about us - car boots cornwall
Geoff & Louise Camden Wiles have been organising car boot sales since 1989 and would be pleased to hear of any other sites that may be available within Cornwall. Do you have suitable land or outbuildings that could earn a substantial rent package for up to 10 hours during our PEAK SEASONS, lasting up to 28 weeks. Please contact us to arrange a visit to your venue!

Contact Geoff on 078 078 078 88 or email us at enquiries@carbootscornwall.co.uk

Geoff Camden-Wiles
Geoff was born and educated in Croydon, Surrey. After spending 3 years at WINDSOR in HM The Life Guards he started his career back in Croydon at the famous Fairfield Halls as stage manager at the Peggy Ashcroft Theatre.

In 1964 he joined BUTLINS as Entertainments Manager at Filey and Skegness, applying for the position as General Manager of an entertainment complex comprising of Hofbrauhaus Bier Keller, Scamps Discotheques, Studios 1-4 Cinemas and Star Bingo & Social Club in Newcastle upon Tyne. Up to 18,000 customers weekly would attend the complex, which in the 1960's and 70's was a huge success.

In 1982 Geoff took over as Operations Manager at PONTINS in Brean Sands, Somerset where he met his lovely wife Louise. In 1989 they both started CARBOOTSCORNWALL at Falmouth Rugby Club and this year celebrate 21 years, with a potential of other locations being added during 2010.

At the Hofbrauhaus we employed 30 barmaids to serve this potent bier in HB stein glasses-the good old days!
Louise Camden-Wiles
Louise comes from Newcastle up Tyne and planned a life studying law and become a Legal Executive, but decided to join Geoff in setting up Car Boots Cornwall to is present day success. Louise is very popular with the regulars and the business has a good reputation of fairness to the sellers and buyers alike.

Gone are the days when it was the 'dealers only' who got the bargains, now the CAR  BOOT SALES start at the actual times advertised and at the 'sound of the horn' all buyers get the chance of the bargains.

This has been very successful, however there are still the odd dealers who harp on about the 'good old days' when they could "help the sellers to unload their cars" but Louise & Geoff believe in FAIR PLAY all round. During 2009 over 300,000 visits were made to our Car Boot Sales and a lot of the credit goes to ensuring the very few rules are strictly adhered to by all and sundry.

Our COMMUNITY CAR BOOT SALES are widely spoken of in the South West and the majority of our customers, sellers and buyers support the most popular Car Boot Sales in the South West of England.

DAYLIGHT ROBBERY!

Only yesterday I was praising Rita for her honesty and saying we Car Booters are generally an honest lot!

Today a holidaymaker drove into our Newquay Car Boot Sale then went to another parked car and unscrewed an indicator light from the side of the car and walked away.

The whole incident was witnessed by two teenage young ladies who were sitting inside the car unseen because of tinted windows!
They immediately told Mum and she told me she was going to call the Police.

Less than 4 minutes the sirens and arrival of two Police cars whilst the man was in complete denial about the theft.
He was arrested handcuffed and charged with theft and damage.

Thank you to the Newquay Police for their prompt attention in dealing with this incident.
For the record the last time Police were called to Newquay was in 2001

99.9% of tourists are fantastic but you always get one idiot!

Geoff
ps; Marge missed the lot rushing home to fix her wine shelves-hic!
Posh Pat missed it-the other Pat missed it, Kim didnt see a thing, Laura looked the other way and Bubbles was still in bed!
