    My first boot of the year is this weekend on the 20th so hopefully if the gods of vinyl are smiling I might end up with some more crap for my man cave.

    Bargain!

    I've done a few in the past but got so fed up with certain groups of people* wanting everything for nothing that I now prefer to take unwanted stuff to charity shops, I'd rather give it away than let the vultures have it.

    I've come across these before. They use repeated visits with their silly offers and the language barrier to wear us down - it would probably work on me, but Mrs. P won't stand for any nonsense, and has on occasion sold to someone else cheaper just on principle.

    I increase the price each time they ask.

    When I used to do car boots many years ago (and for me it was a living not just a novelty day out) I was at first surprised at how the punters wanted to buy decent stuff for next to nothing.

    Slowly it dawned on me that if they had any money they would be shopping at Harrods and not at a run-down greyhound racing stadium during a pre-dawn rainstorm.

    Yes and thats why carboots are not really a midday stroll and finding quality stuff you like.

    As you say the dealers will be unloading cars and telling them to hurry up way before the official opening time. Theres clearly money to be made pouncing on the newbies.

    Im the sort that likes to wander round with an ice cream at a reasonable hour of the day. Of course there is nothing left that hasnt been raked over so I dont bother any more.... well very rarely on a sunny day with a vain hope of finding something small and cheap.

    Its the sharp end of trading and plenty of dodgy dealers at the bigger ones. A 7.5 tonne truck full of crap like smashed up amplifiers and old computers...straight out of the recycling skip and all laid out on a tarp in a field...lovely

    I think its amazing what people do buy...old toasters and kettles...most of it is junk anyway. I think some of them have serious money but everybody loves a bargain eh
