Even though you are registered on the list to the police, this does not garantee a sales stand. This depends on any cancellations from regular sellers. When you are allocated a stand, you will be contacted by SMS during the course of the week and latest Saturday evening. There’s approximately 30 to 50 sellers waiting for a spontaneous placement, in turn, defined by when their e-mails are received in our mailbox.
Have you not heard from us by Saturday evening means that you have no sales stand the next day. This is due to the fact that no, or few, regular sellers have cancelled their spots. All sales stands are reserved until 11:30 Sunday morning.
Have you not received any sales stands you may call us on Sunday morning, around 11:30, phone: 93851781, to check if there is an opening, as many regular sellers wait until Sunday to make their cancellations.
We have no possibilities ourselves to make phone calls on Sundays due to the work load. Any available spot will then be given to anyone who calls in, disregarding the Spontaneous list.
The spontaneous list is meant for sellers who which to sell 1 to 2 times, based on 5 to 7 alternative dates, and not over a long period of time. Sellers can not be registered on the list to the police on a permanent basis, as this one would be too large. This is a privilege for regular sellers only.
Applications that do not include the information requested above, will not be added to the list sent to the police, and have therefore no opportunity to be on the spontaneous list.
Sales stands up to 3,0 x 1,5 m are allocated , which normally allows for three pieces of equipment. All profiling can be done on the longest side, as well as 1 of the short sides. Equipment such as tables, cloths racks and the like can be rented out.
