We have the tent but want the rest of the stuff

And so am hoping that there are SALES in Sept

Am I going to be disappointed?

Thanks

Not sure tbh, but my gut feel is yes. There seem to be deals around already - Millets and Blacks both have sales on and Go Outdoors permanently seem to have stuff reduced. Got the boys sleeping bags there not too long ago, reduced to £12.50!

I bought nearly all of our stuff around Sept time in the sales last year - got a half price camping kitchen stand from Argos!!! grin However, I noticed that the sales were even better (especially for tents) in January. Shops obviously want to clear out for new stock arriving. The problem is, if you wait until then and the things you need are sold out you are stuck waiting for the new stock to come in with new seasons full prices! It's worth checking on UKcampsite.co.uk, if people spot a camping bargain they always put up a post to let everyone else know wink

I'd check eBay closely in Sept when all those wannabe campers 'forced' under canvas by the credit crunch having been forced to forsake Spain will realise it's 'not for them' and will sell up- probably as part of the divorce settlement!
