Princess May draws an appropriately hip Stoke Newington and Dalston crowd at its lively sale for vintage and valuables. There's usually a great choice of costume jewellery.
Princess May Primary School,
Barrett's Grove, N16 8DF
There's a fantastic mix of antiques and artifacts to be had, with recent specialist finds including a Victorian decorative knife set and a stamp collection dating back to the 1920s, though if you're looking for something a bit more modern, DVDs can be picked up from 50p to £1.

8am-4pm Sat; 10am-2.30pm Sun
Because of its proximity to both London Metropolitan University and City and Islington College, some stalls offer students a discount of up to 20 per cent, but even without this the prices are still very reasonable – we picked up a pair of tan Chelsea boots for a meagre £8.
Holloway Road, (Opposite
Odeon Cinema), N7 6LJ
£3 before 10am, 50p thereafter
St Mary's boasts a great spread of vintage vinyls, magazines and textiles, and the sale is also a mecca for wannabe interior designers who’ll be spoilt for choice with the range of retro light fittings and quirky home furnishings on offer.
- St Mary's Church of England Primary School, Quex Road, NW6 4PG
£3 before 11am, 50p thereafter
More reminiscent of a flea market than a car boot, a recent rummage around this sale provided us with a vintage bird cage, a pristine violin and nearly new Cath Kidston crockery. There's definitely some quirky finds to be had if you're willing to root around for them.
St Augustine's School,
Kilburn Park Road, NW6 5SN
