mobile phones?

“I’ll give you 50p! Any mobile phones?” The two statements guaranteed to strike fear into any hobbyist car boot seller in the UK. This small, but informative and I hope entertaining book, is intended to be a rough guide to the art of car booting – the dos and don’ts, the have-dones and the shouldn’t have-dones - as well as some examples and other stories thrown in. Be warned though - I do stray off topic occasionally and then ends up on my rather cynical and satirical soap box! Enjoy, but remember, at car boot sales, caveat emptor (‘let the buyer beware’) applies. Oh! Nearly forgot. Also remember, cave ne venditor (‘let the seller beware’) also applies, as if you have something of value that you aren’t aware of, it will be snapped up, and cheekily, nearly always at a discount off the price you want to get. Car boot sales, as a rule, are not the places to dispose of items of value.
