Carboot Mega Thread 2015

Recommended Posts

Marsh lane was rubbish today freezing cold. £10 for cars bowshaw is round the corner they charge only £6.00. People those avoid marsh lane don't miss much. Only three lanes today and it's always freezing cold up there. New car boot Rotherham stadium hard standing and staff are polite and lovely. Marsh lane is out of my car boots list.

Very disappointed this morning when we turned up to Marsh Lane to find out it had been cancelled.

 

Organiser can't be bothered to let anyone know when they cancel.

Went to New York Car Boot, total waste of time. They are charging too much to stand and to park. One of the stall holders was telling the others about Thorpe Hesley Car Boot, which is on next weekend so to be honest think the one in Rotherham next week will be even worse. Everyone there was complaining, about the costs.

Yes Rotherham was disappointing. There were 8 cars selling. The £2 to park is excessive but maybe they need it for the staff wages - there must have been at least 6 staff running it! Also the long walk from the buyers car park to the sellers was not good, especially as there were dozens of car park spaces right next to the sellers.

Things have changed since Ebay and Facebook pages where people can sell things without leaving their house. 30 years ago before these I used to sell at car boot sales and anything between 100 & 200 cars would turn up at 5.30 in the morning!

Went past one recently and there was only 6 cars present.

Just wondered if carboot at Thorpe Hesley CC was better attended this morning, taking weather into account?

Yes, it was busy, would easy say between 80-100 stalls. With some great bargains to be had. The rain wasn't really that bad, got there around 6.45, there was a sharp shower that didn't even last 5 minutes and that was it.

Any more feedback from yesterdays car boot at Thorpe Hesley and High Green CC would be greatly appreciated.

 

We are always looking for ways to improve.

 

Thanks
