Review & Tips for Sellers from a previous New Stallholder
 
We arrived in the dark at 4.55am and there were already 4 rows of cars parked in the bays at the Myer end of the shopping centre. I spoke to a few people and one them admitted to parking her car at midnight and returning at 6am.
A volunteer walked around and gave each driver a numbered sheet to display on the dash.

At 6.15am another Rotary volunteer allowed the cars to enter (according to your number) the undercover area outside Myer and Woolworths entry. (South entry)

Once inside the area you can choose the bay(s) for your stall. You may either park your car in the bay or unpack then park your car outside of the area (which is cordoned off with mesh).  We had 2 cars and chose to park & unpack then relocate the cars.   It’s good have a choice of bays but I don’t think it makes much difference where you’re located. Buyers usually do the rounds!

We found there was not much time to set up as buyers enter at 7am (and even before that other sellers are walking around to see what you’ve got!).

TIP: We had lots of clothes and I would suggest that you have them on hangers, ready to hang. (Unfortunately I had the clothes in bags - not helpful)

TIP: Have a few racks and trestles to display your goods. Alternatively put a sheet on the ground.

The next 3 hours went quickly.
Payment is made to a volunteer who comes around to collect $10 per bay. You sign & receive a receipt.

Tip: Take lots of coin and change. I was offered $50 notes. I had a bumbag to keep the money safe.
Almost every buyer wants a real bargain and will haggle over a $1.

As the day progressed we lowered our prices which were already very cheap.

The flow of buyers was constant, sometimes 8 people in our 2 bays, other times 1 or 2.

We began packing up around 9.40am. Cars are not permitted in the area until after 10.00am.

Do NOT take your dog.

It is NON-SMOKING.

Hungry Jacks was good for a breakfast burger at 9am!

We took chairs to sit on however we didn’t sit down at all so don’t bother!

Very well organised by the Rotary Club of Scarborough although I wish there was more information online so I knew what to expect.

Hopefully this review will give others an insight into the process and procedures.

Enjoy your day! 🌺
