There is usually a car boot sale in Swansea. This is held on a Saturday 8:00 til about 1:00, located in the car park by Singleton Hospital and the Welsh National Pool. I believe it costs 5 per car.

Saw a sign today on the road from Gowerton (roundabout near The Wave and Harvester) to Fforestfach about car boot sale in Julians on Saturdays but couln't read any more. The sign was on the roundabout that has turning to Garden Village, then turning to Fforestfach and another turning to the road with car garages on (CEM Days and others).

Sorry if that's a useless description!!

I will try check it out again but don't go that way everyday.

Yes but the Multi Storey car park is Low Headroom so if you have a van you will not get in unless you are prepared to carry your items up 4 flights of stairs there is a lift but hit or miss. And they are not open all year but it is on again now every fortnight.

Clydach market Runs a boot sale to its on a Wed, Sat, & Sun indoor but please check if you are going there.

Rehola Market Neath on Sat (Indoor) If you have any new stuff to sell (thats more than one item of the same) they will charge you the same rates as the market traders Per foot frontage.

Carmarthen (indoors) and outdoors first come first served basis.

Another vote here for the Singleton Hospital one on Saturday mornings. I'd recommend getting there very early, especially if it's a sunny day. My dad and I got there by 6.30am one nice morning and only just managed to get a pitch! Likewise with the Carmarthen Showground one, get there early if you want an indoor space.

Smile Llanelli Multi-storey boot sales

Guys for those of you still looking to flog some of your unwanted clutter, or those of you after a bargain, the car boot sales are still running at the Multi-storey car park, Llanelli. They are running every Sunday through until November. Running from 7.15am-1pm

Cars and vans (transit) are now only 6! 3 pitches are only 9. We don't charge an entry fee like other boot sales, so it really is the best deal. It is in the shade so sellers or buyers won't bake in the heat either. Refreshments available.

Plus support a local charity in the process, all proceeds go towards the Cynheidre Heritage Project lmmrcoltd.com

Any questions then please visit our website and email us.

Default Car boot

Julians Car Boot in gorseinon , (next to Day's garage) is on sunday mornings.

It does get quite busy there if its dry so I'd get there early. I've never done a boot sale there myself but my wife has dragged me there many many....many times , and then onto Llanelli one after that !!!!!

hi,
i have just found this site:
www. carbootjunction .co.uk
(it wont let me post the link as i am a new user, but if you go to the website above, click find a car boot on the left panel, then select swansea from the town option and hit search, it will come up with details of 5 car boots in the area.)

not too sure when the next one in the Liberty is, wether is this sunday or the next, if i find any more info will post it on here!!

=]



*****more info*****
have just read on the liberty stadium website that the carboot is now open every sunday due to its popularity, but the post was back in april. best bet would be to ring them on 08712 223 224.

I get rid of my household clutter every few months or so and always go to the one at Singleton Hospital on a Saturday morning.
Good for selling and buying, well organised and mainly on tarmac.
The main downside is the early start needed to guarantee a pitch - no later than 7am in good weather and earlier if you can face it.

The one at Julians is a bit scraggy.

I have been told that the one in Llanelli is also good but I have not been there.
