yes, I have helped at this kind of event many times. I think it is easier for the buyers as all of the say 12 - 18 month clothes are in one place, so only have to look at itmes in the right size or category, and they only have to pay once at the end.
There is the organisation before the event, sending out the tickets, then on the day sorting all the stuff before the sale, then sorting it all out back into seller numbers at the end - so quite a lot of work to put on.
But, all the tickets of sold items are kept, and a % of the sale price deducted for the charity - this means that the more you sell, the more you give to the charity, and you don't feel hard done by if you have to pay a tenner for a table, and then only sell £20 of stuff.
Anyone tried this? I went to a sale earlier this year with individual seller stalls. I've received the registration form for an upcoming one, which says it is a ticketed sale, with no individual seller stalls. Everything will be labelled and organised into categories.
I just wondered if anyone had tried this and if they thought it worked better than the individual seller stall approach?
