We welcome you all to our large well run events. All our car boot sales are held on Sunday in Bromley.

Boot sales like any other large retailing area, attract many types of customer and sellers. Most people are selling unwanted items from their houses and garages etc. There are however, traders that make their living by selling products at boot sales. You can more than likely get very good bargains from these more tradition traders. Most buyers are people that come out on a nice Sunday to get a bargain or two. Again there is another type of buyer, the collector/trader. Be aware that these buyers are also making their living by buying items that they know will fetch more money in a shop or at auction.

All this activity makes the boot sale a very popular and healthy trading environment.

Please note it is an offence under the Knives Act 1997 to sell knives to anyone under the age of 18, the selling of alcohol is also prohibited.

New and often experienced boot fair buyers and sellers forget one important thing, most boot sales are in the summer months, it is not uncommon for people to get sun burnt or suffer sun stroke as it is not always obvious that the sun is so strong. So remember to bring some sun tan lotion.

There are no receipts or guarantees from the majority of sellers at the boot sale. You must be sure of what you are buying and if its electrical get it tested before you buy it.

When you come to the boot fair on the farm you are a guest of the Organiser. The land is not a public right of way and is private land. The Organiser has the right to legally refuse entry or ask any person to leave without reason.

We hope you enjoy your trip to our boot fair and that your sales and purchases make you want to come back for more…
