​A “Boot Sale", also known as a car boot sale, is a popular event in the UK where individuals gather to sell a variety of second-hand goods rom the trunks (boots) of their cars. It's similar to a garage sale, but it typically takes place in an open area like a parking lot rather than at someone's home.

 

It will attract buyers looking for unique treasures or great deals.  Join us for an exciting opportunity to showcase your goods at our upcoming boot sale on Saturday, April 13th, 2024 (see details above). With limited space available, it's first-come, first-serve for vendors eager to participate. Reserve your space by completing the application and submitting only $15.75 including tax.
