Useful Terms For Traders Vocabulary

Post by Martin Cowley »

Just wondered how many of us have fallen for "slightly exagerated" terms used by organisers,things like, when describing the expected mop turnout at a 1st time show
A.Estimated.... used in terms such as "Our estimated amount of mops is 20,000"
that means 2 zero's are added for luck
B.another is "choice of pitch space" which means that those traders who came last year arent doing it again ,so plenty of empty space...
anyone one else have any useful terms that they have heard in the past :D
