Site information
Please Note; No vans or Market Traders. Sorry!
Falmouth was our very first site and we have been running it since 1989.

As you can imagine, by now, we know most of the sellers and buyers.

It is a very popular location, with the community getting together either selling or seeking a bargain!!

Falmouth is friendly and fun, we love the locals and although it is a small site, it is well supported.
The downside to this location is the restricted space we are allowed for sellers.
We do not allow Market Traders or large vans.
No selling-No buying until the horn at 12.30pm
Trailers from £5.00

SELL FOR ONLY £3.00 any vehicle at TRURO this MONDAY 4th only!!

WEDNESDAY at MITCHELL a huge success!

Following the stupidity experienced with Monkey Tree Car Boot Sale we moved very quickly to our regular venue for our Saturday Car Boot Sales, Mitchell and with 49 sellers for the first time and a very generous turnout of buyers who spent well the success is commendable to all concerned. One seller sold an almost brand new X Box for £250.00 to a delighted buyer and the same seller took over £400.00 on the day. Lots of decent clothes, boots and shoes especially kiddie’s clothes sold well and people crowded around a Porsche Car which offered some good electrical bargains and household products. I have every confidence these weekly WEDNESDAY CAR BOOT SALES at 12.00 noon will be very well supported especially during the School summer holidays. It will cost cars £6.00 estates & 4 x 4s £7.00 to sell and all those attending to sell this coming Wednesday will be given a £3.00 off voucher to use either the following week or at any of our locations. Thank you to all who supported our ‘first Wednesday at Mitchell’ and it was pleasing to note that 3 of the caravan owners from monkey tree turned up to sell.

TRURO on Mondays has been disappointing, the main deterrent is the work that is taking place in building WAITROSE SUPERSTORE and a housing section and further Park & Ride into the City Centre. With tailbacks of cars and Lorries entering and exiting Truro via the Truro Cattle Market, the view into our selling area is alive with builder’s materials tractors diggers and heavy plant machinery from the main Newquay Road so therefore the public are difficult to convince to attend.

However as a gesture of GOODWILL on ‘this MONDAY only that is the 4 (forth) of August’ any person with whatever vehicle can sell for the reduced price of £3.00 only! Tell your friends it’s like two for the price of one! Now then, as most of you know I have let Oli and his twin brother and sister Alice (the oldest by about an hour-poor mum) and Brother Henry look after Truro on Mondays and the business has been CRAP so to wind them up a tad I told them I think it is their fault, they are beginning to get an inferiority complex about it especially as I got 49 at Mitchell without really trying! This is their last chance and any less sellers than 35 (that’s 15 each) will be the reason we may have to close down, what a claim to fame!!

“These 3 and their brother Ed have been without doubt the most capable of teams Lou and I have ever experienced. They have shown a complete grasp of our business in a very short time and enjoy being part of a team that provides Car Boot Sales for so many thousands and their enthusiasm in their work is commendable! PLUS they like people! They are all team players and I have every confidence that Car Boots Cornwall will be safe in their hands for the future. Really, a lovely and happy family recommended by our lovely friend Lisa-Lisa”

Obviously we will charge the buyers but it shows our efforts to get more sellers giving the buyers opportunity for those BARGAINS and by the way the ‘main dealers’ are around on Mondays with money to SPEND from bulging pockets from their wheeling and dealing over the weekend!
If it does not work this Monday we will close the Mondays for a short while but the GOOD NEWS is we start our SUNDAY winter season earlier than usual on SUNDAY September 7th at 1.30pm

FLAMBARDS
Buyers and sellers will remember we tried Car Boot Sales at FLAMBARDS a few years ago but we were not successful due to several reasons the main one being that our Car Boot was in the wrong area and not in the main part of the complex. Recently FLAMBARDS has changed hands and I have been in negotiations with the new owners for Winter Car Boot Sales. Now that SAINSBURYS are bang next door to FLAMBARDS I see an opportunity for this site to be very successful for all concerned seeing that it is a hard-standing well maintained location. I will let you know further information later.


LONG ROCK!

Long Rock is a seriously lovely location, you can stand in the middle of the field and see clearly St Michaels Mount. The land was used as a private Cricket Club but for many years the ground were not used. Along comes Car Boots Cornwall we put in new entrance gates cleared up the fields and started our sales on Tuesdays at 12.00 noon. Newquay also starts at 12.00 noon but they are so far apart that Long Rock should in time become a Penzance favourite. Some very regular buyers and sellers support Long Rock it is a peaceful and very friendly location and if you offer bargains to the locals and tourists they certainly will spend on your stall.
