In the early years.

Loads of our regulars who been with us for the 23 years we have been established will remember the mid 90s when we first started Car Boots at Truro Cattle Market.

Market Traders had a field day selling all the fakes and copies imagineable and I know for certain stolen items were exchanging hands and dissapearing up country within hours of being taken.

But they were fun days, I well remember a market trader arriving at the gate and telling me was going to sell vibrating toys and he had been doing the markets successfully so thought he would give Truro a try. I set the sale up parking the sellers and went to supervise the busy main gate!

The sale had been going well until a distressed woman came to complain to me about the Market Trader! She said its disgusting and would not repeat in front of her two kids of 7 & 10 years what they had witnessed.
I asked her to wait while I find out what had happened but she was adamant to leave, I looked at the kids faces they seemed ready to burst out laughing!

Making my way to his stall I witnessed the funniest ever display where he had 24 willy pink shaped vibrators all batteried up bouncing up and down out of control to the amusement of the buyers and fellow traders.
Apparently the two boys had taken mother to the stall to state 'This is like the one we found in your bedroom Mum'
Its true!
I had to tell him he could still sell them but they could not work which killed the gimmick stone dead but it was a bloody good laugh.

Does anyone remember a couple called 'snatch & grab' I dont want to be nasty to the woman but I understand she stole one of these vibrators and broke all her teeth!!

Its true. Ask Marge
