News and GOSSIP!

On Tuesday and Thursday last week we shared the grounds at Newquay with the Anderton & Roland’s fairground which raised a few complaints from people who wanted to moan just for the sake of it. We the car booters do not have any absolute rights to use the lands but the Fairground has because they actually are the owners of the land so if they want to come and do another fair I will give them all the support they gave to us on both days which drew record crowds to both events.

At Mitchell on Saturday some sellers arrived at 9.00am to start the queue for the Car Boot Sale which starts at 1.30pm. It is unreasonable to queue that early and I would ask all sellers please do not arrive to Q before 10.30 please.

For the record we received loads of compliments regarding the new spacious car boot lanes which is fairer to both sellers and buyers but you still get the odd group of gas-bags who like to stand around in small groups and in every buggers way just like in the supermarkets and didn’t I get some complaints about bloody dogs with suggestions that we make a CHARGE for all dogs. The worse ones are the emaciated scrawny rat looking toy dogs that are allowed to ‘go on a long lead’ which is especially difficult for those short sighted old twats like me getting tripped up by the invisible leads! FFS!

Some idiot called the Police claiming that one of our sellers was selling stolen bottles of REDEX from his ex employer which amounted to a total of about forty quid in value. The Police duly arrived and carried out their investigation which took about an hour disrupting the smooth running of our Car Boot Sale, within minute like Chinese whispers the rumours started as people came up to ‘have a look’ and add their observations to whoever would listen.
Bottom line; The motor mouth who rang the police in the first place should have had the courtesy to advise any member of my team of his intentions, the Police should also have had the courtesy to notify at least one our management team that they were on site. Politeness costs nothing they would expect it from me wouldn’t they? Its the Community Stupid! However as a matter of fact our sellers do not and did not like the idea of the Police at Car Boot Sales, the majority of our sellers and buyers enjoy the ‘time out’ friendly atmosphere at our sales and as a point of interest the Police have only been called to any of my sales a maximum of 6 times in 25 odd years so to make a 999 call and waste ‘police time’ from any of our sales amounts to absolute stupidity 999% of the time.

Anyway back to the Car Boot a great turnout fantastic atmosphere and loadsa bargains but we still have the problem that MITCHELL is too busy. Most of the land surrounding our Car Boot Sale is Duchy Land so it is unlikely they would allow us the use of their nearby fields for extra parking, even if they did consider the rent would be prohibitive. Manager Rachel is saying “let’s do Saturdays & Sundays at Mitchell” any suggestions will be welcomed! Must congratulate the Landlord David Leggo for the way in which he presents the fields at Mitchell, we get more compliments about Mitchell than any of our 11 locations.

SUNDAY at MABE! Down on sellers as rain was forecast but a good crowd of buyers bought thousands of BARGAINS including antiques gold and silver and of course loads of household items clothing and kids toys galore. The sellers of the second-hand boxed toys ‘almost in as new condition’ had sensibly kept the original boxes and were able to charge realistic prices with two buyers showing me toys they had bought as Christmas pressies, nice idea. All I ever got as a kid for Christmas was a book and a box of liquorice allsorts and I used to have to share the bloody allsorts with the other kids in the home.

Now then, two very regular Car Booters who go to all the sales told me that my ears should have been burning because at Hayle today someone was “aving a right go about me” telling any person who would listen “That Geoff bloke is losing is Car Boot Empire wot ee as built up cos I mean ee as lost Truro aint ee cos your council are taking that over and all the rest are finishing soon so I reckon ee as add it” Do you recognise oo talks like that”? Of course it’s JIM you remember “I park Cars” Jim or Jimbo to his friends. And where was Jim standing when ee was aving is moan and groan about me? Ee was standing at the gates of Hayle waiting for them to be opened for the car boot to start and ooze idea was it to make buyers queue in the first place, it was MINE you old sod!! Some people are telling me you are looking your age son.

Now then, to put you completely in the picture we are starting Car Boot Sales at MONKEY TREE on Wednesdays! And Jim, so as you get your facts right we are changing our Saturdays at Truro to MONDAYS at Truro very soon because the farm machinery sales do Saturdays and no-one else is open on a Monday with Car Boot Sales so now you can spread the word that the Cattle Market is NOT CLOSING DOWN dear! Start times to be advised.
Ps; Jimbo, you has a right to reply my lover?
