Car Boot Megathread 2011 - Please see first post for details of Car Boots

Recommended Posts

This is my attempt to put all Car Boot Sales on one post so that Forum members don't have to trawl through the entire thread. Please note, This post is only as good as the info I receive from other posters/organizers and I try and give contact info where available so it's advisable to check with the organizers before heading out.

 

Many car boots are seasonal. I've divided the list into sections of regular boot sales (please note that they are not necessarily weekly but take place periodically over the season) and a section for any other one offs this weekend and upcoming dates that have been announced. Plus there are links at the end to websites with extensive details of Yorkshire and Derbyshire boot sales.

 

All feedback welcomed and I will try to keep it updated week to week! Please post and also PM me in case I miss the post. Please can people give as much detail as possible or the info can end up being rather vague. I'll try to attribute details of any one off sales to the poster who notifies me so that, if there are any queries, forum members know who originally notified me of the sale.

They don't start til April - dates above. The first post details others that are all year round. Most notably Oldcotes, Barnsley, Chesterfield. There's a new one Saturdays at Rotherham and tansley restarts this weekend, though I don't know what these are like and I guess Tansley will be weather dependent as it's outside.

Went to Tansley last Sunday, what a joke that was.

About 20 stalls and it started raining.

Well, as the car parking is situated at the bottom of a grassy hill even 4x4s got stuck....

To add insult to injury the gate for the exit was manned by a 16 year old that would not direct traffic therefore whenever you got moving you had to stop because of the queue to get out was getting bigger.

Be a very long time before we visit that one again...

I have just seen Hillsborough Arena dates for 2011 and they are being very greedy now the licence rules have changed!! Those of us who run charity fundraising events are left with no dates for the Sheffield 6 area, thanks a lot Hillsborough arena:(

I felt that Hillsborough Arena already had too many last summer because it was largely the same people at each one selling the same stuff, so I can only imagine the deja-vu feeling will get worse this year. I'll probably go to the first couple and then not bother.
