Before the sale:

  • Each seller makes a donation for a book of tickets for a fixed price (currently 50 tickets cost £15.00 +£2.50 P&P and fees). Sellers can choose to buy additional books of 10 tickets at £3 per 10 tickets up to a total of 100 tickets.
  • Once payment is made tickets will be posted out and seller number allocated. We will provide all envelopes and postage for the tickets (part of the £2.50 P&P+fees added on).
  • The seller fills in the tickets with their allocated seller number, a brief description of the item, its price and then they attach the ticket to the item to be sold.
  • All items to be sold are delivered to the selling hall on the Friday (19.30-21.00) before the sale. Sellers must put out their own items.

 

During the sale:

  • On the Saturday (Sale Day!), the doors open to allow the (long!) queue of buyers in.
  • After buyers have selected items they wish to purchase, they take them to the "tills" where the tickets are removed and totalled up. The buyer pays the total price and then leaves with their goods.
  • Although we try to deter theft, some theft does unfortunately occur during the sale. Items are put into the sale at the seller's own risk.
  • At the end of the sale, any items that are left unsold are sorted according to the sellers' numbers. These must then be collected by each seller between 13.45 and 14.15 on the Saturday afternoon.
  • Please do not enter the hall before this time, this is for the safety and security of your items. 

 

PLEASE NOTE WE HAVE NO STORAGE FOR UNCLAIMED ITEMS SO CANNOT STORE ANY UNSOLD ITEMS TO BE PICKED UP AT A LATER DATE. ALL UNSOLD ITEMS MUST BE PICKED UP BETWEEN 13.45-14.15 ON THE SATURDAY AFTERNOON  

 

After the sale:

  • All the tickets that have been removed from items that were sold are then carefully sorted according to the sellers' numbers. We aim to make a bank transfer to each seller for the total value of the goods that they sold within 10 days of the sale happening.
  • 10% commission is charged on all sales over £25, which goes entirely to the nominated charities.
