    Don't feel as if you have to sell everything. People make very silly offers at the end of the day to get a bargain. I always refuse by saying 'i'm not that desperate for money & it will sell next time'

    Take pegs to hold down the plastic sheeting when it rains, camping chairs, coffee & LOADS of small change. Keep your large notes separate from the rest so it doesn't go missing when you pull it our of your money belt.

    Have fun

    Depends if there is going to be a next time.
    Better to sell something worth £10 for £1 than take it home and throw it in the bin.

    It might bring in people interested in doing a car boot sale who haven't noticed the forum.

    One point: 'Carbootjuction' - should that be 'Carbootjunction'?
