Yes, we are running a B&B. This remains one of the most popular attractions of Colours and we're keen to make it run well. In previous years we've had feedback that you dont like long checking in queues and overflowing tables. As a result we are going to continue with lasy years process which seemed to work well.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Pricing:
Check-in is 20p per item and a 10% commission fee applies to all sold items. Full T&C will be published with the form but the usual statements of left at your own risk and if not picked up we assume you've gifted it us apply.
 
Checking in: 
We will run two checking in lines;

Queue 1 (by the wall, which will have tables so you can write the forms out, if you've not done it before hand) - a maximum of 2 forms per queuing session can be completed.
 
Queue 2 - For those that have fully pre-completed the forms - a maximum of 4 forms per queuing session will be accepted.
 
Put simply - if you want to put a large number of items on the B&B you queue more than once. 
 
What's allowed:
 
We'd love to take it all but there have been persistent issues with dumping items which have a low level of interest or are difficult to manage. Therefore:
 
Items which will NOT be accepted :-
  • no boxes of mixed books and magazines (A bundle of securely tied together magazines is ok as a single item) 
  • no 'multi-item' boxes - everything must be individually ticketed and priced
  • no non-wargaming material
  • single items that take up lots of space eg large magazine collections may not accepted. Check before.
 Some common sense guidelines on what does sell and does not sell, should also help:
  
  • old rules particularly GW are hard to sell - please don't bring
  • old videos and even DVD - tend not to do well
  • made up plastic kits don't sell and are hard to display - again please don't bring 
  • items that take up a lot of display space - that 4' square castle may look good but in reality is nightmare to handle. Check before bringing
  • nicely presented items will have a better chance of selling, at a better price - i.e. a sturdy box will go a long way 
  • if you think it won't sell on eBay for a good price then don't bring it - it generally won't sell well here
  • price to sell and have a best offer price
