Sunday Boot Sale

I heard a rumour that the boot sale was stopping next year, and reverting to a car park on Sundays. Apparently. The Japanese owners of National Car Parks need that revenue. (Do we own anything these days ? ).

At least it's not a pesky EU foreigner investing in the UK, am I right??

Carboot sale has been pretty quiet in recent months. Think people have run out of tat to shift. Or crappy weather, and of course Brexit

More. Likely it due to it being called a vintage boot fair so just overpriced old tat.

It would be good if another venue could be found with car parking available. What about a school playground? It seems that the rent at the back of Waitrose was rather exorbitant. Don't the schools need a bit of extra cash? Couldn't it be in the precinct?

It was perfectly ok as a proper old school boot fair before those two got their hands on it and tried to rebrand it and make it 'new Lewes'. I am glad it has failed and they have been humiliated. The Nash Street boot fair is thriving and whilst it's a bit of a trek, it is by far and away the best on offer in the area.

Did it once and the manager seemed more intent on extracting as much as he could for the pitch as I had a van for the day, rather than encourage me to regularly sell my crap so I reverted to Nash / Rainbow. Short sighted and a failed rebrand. At least they gave it a go I suppose. Although not a good one.
