Choosing a good car boot sale that suits you're needs.
This is an important factor to having a fun and succesful day. If you have time, go check out your local car boot sales and boot fairs first, as a visitor. This will give you a valuable insight as to how the events operate and whether they are suited to the car boot sale items you wish to sell.
Many large car boot sales now have websites that will list times, prices and dates. However, these are not always strictly adhered to so it is worth checking them out in person. While you are there take a few moments to chat to the stall holders about the event. The information they can provide can be a valuable insight and may be helpful when you are choosing where you decide to sell your boot sale stuff.
Some car boot sales are one-offs but there are also many regular events and almost all of these will advertise in local papers, online in local 'whats on' websites or even have their very own websites.
Pitch fees, times and rules vary for all boot sales so so make sure you have the correct information about the car boot sale you choose.
