Welcome to CARBOOTSCORNWALL and our 23rd year of operating Car Boot Sales/Markets in the South West of England. Whilst we are not increasing the price for sellers we will be increasing the buyers admission price to 50p per person from June 1st 2012 with all children up to 15 years old FREE admission.

SECURITY! You are responsible for your own stall and stocks, unfortunately we must accept that someone may try to take something  from your stall without paying, intentional or absentmindedly it is infuriating and amounts to dishonesty. Remember to set your stall out with the valuables at the back of the table where you can pass it to interested potential buyers.  We have had ONE complaint in the winter but as the season gets busier BE VIGILANT!

We have kept to our promise of not increasing the prices for selling at our Car Boot Sales however the Market Traders and sellers who wish to ‘GO IN EARLY TO SET-UP’ will be charged double the normal cost of your vehicle and MARKET TRADERS RATES will apply.  Any persons breaking the NO-BUYING-NO LOOKING-NO RESERVING-NO SELLING rules during the set-up period could well be refused to sell at any of our locations.

Remember leaving any RUBBISH at our Car Boot Sales amounts to FLY-TIPPING all sellers are asked to ensure they and other sellers TAKE YOUR LITTER HOME PLEASE!!

Car Boot Sales are good fun with fantastic people who live in Cornwall and our holiday-makers from all over the UK. Welcome to CARBOOTSCORNWALL at the HEART of the COMMUNITY!

Sellers may bring their dogs but they must be exercised during the sales preferably in the car parks and all DOG OWNERS should remember POO BAGS!!

Enjoy our Community Car Boot Sales-to our SELLERS bring some BARGAINS and you will take money and to our BUYERS bring some money and you will buy BARGAINS!!

Enjoy your season,

Geoff & Louise and the CARBOOTSCORNWALL teams.

But Not Quite Sure How To Go About It?
Well! We're Here To Help - Take A Look At Our 20 Point Guide On How To Be A Successful Booter!

Dont make it an ordeal, do it to raise some funds for you and your family, and get rid of your unwanted items.
Pack your Car, if you use tables pack them last, they are the first things you will need on arrival.
Arrive at least 1 hour before the start time.
If you arrive early you will have set-up time to display your stock.
Display to the best of your ability clean stock, dirty stock DOES NOT SELL and it puts customers off your stall.
Bring some change and keep your money safe.
Price up your stock with labels where possible, have carrier bags to wrap your sold items.
Put clothes on hangers where possible, check pockets! Make sure CDs and DVDs are IN the boxes.
No buying or selling before the HORN sounds.
Do not SMOKE on the stall or when serving customers. It puts your customers off.
Do not buy off one stall and then try to sell the same item on your stall, it amounts to BAD MANNERS and causes friction between sellers!
If you are selling electrical items they MUST work and they MUST have correctly fitted safety plugs.
If you can bring along instruction manuals or assembly instructions for your goods, it'll make them more sellable
Be polite and pleasant to ours and your customers.
Do not say to customers 'its only been worn once or its only been used once' - Baloney!
If in doubt about anything ask for Geoff or Louise, we can advise after 20 years experience.
Dont wear anything nice and certainly wear your old shoes.
Be prepared for a shower of rain, something to cover your stock (see through plastic sheets work)
Control your kids and dogs but bring something to amuse them...Like Grandma!
BRING SOME BARGAINS and ENJOY YOURSELVES!

A special welcome to all of the CORNWALL CARAVAN & CAMPING Community. You'll find here, the most comprehensive list of the various Holiday Parks available in CORNWALL. Simply click the button on the right, or the Caravan & Camping button at the top of the page to enter the database.

Whilst you are in Cornwall why not visit one of our Car Boot Sales, which are listed on our CAR BOOTS page - or consider selling at one of our sales as part of your holiday experience.

Each year we get Caravan & Camping holiday makers who love to pack a few boxes and sell at one of our locations! Earn some money to pay for a night out at one of the larger Holiday Parks that offer Club facilities and Entertainment, or even off-set some of the cost of your holiday!!

Welcome to the beautiful COUNTY of CORNWALL

Due to various incidents and disturbances caused by a minority of Market Traders over the past 3 years I have decided we need a CODE of CONDUCT policy where we will only allow 'APPROVED' Market Traders to sell at any of our venues, therefore we require the following information for our own records. This information will NOT be shown or shared but kept on private file.

Car Boots Cornwall Market Trader Code of Conduct

All Market Traders and professional Car Boot Sellers are required to have FULL PUBLIC LIABILITY INSURANCE with immediate effect.
We require names and addresses of all Traders the address to be in line with the one shown on your Public Liability.
Contact telephone numbers.
Vehicle Registration numbers.
Vehicle type.
All Public Liability Insurance certificates must be shown on request of myself or an appointed member of staff.
ALL sellers and Market Traders Vehicles should display a current road tax license.
Our terms for Market Trader and Professional Car Boot Sellers is £1.00 foot frontage at most locations, there is NO room for negotiation at either The Circus Fields or HENDRA

Market Traders should understand that carbootscornwall relies on CAR BOOT SELLERS as the main part of our business, Car Boot Sales are 'trouble free' events with brilliant Community spirit friendship and atmosphere.

We will not hesitate to take action against any persons who wish to disrupt the smooth running of our events.

Market Traders are having a very difficult time with the main High Street Stores and Supermarkets selling similar items cheaper than the Market. Traders should be original and imaginative in choosing what to sell to the car boot community, Car Boots Cornwall had over 300,000 recorded visits to our location last season, we get the people to our events, it is up to you to offer the right BARGAINS to our public!
