If you are the sort of person who just cannot resist a bargain then car boot sales will be right up your street.

Perhaps you will pay a few pounds for something which turns out to be worth hundreds.

Or maybe you won’t be so lucky but will still come home with some interesting and unusual things you just love.

Rather than paying full price for an item, perhaps you want to see if you can get it second hand for a fraction of the cost.

Or you might just like a good rummage.

After all, one man’s rubbish is another man’s treasure.

If you're planning on having a big clear out yourself and want to make some money from all your unwanted stuff you can also set up your own stall at a car boot sale.

Here we list car boot sales in and around west London and the information you need if you want to be a buyer or seller.
