As a newbie about to do his first car boot, could someone point me in the direction of a popular car boot local to the Sheffield/Rotherham area.

 

Being my first attempt a few pointers would be welcome, are electrical goods allowed to be sold?

 

Thank you.

Depends which side of Sheffield you are at.

 

South side, I'd suggest marsh Lane on Sunday.

 

North side, I'd say Thorpe Hesley cricket club this sunday.

 

Electrical goods are normally allowed, but you'll obviously get asked if they work. If you can prove they work (batteries/generator) you'll get more for them.

 

Take plenty of change and I wouldn't put price tags on stuff. It puts people off.

 

Hope that helps

 

Jim

 

PS If you've any football programmes, badges or tickets I'm interested!

Chap at Donny car boot has a box full of Warhammer 40000 stuff for sale, he has been there for the last couple of weeks. It's all new and boxed. I don't know how much as it doesn't interest me.

We went to owlerton last sunday, and there were only 9 cars there! It was really empty. Which is the best one around the hillsborough area to go to?

 

 

 

now that the hillsborough arena has ended .i'm more inclined to check this one out ... 70p entrance fee trumps £2 rtn bus fare .. there's one bus per hour to get to loxley ( the other bus takes you long way and i'm looking at 40 mins bus journey) 61/62

Thanks Ben, yes definitely an acquired taste!!!

Do you have any details of the carboot at all as I can't say I've ever come across it.

Thanks for letting me know.
