First Rate CAR BOOT Sale

EVERY CAR BOOT SALE SHOULD BE RUN LIKE THIS!
Saturday 2nd August and we decided to go 'booting' to get rid of some of the stuff piled up collecting dust in the garage. I'd spotted the notice on the roadside during the week when returning from Cromer in the Radio Car. It was by the Aylsham by-pass and said "The late one - car boot starts strictly at 11am."
That means you don't have to be up at the crack of dawn to grab a pitch but there was much more that impressed us about this one. We got there at 1045. The entrance was divided into two. One for sellers and one for buyers. Amazingly, the buyers were all sitting in their cars waiting for the off at 11. As a seller were directed to the next pitch in line by a man with a megaphone !! We weren't pounced upon by anyone and had just enough time to set up the tables and get out our wares. At precisely 11am it was like a large pair of invisible gates had opened. The buyers vacated their cars and streamed in. It was all so well organised. Every Car Boot should be run like this.
We did a roaring trade despite the fact that we had a steady shower for about half an hour. My sea fishing rod found a new owner, a woman got an extra long curtain pole for a knock down price and at last that old card index box was taken away. We'll use this car boot again. Look what I spotted too. Only this week on the Early Show I'd been asking where all the old soda sysphons had gone. Well here's the proof that they're still about.
