What else are bank holiday weekends there for?
I absolutely love going to car boot sales, having a mooch and getting a bargain… This one was different though, I was a seller. I haven’t sold at the carboot for years, since I was little and then it wasn’t really me selling I was just tagging along with my mum.
A wake up call of 5am (pops was already awake but in the room with my sister who was visiting) mad dash round to get ready, sort pops out and pack the last few bits up and we headed out.
This was the view where our car boot sale is held. It’s amazing on a sunny day, which this day was not it was freezing!
Before we had even got things out the buyers had started having a nose… sold an iron after about 5 minutes (we should have held out and asked for more) made our pitch fee after about an hour (£8 fee) and then it was pure profit from there. It started raining around 11.30 so everyone packed up and left. There was a carvery near by so we went and had lunch and tried to kill time as the car boot sale do a raffle in the club house (we didn’t win) such a good day and got rid of some bits and made money! We will be definitely doing another one soon.
What’s the best thing you’ve bought at a car boot sale?
Have you ever sold at one and was surprised at what sold and what didn’t?
Until the next post,
Are and Pops.
