A British Car Boot Sale.

The season for the great car boot sale is upon us. Most people have been to one, but if it's your first, just walk around and enjoy

There's no code, don't be afraid to ask the price and if you fancy having a barter, you're at the right place. But I am a bit old fashioned if you like. These people aren't having a half price sale.  So don't be too cheeky if haggling.............

Well, what part of the country is it happening at?  This, of course, isn't written in stone. This is my personal opinion.  If any of you booties out there can tell me,where you think is fantastic. I genuinely would love to hear from you.

I have lived in Wales, London and currently I live in the South West of England.  But, Sheffield gets 10 out of 10 from me.  An early morning,  gigantic sale just outside Sheffield, on your way to Chesterfield. Then one that starts at midday back towards Sheffield, that's if you've got the stamina...

Get down to Cardiff really early in the morning, you can fit Splott and Bessemer Road in. Back on the M4 towards Bristol, around the Almondsbury interchange, you have Trench Lane car boot. This goes on into the afternoon. If you plan a trip to Somerset find out what date Castle Combe is on, this is monthly.  Firstly make your way to Standerwick cattle market Frome. This car boot is a must to drop into and if its raining no worries, because its one of the few that have indoor and outdoor facilities. Make your way toward Castle Combe via Lacock. How wonderful if this all falls into place! A quick hour at Lacock car boot is heavenly.

North London is one worth dropping into. St Augustine's school Kilburn Park Road NW6 it's held in the playground with a lot of cars and a lot of buyers. We'll give Taplow car boot,  the biggest in Buckingham & Berkshire a thumbs up for its late start, size and prices .

I am going to stop there until next issue. We'll head down toward the ferry to France and have a look at the Braderie de Lille, which is a huge event that takes place the first weekend in September every year. More than 200 km of stall space. A two day flea market/car boot. 

So happy hunting all you collector maniacs, booty bargain hunters and experts.
