In the end I sold a fair amount but only made £17 - and it costs a tenner to get a pitch anyway! So not much good on the money-making side but fun all the same and I got rid of a lot of stuff, mostly teddies. Some guy showed up at five past 6 and bought a big stash of teddies - he took 11 in all! Or at least he thought he did... I wanted £1 for each toy and he kept saying he'd only give me 50p. Because he was buying so many I agreed and it should have come to £6 but then he only had £5.50 on him! And he kept saying, "50p discount, 50p discount"... I was pretty mad but he left the bag of toys with me so he could come back and pick them up later on. So when he'd left I took two out - an Eeyore, and a huge fluffy Care Bear. So in the end he only got 9, serves him right! I didn't sell those two later but anyway, I would have been mad to think I'd let them go and got totally ripped off!
Anyway, I also sold some bags, sunglasses and jewellery. I think we're going to go back next week on the Saturday which is meant to be busier, and I'll sort my stuff out better then. I had clothes that no-one was really interested in so next time I'll take more books and glasses and things, and I think I'll put up wee posters with offers on. I think I'm getting the hang of it!
I'm a bit knackered now though, so I might go for a nap! I went for some drinks with V last night, in Boteco do Brasil, one of my favourite Glasgow places. Good music, good food and a very nice hot-but-knows-it waiter. I like to think I might be a favoured customer seeing as how I spent a small fortune on cocktails last time I was there!! We had a lovely time but I was a right grumpy-arse this morning! I kept muttering, "This had better be bloody worth it" all the way to the car boot sale. Definitely time for a snooze now.
