We are trying to plan a market sale in Moose Jaw just looking for some input from you all on who would be interested in attending and what date would be best for doing one?
Right now we are tossing around the idea of September 17th, October 1st or pushing it back to Oct 15th.
I personally think that an earlier sale before the auctions start up is a great idea, might encourge some auction go'ers to try out a market sale with the knowledge they can fall back onto an auction later on in the fall.

Input please!

Kind of looks like we may be able to make it to this one as long as nothing comes up. I would personally think that the earlier the better would be nice. September 17th or October 1st would be my choices.

This would be a great opportunity to buy/sell birds again at a market style sale while the weather is still decent this year...
We would be up for this one I think, thanks to Lou for offering a place to host it ! Smile

Any of these dates would work for me right now but I do like the September date best. Very Happy

Lou said that Oct 1st works best for her, and since it is her place we should maybe accomodate her, LOL.

Hi everyone. I'm happy to host our market sale. The reason for the Oct.1 date is because I have some work to do to get ready for it and my friend who was going to help me passed away last Monday. I will still be ready but it will take a little longer. I am really looking forward to seeing the people I have already met and to meeting a lot of new people. Lou Smile

So October 1st is the confirmed date? I will be attending for sure and am willing to help. It looks like we are planning 2 more sales in SK. for September one in Simpson and one in Wadena. I would like to advertise in the producer and include all 3 sales. I would like to place the ad by Thursday for a month starting next week. Does anyone see an issue with any of this? I think all these places are far enough apart that they shouldnt effect each other. Lou if you need help let me know I'll do what I can to help make it a sucess. DLC

Sounds great
and maybe some of the members can make a donation at the sale to help cover the western producer ad. just a suggestion so no flames please
it matters not how big or small
also when you start a new topic of the sale we can kind of list what we might be bringing.
just another suggestion

will have Darwin put in for a holiday tomorrow when he goes back to work
so we will for sure be there
Joe

Great to see you all are planning another market style sale. Looks like you are on the right track for everything.

The best method of advertising I have found is the "bulk mail outs" with canada post. Its well worth the money. Anyone who has attended my sale knows that the amount of people who attended my sale this year was MUCH larger than last year, and that was the only change in advertising.

The majority of buyers, to have a good sale, are acerage people who just want a few birds - target them! Take a day and drive around to all the acerage areas and send out 200 flyers per area. No need to send more than that, as word of mouth will help from there. I think its something like 10 cents per flyer.

Saw the ad for the sale Listed on Kijiji
it looks real good
and the poster Idea sounds good if you do that let me know and I can hang some around here.

Also wanted to ask
I see it says about booth booking
We would like to book a booth is it okay that I ask on here or do I need to email
you instead.
and does anyone have a idea of what they are bringing maybe we can start a thread on it??
Thanks
Joe

In order to pre book a booth you need to pre pay your booth as well. So send Lou or myself an email and we can set up how to go about payment.
Also yes start a new thread on what you will be bringing, would be nice to have that on hand for people that email wanting to know what might be there.
