If it's a tad damp, like of late, look up the Calvers inside table top sales. They are well patronised. We do one once a year and normally she shifts over 95% of the stuff.

Field End Road is a good one but get there early !! I did this one a couple of years back and took lots of money :-) If you're selling - beware the ones who mob you as you arrive as they steal from you :-( xxxx

Which is a very good point. The one we went to at the Polish (Calvers Table Top) the other month was badly organised.

The setup time was the same as buyer time (07:00 Sunday) so you had no chance to get organised.

I stayed in the background whilst my 2 did the setup but fortunately I didn't spot any thieving.

I must admit I was unprepared for the mobbing :o I was selling mobile phones and I had some decent Rayban sunglasses etc. I caught one lad trying to steal a phone luckily - but some theiving sod did get a pair of glasses and left me the empty case :(
