Organiser, I only assume as you focus on 'new items' which is extremely unfair on those selling second hand items as well as the community centre who enjoy an income from the sales as well as customers who would like to come along but are being put off as you insinuate there is a large amount of new items which there clearly isn't.
With regard to the Sale
of new items at an attic Sale
, unless the Sale
is held in open air on land which permission or a license is required from the council there is nothing stopping people selling new safe items much like at specialised fairs and shows as per Sale
of Good Act 1979, Consumer Protection Act 1987 which require only that items be safe and that there be a form of recourse which at my sales there is seeing as we take bookings rather than people just turn up. Also bear in mind most legislation refers only to open air / car boot sales and not enclosed sales with restricted access within private premises.
Even at a car boot Sale
if large numbers of new items are on Sale
this should in good practice be in a designated area noted as a 'market area' but this is not required at smaller and indoor sales.
I did do my homework before starting the sales.
Now I am done arguing over this and your insistance on making negative comments is doing no one any favours.
