The Brocante was in various locations around the village but with increased popularity came a few problem idiots who parked in front of the fire station and people who drove and parked 'creatively'. Plus the cash machine was empty by 9.30 as usual. The atmosphere was brilliant and 99.9% of the visitors seemed to enjoy Tisbury with the refreshments being remarked on and the Methodist Church munchies being popular. A few home sellers forgot to close gates as they set up and were inundated with dealers a few of the exceedingly rude persuasion. You all need to remember they want to buy your bits to sell at a profit, times are hard so they get rude. Easy solution put a sheet over the tables tell them you are not ready as contrary to what they say you are in charge as to when you open and prices. There were 60 official stalls at Tisbury addresses and many more pop up stalls where people opened after they saw the weather and only had a few bits to sell. This with the official paid stalls for dealers at various locations saw the range of goods go from childrens clothes to collectors vinyl to top end antiques via a legless pre war shop dummy with parts missing.
