Re: How would I translate "bring and buy sale"

Loisea,

Thanks - that's the most helpful yet - yes, we do a bourse aux livres, so I can see it might work.

Anhow, just to put the finishing touches to the affiche - but I need to change  the date we agreed....

Re: How would I translate "bring and buy sale"

I am so pleased to see that no-one has dropped a bombshell on you to say that its illegal to do what you are organising even for a charity, that you will need to organise permission from the prefecture 18 months in advance, etc etc etc.

Certainly the rederies organised by the communes have to abide by all the controls and restrictions and I know they have come down very hard on pariculiers that have dared to sell off their unwanted stuff., the only selling that is permitted around here is by the Trocs or Emmaus.

And that is why we stopped our very very profitable braderie, the paper work in our dept was so 'lourd' in the end and so many restraints on us that it we volunteers simply ran out of energy.

As we had lots of money I wanted to run a raffle with the first prize of a car, but that too was interdit, first prize could only be worth a relatively small amount.

This is simply something "entre nous".  Members and invited friends only - as would be in a typical bring and buy in England.  Difficult to see how anyone could object to that - it's for Inner Wheel, already well organised and within the rules even here in France.
