Just a quick reminder that this is happening on Sunday.

We're fully booked with 40 tables of bargains, hot & cold food and drinks plus if anyone wants to stay for the afternoon there will be a gaming session.

If you're trading then the doors will open at 8.00a.m

so this is not a show, per se, but just a table sale. Interesting. Wonder if, if successful, the idea will catch on across the UK. Perhaps you could do an after action report please?

Hi Marc, we have been running these since 2004 & yes they are quite successful!
We have space for about 40 tables & for the last 5 years or so they have all been taken with a reserve list waiting.
We normally get about 100 paying visitors with probably another 100 in the Hall from our members & the sellers – who of course are also looking to spend.
Some traders but they are there incognito selling off old or surplus stock or even there own surplus collections.
There are a few other sales & I think the one organised by Ryan McKnight in Penkridge is now a good healthy annual event each January.

They are good fun & the emphasis is on pile it high & sell it cheap!
