Post Re: at the bootsale
yeah its a popular thing in this country. even shows on the tv about it.
lol

personally i think its a place full of a lot of weird people that i can get a better bargain then on ebay.
obviously the only downside/upside is you dont know what you are going to find.
and you dont know if the weather is going to change and you get soaked

Haha yalls UK terminology is quite tricky for me. I just realized what "boot" ment.........it means trunk here in the US. So do people just open the trunk of their cars and let you graze around until you find something?

And JT, what does your "Quality!" mean?................Like "Awesome" or "Nice!"?

I really need to find out which car boot sales are any good in the newcastle/North Tyneside area as every one i`ve ever tried has sucked and I`ve found absolutely nothing worth buying! Which is all the more tragic when you consider the amount of different and varied crap i collect!
