It doesn't matter what car boot sale you go to, how big or small it is, or what time of day it is, there are some items that you are just guaranteed to see as you wander up and down the rows hunting for your bargain. You know the kind of thing, the ab roller with the green handles, the obligatory foot spa, the golf set with only 5 irons and the York weight set which has been gathering dust in the garage for the last 3 years. And don't forget Hamlyn's All Colour Cookbook, CDs of waterfalls and whale sounds, and the Tango and Cash DVDs. It is now our firm belief that there is an evil car boot troll who sneaks around depositing these items with the sole intention of hiding the real treasures.
So this page is our tribute to such items, because without them a car boot sale would barely qualify to be called such. And should you be feeling left out and concerned that your stall does not stock such quality items... don't worry, we've sourced some for you. Who knows, you may even be able to turn a profit.
