    Get making, baking, creating and digging around the shed, house and loft for any items you would like to sell at our market which is being held in the event shelters at The Lincoln Show. It will be held on Saturday morning from 10 a.m. to midday, in conjunction with tea/coffee and biscuits which will be supplied by us, but of course any further donation of cakes/biscuits would be much appreciated. You just need to bring your own cups/mugs.

    As we believe space will be an issue we feel a maximum 6 feet wide stand for each seller would be the ideal. Also to help the MHF kitty we think a £2.00 donation from each seller would be a nice idea.

    Please note, nothing illegal to be sold or even given away.

    Any questions please ask.

    Hi
    No need to book------first come first served, IF the weather is ok we can overspill outside if necessary--------bring your own table, as long as it fits within the 6 feet allowance.

    All profits on the hats go towards FUN

    We have stayed in the MCC area for the last 3 Malvern shows and at Peterborough this year, the amount of stuff that gets sold in that area would equip more than one shop

    This market is not open to the general public, purely for MHFunsters - selling and buying. It's a just a way of raising funds for the group.

    This event will not be promoted outside the forum and is to be held in the event shelters so it is not openly selling.

    You can sell anything as long as it is legal.

    If it's in our marquee and not advertised outside we should be OK. But the security can be a bit anal. We were told once that that a small sign on the rally marshal's gazebo, which said "Marshals have raffle tickets for sale":Doh: Was against the rules and should be removed, only traders who have paid a lot for their pitch are allowed to sell:Doh::Doh::Doh::Rofl1:
