London most definitely is a capital of secondhand booksellers or any other secondhand dealers for that matter. For the most part, it's because some people easily give up things they don't fancy anymore while others readily admit they could still make good use of them. Haggling over second hand goodies goes on in numerous locations around London, mostly unmarked on maps and search untraceable on Google.com. Even if you have stumbled upon information about some of these car boot sales as locals have dubbed them, finding a certain market and a parking-lot hybrid might still take time and efforts. Exploration of car boot sales or flea markets requires a particular attitude, too. Best of all perceive it as an exciting adventure that's definitely going to result in digging up something appealing and valuable. A belief shared both by general public and antiquarians and connoisseurs of the field is that flea markets are like a real chest of hidden treasures. Be open-minded and the right things will surely reach you!
Unusual as it might seem, boot sale at Battersea Park School courtyard starts already in the afternoon. It proves that one person's junk is another person's treasure! Battersea car boot sale once has served as a field for the research initiated by a TV program and its aim was to determine the actual price of items sold for pennies there. People pretty often do not recognize the actual value of things, yet a richly ruffled velvet evening gown from Battersea has now become a valuable addition to my wardrobe.
