    Hi guys,

    I am looking at setting up an indoor market/car boot sale on a weekly basis in Galway City. Before we book a venue or set dates we are looking to get some feedback as well as some traders booked in to sell at the sale. If there is anyone who currently sells in Galway and the surrounding area and would be interested in selling at the market you can drop me a PM for further information.

    Though prices haven't been set, they would be in the €10-20 region for cars, vans and market stalls. This would also be a year round venture as it's hopefully going to be indoors and safe from the winter!

    So car booters, market stall owners, clothes/arts/crafts sellers, food and drink traders, entertainers etc, if this is something you could be interested in making a success drop me a PM.

    We are aware that there is a Saturday Market in town but feel that combining the car boot side of things will add something to this market.

    Thanks.

    went to this car boot on Sunday last found it to be very poor. It was 20 euro in which is expensive seeing as there isn't much to it. There were about 15 cars but not many buyers at all. Felt as if it was just a way for some to kill a half an hr. Opened at 8.30 and meant to run until 3, some sellers left at 10 and everyone was gone by half 1 - 2. The upside to this car boot sale was the facilities were excellent as in there were proper toilets and a coffee shop, still won't be returning to this sale!
    Anyone know of any GOOD car boot sales in the Wicklow - Dublin area???

    Car boot sales are hit and miss as it depends who turns up on the day, what sporting or other events it clashes with (All Ireland) last Sunday, what the weather is doing etc.etc. All worthwhile car boot sales can be found by searching this thread or at: http://collectireland.wordpress.com/car-boot-sales/ It was never easier to find reliable information. :)

    €20 in for a seller or the public?
    Edit.I see you were there for a while so presume that's the cost for a car.

    My car leaks a bit of oil. Will it still be OK in the hall? :D

    Fairy House Market
    Hi guys, new here so please be kind.
    Hoping to set up stall at the above market, but have a few questions......

    I have visited the market on a number off Sundays to check out foot flow, with it being good, I am a bit worried on spending power with customers, as their seems to bit of empty hands walking out.

    Is it as good as people/ traders say???????

    What is the cost of a pitch and can you set up anywhere on site ie first come/ first choice. (spoke to a few traders to day and they weren't saying to much)

    I tried to speak to one of the organisers to day, but without any luck, will ring
    him again, but I wanted to ask the wise people on this forum their taught s.

    Thank you in advance.

    Just had it confirmed.

    I take it this is due to the rather bleak weather forecast? :(


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 13,549 Judgement Day


    No, I think that they had already decided not to go on beyond October. :)
