3 Items for sale must be listed on the booking form which you can download here:Bring & Buy PDF, using a separate line for each lot, e.g. if you are selling five identical items, then you should specify each item on a separate line, unless you are selling them as one lot of five items together, when they should be listed as a single item. Please ensure you use the current version (2024) as all older versions will not be accepted.
