Any big boot sales on tomorrow (Bank Holiday Monday)?

    Have a walk planned, but have a wife with tonsilitis who wants to spend the day with me, so we might compromise on a car boot sale.

    Are there any big ones that anyone knows of? Impossible to find online.

    Try http://www.boot-fairs.co.uk/ ?

    There's one in Basildon that says bank holiday mondays... without knowing where you're situated I can't really suggest any closer.

    Yeah, might have helped if I'd said where I am :D

    Tulse Hill, South East London... so anywhere from Wimbledon to Sevenoaks is doble if it's a big enough boot fair :cool:

    Cheers.

    Seems there has, in previous years, been boot sales at the Hook Rd Arena in Epsom every bank holiday Monday, over 700 pitches, but I've no idea of checking if it's running tomorrow.

    How the fuck do you get to Epsom?
    I was going to go to Wimbledon today but I felt too rough.

    London is pretty crap for car boot sales especially if you don't have a car. The closest I get to one is Brick Lane on a Sunday.

    Ah, bugger.

    Guess I'll just have to drive around the South East looking for fly posters ;)

    Which brings up the question, why do boot sales have such poor representation on the web? There's several sites claiming to be the authority on boot sales but they're next to useless and several years out of date.
