INSIDE or OUTSIDE its your choice at TRURO!!

Inside or out? It’s your choice but SUNDAYS winners were the insiders! Firstly let’s deal with the first 12.00 noon Saturday Car Boot Sale at TRURO and I was very impressed with the turnout of 25 sellers. Because of the weather we were down on buyers but they certainly bought well so as a gesture of goodwill it was a FREE day for all concerned.
Thank you to all of the regular buyers who turned up to support the Saturday Car Boot, all sellers were given a £3.00 off voucher for next Saturday so hopefully it will be decent weather.
Like most of our customers I always look at the weather forecasts but they are so unreliable particularly the bloody BBC who gave no indication at all that heavy rain would hit TRURO during our Car Boot in point of fact they said it would be a dry day so when I arrived at Truro to see over 20 sellers queuing I thought it would be safe to conduct a survey INSIDE or OUTSIDE?

People seem baffled when given the choice because the insiders have to carry all their stocks into the cattle pens which is good exercise but bloody hard work for some people and it is always a good time to hear some of the couples falling out over something or other, I don’t know why men don’t just shut their gobs and do what they are told to do by their dear partner wives who know exactly ‘who is in charge’ and how to organise a boot sale! The survey carried out revealed 50/50 so when I started parking the cars I divided the traffic to the ‘chicken insiders’ and the ‘brave outsiders’ and the sun was shining so several changed their minds at the last minute deciding not to go inside. (Silly sods)

The sale was well under way with up to a thousand people mingling amongst the stalls, great atmosphere bargains galore but I felt sorry for the insiders cos not many sellers had covered their pitch fee when all of a sudden the bloody heavens opened and the rain thundered down on the cattle market roof which caused an absolute tidal wave of people running in from the ‘brave outsiders’ you could actually see the rising steam from them as they had got drenched in no time. It was heaving it down still more people were arriving and suddenly the sellers were selling ‘big time’ the heavy rain lasted about an hour which extended the sale therefore those insiders did so well with some takings over £250.00 but spare a thought for those outside whose stalls got DRENCHED!!

Paul who helps at some of our sales decided on behalf of his wife that they would sell outside but she thought the opposite so I was not surprised to see him packing up the car and his dear wife was sitting in the front seat looking decidedly glum. She tells me “I said we should go inside but he would listen to me” ‘Yes, I know what you mean dear, I told him to go inside as well but he wouldn’t listen to me either’ I replied! The look on his face was priceless plus he was drenched to the skin and yes I am the sh*t stirring bastard he has just called me!
Despite all there were no complaints loads of bargains exchanged hands and it is good to see so many parents are buying their kids Christmas presents at our Car Boots especially toys that have been loved and cleaned to perfection and recycled to another child brat without the cost of the box and wrapping but by the end of Christmas Day they will probably be so bored of their presents anyway. Been there-done that!

Someone very kindly gave Lou and myself a bottle of wine today which was a totally lovely gesture but we do not celebrate Christmas which we believe is time for a lot of people to spend money and credit card buying which they cannot afford. When I was a kid I got a book and a box of liquorice allsorts for Christmas worse still I had to share the allsorts!!
We don’t give each other cards or presents neither do we do Christmas cards it is not because we are tight fisted we are in the second-hand business so all Lou and I need to buy is available for next to nothing from our sellers.

There was considerable moaning about the BBC and their weather forecasting skills and how they get their facts so totally wrong but it always amuses me to see some of the dreadfully hideous dresses the local lady ‘weather forecasters’ wear! (aren't the morning ones some lovely) (nope) I don’t know if they have a wardrobe department for these TV grotty appearances that tell us sweet nothings about todays weather. Most of them wear stuff that looks as though it was given to charities instead of binning them. Get around the boot sales my lovelies and at the end of your spouting on about the weather bit you could say “Do you like my dress, I bought it at one of CAR BOOTS CORNWALL Car Boot Sales, it was only one pound fifty don’t you know”
