Car Boot Megathread 2013- Please see first post for details

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.

You have done a very good job listing all the car boot sales - well done!!

However, can I just make it clear that the WELLINGTON STREET CAR BOOT IN SHEFFIELD CITY CENTRE NO LONGER TAKES PLACE. This folded last year and will no longer take place. :)

Noted Bianco, thanks. Did know this myself, but just missed it from the copy and pasted list.

 

 

And just to add, Grenoside Community Centre is back on the scene. Sunday 7th. Always used to be a busy boot.

Dates for Hillsborough Arena: (taken from their Facebook page)

 

MEGA Car Boots

200 spaces

 

July 21st & 28th

August - 4th, 11th, 18th & 25th

September - 1st

Cars £7,

Vans £10

 

No Need to book, Plenty of room

No sellers before 7.00am

 

These events take place in order to raise much needed funds for our charity. The selling of crisps drinks and sweets

is in direct competition to our own fundraising efforts and therefore

not allowed on this site

Things you might not know about us:

· Hillsborough Arena is a registered charity

· All of the staff you see outside are volunteers

· All money raised is invested in our facilities

We are hoping that the money we make this summer from our car boots will pay for drainage work needed.

During this last year we have provided a base for 12 junior clubs, 2 disability clubs and 6 older peoples groups. If we didn’t subsidise these clubs most of them would not exist.
