Statement; PAR MARKET & FALMOUTH RUGBY CLUB !

On Thursday at 10.00am we opened that gates at Par Market in anticipation of holding a Car Boot Sale at 12.00 noon however the BBC had forecast showers during the day therefore we expected a low turnout of sellers and from 10.00 am onwards showers were in the area. At 12.00 noon there were 8 sellers waiting for the Car Boot to start however our rules are that there must be 12 sellers minimum for the Car Boot to start. As a gesture of GOODWILL towards the 8 sellers and in appreciation of the effort made by them I allowed the Car Boot Sale to go ahead and that the 8 sellers who braved the weather could sell for FREE also that any buyers would also be allowed FREE admission again as a gesture of goodwill on behalf of Car Boots Cornwall and of our Landlords at Par Market.

Several potential sellers who apparently live local to Par telephoned on numerous occasions from the comfort of their homes to enquire updates as to 'will it or will it not go ahead'
My last minute decision to allow the 8 sellers to 'go ahead' completely wrong footed the 'stay at home sellers' but I can assure you that the great "Car Boot buyers" about 150 turned up for their FREE entry and they spent like wildfire into the bargain, and the sellers took very-very good money! Ha bloody Ha! I spoke to them all as they were packing up their cars to go home at 1.15pm and they were delighted with their adventure and 'loadsa cash' even though it was damn cold and windy, one seller took £74.00 and gave me a lovely wet kiss into the bargain (I must stop men kissing me) which proves 'Those that hesitate loss out' my lovers!

Thank you to all concerned in particular our Landlords for allowing us to go ahead as the gesture of goodwill without us paying rent! Not many landlord like that around!
Thank you!

Now then lets talk about Falmouth! Louise and I received 30 odd phone calls and texts 'would Falmouth go ahead'? we told the callers we will go ahead if we get enough support and decent weather! We arrived at the Rugby club at 11 ish and it absolutely pissed down very heavy rain on 3 occasions and at 12.15 there had only been ONE seller arrive although we did notice several loyal buyers drive in and out of the grounds, however at 12.20pm we cancelled the Car Boot Sale and headed home!

Then the abuse started with rude phone calls at about 1.00pm because the sun had come out and there was NO Boot Sale and why do we advertise a Boot Sale if it doesn't go ahead?? Simple answer is this, if there aint no sellers then its CANCELLED so to those rude callers (men) engage your brain before resorting to insults. Perhaps you could ask someone to read this to you dears!!
