I have attended this booty several times and feel fair in my remarks. I believe many of the regular sellers feel the same way but are tied financially.
First as a seller you pay a minimum of Â£20 per pitch and a maximum of Â£35 cars (vans pay a lot more) if you choose to come earlier-little point considering the hefty Â£5 public charge for those who do.
Yes, it does have a booking system but if you happen to turn up 5 minutes early they will send you away and tell you to return at your appointed time, even though there is no road parking space and even though there is no one waiting to enter?
The time coordinator has no people or communication skills and is very abrupt and rude-this is not a huge site as itâ€™s in a college car park so itâ€™s not like heâ€™s stressed out? You have to speak to him to enter booked or not. Iâ€™ve also witnessed him giving standbyâ€™s preferential treatment and not allocating standbyâ€™s on a first come first serve basis.
At 4pm the staff start walking around barking at the sellers to start packing up.
The customers are great and actually make it a decent booty but I wonâ€™t be going back there to sell!
I headed to Hook road last week and it was excellent, the staff were excellent and so helpful, the pitch was Â£10 or Â£12 I got twice the amount of space as Battersea and the customer volume was hectic! You could enter from 7am and it closed when the last seller left around 4pm!
