How many suitcases can I bring once I’ve registered?
You can bring up to 2 suitcases for a registered sellers ticket. This allows you 2 Large suitcases per person, dimensions to be no bigger than 55cm or 20 inch and 45 litres, you may also bring alone 1 additional helper but NO extra suitcases!
What happens if I want to bring more than 2 suitcases?
You can purchase additional tickets to sell online.
What’s the size of a sellers space?
The size of stall spaces vary. As a rough guide, we go off the size of a standard picnic rug for the size of a stall space. This is roughly 1.5m x 1m space allocation.
What can I sell?
You can sell anything that is handmade and hand crafted, second-hand, recycled, vintage, collectible, antique, local, designed, sustainable – anything really! However, we don’t allow anything that is mass produced or inappropriate.
I’ve registered for a stall but now can’t make it – can I get a refund or transfer my registration to another month?
No, our terms and conditions are clear that we cannot provide a refund or transfer a registration to another month. We will only provide a refund or transfer if we cancel an event. You can however sell your registered spot to someone else and you could do this by posting it on our Facebook page as we send people there who missed out on a space and are looking to find a space if one becomes available. If this occurs, you will need to let us know that there is a name change to that registered space.
Can I bring a friend to sit with me for the day?
Yes, for any of our regular Rummages you can bring a friend to sit with you on the day. They do not have to register for a space if they are not bringing any suitcases along. You can share your registration space with them as long as the total number of suitcases for your registered space does not exceed 2 suitcases. Occasionally we hold one off events in partnership with other organisations where we are unable to allow you to bring a friend along – this will be made clear in the particular event details.
Can I bring a chair to sit on?
Yes, you can bring a chair, stool, cushion or something to sit on. We also provide some seating for you.
Can I bring a clothes rack to hang my clothes on?
No, you can not bring a clothes rack or any other piece of (large) infrastructure. You must display your wares using your suitcases, there are many creative ways of using your suitcases to best display your goods. There are also clothes hanging facilities within the hall, so why not have a play! Check out our Gallery section for some ideas.
What happens if it rains? How will I know if the Rummage is cancelled?
Luckily our event is within a larger Market, open every Sunday throughout the year. Suitcase Rummage is situated within a well lit, heated hall, therefore there is little or no reason for the event to be cancelled.
Do I need to register and pay £10 to come along to check it all out as a buyer?
No! The admission price to the whole event including Suitcase Rummage is as follows; from 10am is £1.50pp, from 12pm-2pm is £1.00pp. Accompanied children under 12 are free. You only need to register if you want to have a stall space to sell your wares.
