A car boot sale is a great place for bargains. Today I went to have a little look at a large one in Swansea for an hour or two. I ended up buying two bonsai books called “Pocket Bonsai” by David Prescott (and Colin Lewis as consultant editor!) and “The Essential Bonsai” by Ken Norman.
Both contain some great pictures and information. It’s always good to have a bit of extra knowledge to read up on or just to have to hand if you need it. They came for the huge price of 70p for the two! One has 9.99 on the cover so it’s a big saving.
It’s always good to check out the car boot sale for bargains on the weekend whatever sort of things you are looking for. One guy was even selling a motorbike…
For the non-UK visitors, a car boot sale is a place where lots of people wanting to sell things meet up every weekend. They all park their cars in the car park or field and set out their junk on tables. People come around and check it all out and if they like something they ask them how much it is. This starts at first light on a Saturday and Sunday morning (about 5:30am)
Explaining it here it sounds quite odd but to us British it’s a normal weekend!
