The Observer has invited its favourite 50 tweeters to name their top three follows – read the article here. But carbooted was dismayed to see that there were no car booters on the list, so we’ve decided to share our own favourite car boot related tweeters…
Avid car booters in London do well to keep an eye on the nearby counties, for new trends and bargains that you wouldn’t find in the capital. @campscamp doesn’t just tweet about the car boot scene in Essex, she’s also got a page on tumblr dedicated to the subject.
CarBootJunction is one of the oldest and best car boot sale directories on the web. Follow them on Twitter for all the latest news and tips on where to find the best car boots in the country.
Closet and Botts specialise in reclaimed and furniture. They’re are based in both London and Brighton so that means they have twice as much specialist knowledge of where to find classic items at bargain prices. Check out their tumblr (http://www.closetandbotts.tumblr.com) to see some of their fantastic reclaimed vintage items.
Capital Car Boot runs a weekly car boot sale in Pimlico which never fails to open, and their twitter feed is a must follow for car booters in London. Not least because every week they tweet a password which allows you free entry after 12.30pm.
