  1. car boot sale

    A car boot sale is a type of outdoor sale event typically held in parking lots where private individuals sell used items from the trunk (also known as "boot" in British English) of their cars. Items sold can range from household goods, clothes, children's toys to antiques, collectibles, and more. It is similar to a yard sale or flea market and is particularly common in the UK and Ireland. The sellers usually pay a small fee for their pitch, or space, but the buyers can enter for free or for a nominal fee.


  1. Car boot sale

    Car boot sales or boot fairs are a mainly British form of market in which private individuals come together to sell household and garden goods. The term refers to the selling of items from a car's boot. Although a small proportion of sellers are professional traders selling goods, or indeed browsing for items to sell, the goods on sale are often used but no longer wanted personal possessions. Car boot sales are a way of focusing a large group of people in one place to recycle still useful but unwanted domestic items that previously might have been thrown away. Car boot sales generally take place within the summer months, however a growing trend of indoor boot sales and all year hard-standing outdoor boot sales are now appearing in some parts of the UK. Items sold can include antiques and collectables, anything in fact that the person wishes to sell, rather like a flea market. Car boot sales are also very popular in parts of Australia, and have a growing presence in mainland Europe.
