Leeds MAG’s second Bargain Hunt challenge had been scheduled for November last year but due to the horrendous flooding that the North of England endured we had to postpone it until the end of February.
We based this fundraiser on the daytime TV show of the same name, only we have to buy something for less than a fiver and then we sell them all on eBay. The winner gets a trophy.
The day dawned bright and sunny and 15 local members turned up to do battle at Otley car boot sale.
We met in Wetherspoons for breakfast then, suitably fortified headed up to brave the crowds and try raise some cash for MAG.
After an hour, we all met back up at the pub to evaluate (a.k.a take the mickey out of) each other’s “bargains”
The auctions were hotly contested and eventually after a late flurry in the bidding, one of our newer members, Martin Thompson, emerged victorious with his shrewd purchase of a Beatles LP!
In total we raised just over £150 for MAG after all deductions and had a bit of a laugh along the way 🙂
The Leeds MAG Bargain Hunt Challenge is now live. All items are listed on eBay under Leeds MAG Bargain Hunt and will be on sale until Tuesday evening. Why not take a look at some of the
tat top quality pre-loved items on sale? All proceeds go to MAG’s fighting fund.
Leeds MAG went to Otley car boot sale and were challenged to buy one item to sell on eBay – ALL profits will go directly to MAG. All you need to do is click on “Leeds MAG bargain hunt” and all the items we bought will magically appear for your perusal. Feel free to bid on the (ahem) beautiful items chosen by our discerning members – remember ALL profits go to MAG to help protect riders rights. The winner will be whoever makes the biggest profit from the 99p start price and will win the Leeds MAG bargain hunt trophy for 2015. This auction finishes at 7 pm GMT on the 22nd of Feb, so get bidding!
Pop along at 12 noon to Otley car boot sale www.otleycarbootsale.co.uk (Google Maps)
Buy one item for a maximum of a fiver.
Meet in “The Bowling Green” pub, 18 Bondgate, Otley, LS21 3AB (Google Maps) at 1.15pm prompt to appraise (take the mickey out of) the purchases. Then each person does their own write up to sell the item and we put them all on ebay. The person that makes the most money will win a prize and all money raised will go to MAG.
