There is supposed to be a good one in Denham, I havent been myself but have been told its pretty big and busy so could be worth a 10-15 minute drive. I know they started doing them at Bovingdon, but dont know if they are still doing them and havent been either.

Hi lady E, don't know if you are still looking in, but I actually tried selling at the Denham sale and was very, very dissapointed

clearing out a job lot of pristine/as new/unused pc/gaming stuff and consumables, childrens novelties, books, CDs and videos

the week before and after i took around 140 and 120 at two different car boot sales (less entry fee). at denham with the exact same goods I took just over 40 (then less entry fee), it was very dissapointing

forwhatever reason what I sold successfully elsewhere at the same labelled prices was not popular in denham. clientel in denham was far more culturally diverse, especially eastern european shoppers. other two car boot sales were more middle england

in denham shoppers appeared to be looking for different things and a lot more value for money. in the other two sales, there was an element of haggling, but in denham it was all haggle and silly offers.

i would never even chance there again

might be worth taking a look first at what seems to be popular there. pitches around me with tools and s/h clothes seemed to attract far more interest than childrens toys and bric a brac ornaments, although i don't know how they were doing pricewise

Smile Car Boot Sales Watford Herts

There's a new giant car boot sale every Sunday in Bushey, Watford on Little Bushey Lane, behind Costco. Found out about it in the Watford Observer. It was really busy last week and we sold loads of our unwanted and second hand things from home. Also had some new never been worn clothes and unwanted gifts and took over 200! Hundreds of buyers - and no haggling - what a bonus!! Will definitely do it again!
