    Car Boot Sale in North East? 19th Mar 06 at 6:37 PM
    With all this talk of car boots sales I am really keen to go to one. Does anyone know of any in the North East ? Preferably near Sunderland or Middlesbrough.
    Would love to be able to buy some bargains and may even have a try at getting rid of some of my unused stuff.
    Cheers

    Hi

    There is a really good car booty at Hexham Auction Mart every Sunday from 1pm - if you want to sell stuff you need to get there early though as people start to queue from about 10am.

    I did one there a couple of weeks ago in the freezing cold and made about 70 profit on a load of old tat! It costs 10 for a pitch.

    We know what happens to people who stay in the middle of the road. They get run over.

    Redcar used to do one on a Sunday not sure if its still on.
    Also Hartlepool (in the shopping centre) they have a weekly car boot type market, its on a Wednesday and have many stalls in the area which houses the outside market.
    Sedgefield is Sunday (or used to be) and Thursdays.

    A good General market is Catterick on a sunday, they have loads of stalls and gets quite busy.

    i will keep my eyes open for others, you often see the bootsales advertised in the free papers.

    I used to love the Norton one, used to goto Sedgefield on the morning (which I think is poor now) and then through to Norton for the afternoon.


    Don't know how up to date this is [url]http://www.carbootjunction.com/

    I clicked search then Durham, brought up ones like Seaham, ChesterleStreet etc

    Hello lil_me.

    There's also a car boot sale on Saturdays at Seaham (the opposite side of the road to the Sunday one). It's only been going a fortnight - but you can get some good bargains there.

    Question for old norton carbooters, i have been to redcar today, did very well, got sunburnt!!! While i was there someone told me that Norton Carbooty was starting again next week. Is this true????? If so what time sellers and is it in the same place????
  • vixen05
    norton car boot
    Yes its true, Norton car boot reopens on Sunday 26/ 04/09.
  • vixen05
    Norton
    Yes, it's true Norton car boot is back from Sunday 26/04/09. Same place, same times
  • Jen_31
    Website is up

    http://nortoncarbootsale.com/

    Starts the same week that redcar boot sale is not on

    Obviously planned so that everybody goes to Norton, as Redcar is usually packed with people. So dodgy goings on me thinks. 70p to enter and all. Wish i owned a car boot sale

    Redcar was on, sorry for getting daggers out *blush*
