Sunday Car Boot Sale at Wyke Down


It's been a whole week since I've posted and some of you who follow me on Twitter will know it's because I'm desperately trying to pack all my things before me and Liam move into our new home in just two weeks time! Needless to say I'm very excited and spend most of my time tending to house related activities; one of which has been trying to declutter and get rid of some things I no longer need. As these things are mainly clothes, shoes and accessories some of which I have never even worn, I've been selling them on sites like Depop and something I recently tried out is a car boot sale. I have been to a car boot sale once before and I remember picking up a few things like a china teacup and saucer set for 20p which has lasted me for 5 years, so I decided to see if I can 'recycle' my pre-loved items.

I went to my local Hampshire car boot sale which is held on a field near The Wyke Down pub and this Sunday is the second Sunday in a row where I'm happily stood selling my items - it's turned into a really fun activity! I also love taking a break and wondering around the sale, I have even bought a pub style chalkboard for our new kitchen for a mere £5!
On average, I make £30-£40 in 4 hours from selling items which I no longer need for prices starting from 20p and going up to £5. It's a car boot sale and I think one thing to remember is that people shop for real bargains and if you're looking to sell you things for £10+, it's really not the right place. The cheaper I mark my items at, the more items go - which is really the goal when you're trying to get rid of things!

Talking of accessories, I'm currently obsessed with my Double Cross Sun and Moon choker and I've been wearing it all the time for the past week! Double Cross are a really cute jewellery company who make grunge and vintage inspired chokers, rings and bracelets. I love the boho feel of this choker and it looks great worn with summer dresses! Chokers with a black cord also always remind me of one of my favourite films, The Craft!

I'm back at Wyke Down again next Sunday to try and sell some more of my oldies, but goodies! Any tips from you guys on how to make a successful sale at a car boot?
