Site information
Following 11 very successful years in Mitchell we are now moving across the road to TRETHVAS FARM which is a larger location with up to 18 acres for our ever expanding MITCHELL Car Boot Sales, our activities can be seen from the main A30 dual carriageway which should be advantageous to sellers with the potential of more buyers.
We will also hold midweek Car Boot Sales probably on Wednesdays during the main holiday season.

Here is one to look forward to however there are new rules with TRETHVAS FARM in that it will be a NO GOLD PASS location and also large dogs will be banned from the selling areas which may well be the new rule for all Car Boot Sales.

Taunton Car Boot Sales

May I highly recommend that if you are going up country or are in the Taunton area you look up the website of Paul's Promotions run by Paul Stewart of www.tauntoncarboot.co.uk and pay a visit to one of Paul's well organised Car Boot Sale. Recently one of our regulars Orli paid me a huge compliment by saying she had been to Taunton to the Car Boot Sale at Proctors Farm and had she not of known the difference she would have thought that Car Boots Cornwall were running the sale as it was run identical to our group!

This is not just a coincidence Paul had been looking to change the cut and thrust of sellers arriving at his sales with buyers & local dealers immediately pouncing onto the unsuspecting seller almost stripping the car of items for sale at knock down bargains with the hapless seller ending up with almost an empty car as the crowd move on to the next arrival. (Bit like Rosudgeon really)

Over numerous phone calls Paul decided to come to Cornwall to study our system of FAIR PLAY and he was stunned at the control I exercised over our Car Boot Sales in particular with the way we operated buyers arriving and being allowed to set up their stall without hindrance of buyers and that there was no buying/no selling during this set up period and that the buyers would enter the sale at the stated time in short all buyers/dealers would get a fair chance of the thousands of bargains on offer. With my blessing Paul introduced and copied our system and he now proudly boasts the fairest Car Boot Sales in the Devon and Somerset area in fact even the dealers now approve of his system with fairness to all concerned.

In my picture Paul is with his devoted Mum who talked Paul into 'starting up his own Car Boot Sales' he now proudly present 4 sales during the Summer Season and thousands of flock to his weekly sales during the main season. He is a natural entrepreneur showman and prides himself on his ability to find the right location with understanding and very happy Landlords and thousands of contented buyers and sellers!

I dread to think if we were both in the same area in opposition against each other but I am sure it would all work out in the customers interests 'opposition is the spice of Car Boot life' so they tell me. Thank you for the compliment of copying Car Boots Cornwall lets hope the system will be copied in other parts of the country which will certainly be a credit to all concerned and fairer to the general public as they recycle their unwanted items. It is fair to add that HAYLE Rugby Club here in Cornwall now operate an identical system which I understand has been well accepted by all concerned!

Well done Paul, proud to know you and congrats to Mum who could see your potential in organising such popular events in TAUNTON!!
