Printers , ink all that is tax deductable , out of your PROFITS, if your business is run correctly there are many things that can be claimed for , on the ebay thing , yes we have to buy Bwrap , but iam talking about the people who charge packing just for the sake of nipping a few extras for themselves .

Road tax, as far as I know, is not tax deductible. Really not sure about MOT... but I would presume so.

But being deductible doesn't mean that you don't pay for the item/running costs - would that it did - so they're still business expenses that have to be paid for.

Oh, I tend to stock up at the supermarket the night before. With the exception of Doncaster, which has very reasonably priced grub, I've never paid for fair food or drink.

Tight as a gnat's chuff? Me?

But even buying one-off lots of food for that evening or for the beginning of the following day is more costly than at home where you can buy bulk and chuck it in the fridge.

Maybe you can just sit and pop them , it's kinda satisfying for some strange reason , why ? I don't know Shrugs

Been there, done that - doesn't hold the same excitement anymore. Putting the dogs on it was fun for a while Laughter

No-one forget my bubble wrap roll though Happy

Well we had a very enjoyable 5 days at the fairs , weather was kind to us , hotel was good as always , didn't buy very much , about a dozen items in total , but a one or two nice ones just the same , met some very nice people as well Happy , so a good weeks break for us , I have to grumble about something (es la ley) , so food prices at the fairs it is , at lincoln we paid £15 for a couple of burgers and coffees, we saw chips for £2.50 and chips and sausage £7.50 , no kiddin' so that's a fiver for a sausage , so if you are thinking of standing at these fairs , forget lalique etc. get a van and do catering , this time next year you'll be a millionaire Rodney.

I should be back in the Cedric Ford Pavilion. Wasn't sure until today if I was going to be able to get to this fair, so nothing's been booked yet. Fingers crossed.

Will likely be bog-standard tables this time around - won't have the new van until October-ish, so everything has to come carefully jammed into a small car. Laughter

Any good? Was tempted to abandon work for the day and have a bimble about, but I had my sensible head on for once.

Got myself booked back into Cedric Ford - hopefully it'll be a good'n again.

Newark is always better in my opinion.
I won't be going to Lincoln again unless the quality improves significantly

Another small point , we get Home & antiques mag every month and quite often they have 2 for 1 deals at these fairs , worth having a browse in the newsagents when you see one .
