News updates!

Ground conditions are very poor at all of our grassed locations with Mitchell, MABE, Lanhydrock and LONG ROCK suffering the most. We would like to think that all grounds will be ready for the early Easter in 2013 but it all depends on the weather despite the fact that some Landlords invest in ensuring their grounds are in top condition.
SUNDAY 18th November at TRURO was a good sunny day and puddles galore did not put off 80 sellers and over 1200 people attended this Car Boot Sale with BARGAINS galore and stalls recorded very good takings one seller reporting taking of £360.00
Three ladies came in two cars but one of the cars broke down in the sellers queue so we managed to park the broken down car with the rest of the sellers. We will call the 3 Daisy, Maisy and Crazy they had managed to get the car working before the end of the sale and were all ready to go when Crazy the owner of the other car found that she had lost the keys to the other car, correction-she was feeling a bit cold and took a coat off her clothes rail to keep warm and put her car keys in the pocket!
She then sells the jacket with the keys still in the pocket but did not realize till home time! The broken down car is now working ok but Crazy (who had borrowed the car) had to travel to Penzance to collect a duplicate key so Maisy stays at the Cattle Market to look after the keyless car!
To worry Maisy a little bit more I told her I would leave the gates open but there was going to be up to 300 cows & bullocks arriving soon for the following days Cattle Market sale and hers was the only car left!
I left around 5.00 pm and phoned Maisy about two hours later and she had just arrived home!

The nice thing about this story is the brilliant sense of humour these lovelies had about their plights and no-one blamed the other but they all had a bloody good laugh! Can you imagine the effing and blinding if men were involved who would have probably gone ape-shit blaming the wife. (I would)

DONT TELL LIES!
We get amazing reactions to telephone enquiries some calling us fabulous, awesome, magic and brilliant when we tell them which Car Boot Sales are on but on Sunday an old geezer asked if MABE was on, I told him 'No because of the ground conditions but Truro is on instead' As he puts the phone down I heard him say to his wife "No there is nothing on" so a few minutes later I phoned back and 'the wife' answered the phone. 'Hello, this is Car Boots Cornwall just to remind you that Truro Car Boot starts at 1.30 this afternoon! I can be such a stirrer at times! Bottom line, the lady and her chauffeur hubby arrived with her saying 'thank you so much for the call' but he ignored me!!
