Wimbledon Car Boot Sale – 24 October 2011

carbooted went to Wimbledon Car Boot Sale, which is open Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday, making it one of London’s most prolific car boot venues.

Mike Collins, who runs the show, said: “Car boots are better than eBay and  antiques shops. People are starting to realise that this is the way forward.”

We also met Leo, who comes every week and is the proud owner of more than 3,000 brooches, which she has collected over 25 years. She said: “Every so often, I’ll pick up a pendant just because I like how it looks. Then I find out the chain is made of gold, so I cash it in and spend the money on another brooch!”
