High Halstow Garage Sale Safari

High Halstow Village Proud to Present the first

 High Halstow Garage Safari and Boot Fair

Saturday 15th July 9:30-11:30

What is it?

We are hoping to inspire as many neighbours as possible in High Halstow to hold a garage sale on the same day.  For anyone with too much stuff, this is an opportunity to de-clutter and make some cash outside your very own front door.  For some there’s none of the bother of a car boot sale: no need to get up early to get a good spot, no need to pack everything into your car and no sitting for hours in a traffic jam. For others, it’s a chance to explore the community and pick up a few bargains.

How will people know where the bargains are?

Register by Saturday 8th July  Wednesday 12th July and a map will be produced which can be picked up from the Village Hall on Saturday 15th July from 9:15 for 50p

Who can register?

There will be two ways

1 – Whether you wish the buyers to come to you or wish a traditional stall in the Hall please complete the form and bring to the shop along with your £5.00. Remember the houses visited will be for High Halstow only

Questions that have been asked will be added to this item below

 

Q1 Will it only be for two hours 

A1 This is the first time we have tried to run this and it was a guess based on the number of stallholders. If the number of stallholders is higher we will extend as long as stall holders wish to have their garage open for sale

Q2 Could this be extended to other parts of the peninsula

A2 As this is the first time we have let it be small this time, but if proves to be a success we would look to run another one later in the year covering a wider area

UPDATE ON STALLS

We have stall holders selling the following:

Furniture, electrical & household goods, power tools, toys, books, pottery, cards, tombola, shoes, handbags and much much more. Fiesta Loca will also be attendance to supply food

Not too late to have a stall as will have time to add amendments to the map

Deadline Now for booking your table Wednesday 12th July

    Much interest as yet? Never many takers for boot sale in High Halstow but interested for 2 at my address

    • Gary says:

      Interest seems to be increasing and suspect it will grow over the next two weeks as it will be pushed with further posters going out. It will be necessary for people to book their slot by 8th July to give us a chance of producing the maps. Once we know it is viable then promoting people to go out maybe easier once we know what is out there. Thanks for the question

    Hi . will there be someone going round checking the legitimate sellers as opposed to ones that try selling without donating the fiver.
    It’s a question that needs to be asked as you know it will happen.

    • Gary says:

      I like to think it won’t happen as it is only a small fee, but we will consider someone going round as you have suggested. This is very much a work in progress for something we haven’t done before so am learning on the hoof, but many thanks for your good idea
      Gary
