I’ve been mak­ing the pil­grim­age to Ne­wark on and off for 20 years, my first vis­its were in those pre in­ter­net days of buy­ing and sell­ing. For many years I ar­rived with a large van full of used mo­tor­cy­cle parts that I’d fetched from my Es­sex work­shop, and sold the lot! In later years I joined the on­line sell­ing band­wagon but still found sell­ing at Ne­wark had plenty of ad­van­tages. Be­ing able to sell bulk is the big­gest and if you keep your prices sen­si­ble you will al­ways do well: hav­ing a friendly hag­gle is part of the ex­pe­ri­ence. Ne­wark is much more than just an au­to­jum­ble, friend­ships forged on­line are ce­mented at th­ese events. I’ve built up a great net­work of traders with whom trans­ac­tions take place at each event. The so­cial side is a ma­jor part of it. It’s a cost-ef­fec­tive way to buy and sell mo­tor­cy­cle parts, work­shop kit and the like. I look for­ward to each jum­ble and it’s one of the more fun ways to con­duct busi­ness and have some plea­sure.
