I went to my first car boot sales of the year today – one on Swillington Sports Field just off Wakefield Road in Leeds and the other on Wetherby Race Course (here’s a partial list of car boot sales in Leeds. There are more – look out for signs when you’re out and about!).
I hauled ass out of bed at 7.15am to be first in line for the best bargains – it really does pay to go to car boot sales as early as you can bear. All of today’s treasures were found at Swillington (my first stop) before 8.30am, and after that only Primark cast-offs and ill-advised kitchen purchases (quick thaw plate, anyone?) remained. 6-8 are the golden hours… you can always nap in the afternoon!
Not much, but I’ve been bitten by the booting bug once again, so these pages will soon be filled with thrifty finds once more (hopefully, and weather permitting). How did you spend the Bank Holiday Weekend? Did you visit any car boots or charity shops? Tell your tales in the comments below.
PS – You have until 10pm to enter my Boutique Run giveaway!
