As it's a week tomorrow I thought I'd describe in advance what's going to happen and how.
When the large roller shutter door opens you'll be faced by a concreted floored area with a large U shaped tabled area.
It will be split into areas, each containing everything at a set price. For example, the first few tables will contain everything at £1. Subsequent tables will contain things at higher prices.
You will find plastic carriers to use into which you place your purchases, take a different bag when you move onto different prices. By the time you arrive at the checkout you should be carrying several bags each containing a number of items, but of prices common to each bag.
It's up to you not to mix up the contents, if you do, then everything in that bag will be charged at the highest price item. So it's to your advantage to carefully control what you're doing. There should be no need for anyone to be asking prices but it doesn't mean you can't.
Depending on how many are wanting attention at the same time there will be a couple or three of us available to help and advise. Before 2.00pm we'll expect you to only buy what you need of items of restricted numbers like escalators/JPs/Cash boxes etc. This is to let everyone get a chance however we shall allow individuals to buy bulk, or all that we have of an item after 2.00pm, but don't expect much of a discount.
At the checkout each of your bags will be emptied and priced, if you haven't brought your own bags to transfer your treasures to, then there will be large paper bags you may avail yourselves off and Tuff Crates you may purchase. Don't damage the plastic bags you've been using they may need to be used again.
All transactions are cash, no cards. The BBQ will offer burgers etc, canned drinks and will be set up just outside and a couple of kettles will be on constant boil.
Regarding trade tables, I have been promised three attendees, however nobody has sent me a list yet of what they're bringing, so we'll have to wait and see. Those of you who know me should be assured that I've always been straight and reliable, I have never promised Bryans Bumpers etc that at the last moment fail to materialise ...... so if I hear anything before next Sunday I'll announce it.
At the moment all I can confirm is that I have been told there will be three tables containing big items not part of The Spares Sale.
I look forward to seeing you there.
Have a great day.
Be careful when browsing you don't want to get confused while carrying your own bag and the ones carrying your intended purchases.
