Are there any 'unique' items at these sale days which (apart from price) are unobtainable any other way ? .......... possibly not.
So ..... it comes down to economics.
It costs me about £50 in fuel and about 10 hours lost time to attend a 'sale day'.
So ..... it's got to save me £50 in cash in my pocket now ...... and 10 hours of time ...... That's probably a completely lost whole day ..... to make it even worth thinking about attending ........ er, ......
Suddenly, I think I'll phone around, or search on the net for what I need at good prices, from other suppliers ...... I'm surprised sometimes at the deals which can be struck from good suppliers who will do a deal to secure a 'bargain' for both them and me.
Sale days ??? ......... every day is a sale day isn't it ? ......
I'm not planning on going - even on a quiet day, it takes forever to buy something, I can't imagine what it will be like with hordes of beeks descending on the place. The best bit of it is the time to chat with the chap running it - he knows his stuff, and when the local flowers are about to get going!
I've got to pick up some apiguard from Windsor on Friday evening...dusted the hives with icing sugar and found 1 mite on the sticky board - time to treat them.
