Tips for Buyers

The Early Buyer Gets the Bargain!

Speed is essential as many antique dealers’ trawl car boot sales early in the morning to stock their shops. If you are looking for particular items, get down early.

Sometimes late sellers arrive when the dealers have left for breakfast and, in turn, can miss late bargains. But this is a rarity!

Due to the ongoing pandemic, we are asking that sellers set up their stalls between 7am -8am, do not switch pitches, and do not pack up your stalls before midday. That pitch is to be occupied for the full 4 hour slot at minimum. This helps us to reduce the flow of traffic in and out of the site and, also helps to respect fellow sellers and buyers.

We have a one-way system in place to help ensure everyone feels safe, with the freedom to browse as normal.

Know What You Want!

At the start of the day many stallholders are short of change, maybe they'll accept a lower price in exchange for badly needed change!
