    Car boot sale Advice sticky at the top of the forum offers all the advice anyone could ever need. 1st page has some excellent advice.

    Not sure what discussing a blog could add that isn't covered on the thread.

    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.

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