The last time I was at Bowlers, I was wearing a hi-viz vest and blowing a whistle.
Them were the days....!

Although if the computer fairs are anything to go by, it is big, busy, and a free for all on stolen hardware and pirated software.

The car boot is big. I think it's 15 per car.

This carboot sale is awesome good facilities and enough space inside to 'rehouse' outside pitches if the weather's terrible. Great bargains and generally loads of buyers. Last one we did, about a month ago, just with household stuff, book, toys, clothes etc we made 200+.

I have never been in the winter months to the car boot but desperately need to sell and this is the only oen I know that is indoors. So I think I may take a trip one sunday morning to suss it out before going. I have neversold here either but a friend did it early in the year (ie before summer) and made about 90 which is good enough for me hahaha

If you definitely want an indoor pitch I'd seriously recommend booking first! Just look for their website and their numbers are on there.
