Louise Clearances

Hello,

I am Louise Camden Wiles and I have been in the second hand business since 1989. I am co-owner of Car Boots Cornwall with my husband, which attracts over 300,000 visitors a year and we have 9 locations running Car Boot Sales in the South West. My vast experience in the House Clearance trade has been gained at Dig & Delve at Swanpool Street, Falmouth, where we opened the second hand shop in 1987, selling the lease in 2001.

During my time at Dig & Delve I have worked with most of the High Street Estate Agents and Solicitors, offering an honest service to all enquiries.

Should I not be able to take all offers of house clearances, I have several professional traders to recommend.

Thank you for your time.

Regards

Louise Camden Wiles

End of season blues!

Tuesday at Newquay Circus Fields; The rains and drizzle that covered most of the South West gave Newquay a break up till about 2.00 pm when the drizzle claimed an early end to the Car Boot where 40 sellers were well supported by spending buyers who took advantage of good bargains.
Almost every Boot Sale there is an incident of some sort that beggers belief!

Lots of our buyers are looking for that special bargain therefore it is reasonable to barter with the sellers, during the 'peak season' the holidaymakers are usually the ones that offer stupid and insulting prices afer hearing the asking price, I have heard sellers asking for say £15.00 and the rude potential buyer says will you take 50 p or 'I will give you 50 p' which is a bloody insult so I was surprised when a very annoyed buyer came to complain to me about the language of one of Tuesday's local sellers.

The buyer had seen a picture on a stall and politely asked 'How much is the picture please'?
"I want eight quid" said the sellers! 'Will you take a FIVER' said the buyer and the seller in two words told the man to 'eff off'

Now I am not telling buyers how to barter nor and I telling sellers they must reduce their asking price but this type of rudeness from sellers does little to enhance our brilliant reputation which brings me on to the numerous (12) complaints I have had concerning a lady buyer who mithers on and on (just like Mavis off the Street) and puts on such an act once she has got the sellers attention!

Her act goes something like this: "well I just dont know if my daughter will like it and its more than I want to pay and it looks as if there is a couple of stitches coming undone, I wonder if it will fit" followed by girlish giggles "Well I just dont know what to do" The seller eventually gives in just to get the wretched woman away from the stall to the STUNNED amazement of genuine buyers who would have paid the FULL ASKING PRICE!!

Well I just dont know, what shall I do?

Geoff
