must compliment and thank the Landlord of Long Rock Margaret who has been totally cooperative with our efforts to introduce successful Car Boot Sales on her lands. Thank you. X

Its FRIDAY and the forecast is not looking good so after inspecting the small space allowed for our Car Boot Sale and the drizzling rain it is the right thing to do to cancel today’s event. Sorry about any inconvenience caused.

One of our regular regular’s left a message on my phone today that went something like this; “Hello Geffers, put a warning out there to prevent what happened to me at Newquay yesterday, someone asked me for change for a tenner and I mustered up the change and gave it to the middle aged woman who scammed me by forgetting to give me the tenner and I stupidly forgot to ask for the tenner so from now on I am not going to give and more change out again, the woman knows who she is (I do hope so) and she ought to she ashamed of herself” end of message!
Well my lover you are a soft touch aren’t you, I wish I had known you were being so generous cos I would have got you to change a twenty pound note then I would have told everyone else “Go to that lady and ask her for change she is ever so generous” dear of her! I don’t suppose the middle aged woman was Polish or from somewhere in Europe as we have had a run of complaints about them especially about suitcases my lover. Now go and lie in a dark corner somewhere and write 100 times “I must not give my money away to strangers and put the blame on them cos I am a silly old moo-face” and probably filthy rich into the bargain! Isn’t that the first signs of getting old dear? X
