Places to V.shop: Wimbledon Boot Sale
Wimbledon boot sale is a heavens for those who love bargains and are not afraid to get their hands dirty. If you have patience and enough determination you can get there anything for nothing! Literally! Many times towards the end of the market sale one of the sellers shouts - everything has to go - all for free! That's is one of these reasons when sometimes is better to go later rather than earlier to a boot sale.
As would entry price suggest - the earlier you get there the better deal you may find - that may be truth if you are looking for something very particular! In my experience its quite good to bargain towards the end of sale when sellers are quite keen to sell the stock even if it means lowering the price.
Wimbledon Boot Sale offers a variety of stock - house removal furniture, clothes, vintage & antique items, building tools, cheap household products, fresh meat & vegetables, crockery and silverware or even old vinyls. For us it has been constant source of artistic & creative inspiration for 20-50p a piece. Well see it for yourself!
Goergous sewing mashine!
Random tool collection - tested! You can find there useful objects for some repair works!
Meat auction - fun to watch!
Old TV - so cool if you have space!
Random but vintage!
