Default Rally etiquette

A lot of shows have classic & vintage vehicle sections including emergency & commercial vehicles that may have been fitted with 2 way radios. Another thread reminded me I have a few ex PMR radio sets like these...

Would I be able to put a couple for sale near an engine I am showing or isn't it the "done thing"?.

Depends on the rally, some you can, some you can't.
I work on the principal that you can sell, unless told otherwise at registration.

It's down to the section marshal / rally but selling a few SE related items to fund the running cost have never been an issue. Doing a personal car boot would be frowned upon.

Personally (from the other side of the ropes) I like to see 'useful things' on offer along the engine line, others regard it as clutter and say it gives the hobby a reputation for untidy presentation. Ultimately it is of course up to the rally organisers whether to allow it or not.

Depends on the rally, as has been said already. Our now defunct local rally had an auction on the Saturday evening so selling on the line was forbidden and the steward did police it, some events (Lincoln comes to mind) allow items that stallholders (who are of course paying for their pitch) are unlikely to be selling, mostly engine related stuff is OK but not car vacuum cleaners, kids toys etc.

Ask the steward, he will either say yay or nay!

I like to see some items for sale along the engine line

A. as long as its engine etc related
B as long as it is displayed sensibly and tidily

But I dont like to see clutter and non engine related / car boot stuff
or untidy scattered items.
If everyone had and could use common sense it would be fine
but unfortunately there is always one with loads of plastic tat
or car items.

A few rallies of course have a club sales area where you can shift your gear with a small percentage going to the organising club which is an excellent solution.

Thanks for the replies, I think I'll look for another outlet to dispose of my old radios then
