Go on an early morning trip this primary school playground packed with stalls selling retro furniture, vintage clothing, magazines, secondhand fabrics and trinkets in need of a new home. The Princess May School Carboot welcomes walk-in sellers so you’ll often find chic locals who’ve recently emptied their wardrobes on hand to help you style yourself a brand (nearly) new outfit.

Extremely offended with the professionalism and security offered to us by the host of this car boot sale. On Saturday 4th of November, we were forced to pack up our goods early with very short notice due to a lack of customers. The woman in charge used aggressive and bullying tactics to hurry us which verged on assault and damage to our property.
My friend, the driver, had left to throw away our rubbish as there were no bins provided on site and had taken the car keys with her.
At 1:50pm, the lady threatened to close the gate and lock me in the car lot because I was the only person there. She demanded the keys off of me and because I didn't have them, she then told me to put down the handbrake and that she would push the car herself. Her intent was clear, this was not an empty threat.
If my friend had not arrived minutes later, I would have called the police as I feared for my safety.
Not to excuse her behaviour but all this happened before the official time for closing (2pm). We are highly disappointed as our first and previous sale event went very well resulting in a good profit.
Needless to say, we will not return and urge others to avoid these hosts as we did not feel like we were in a safe environment and felt very threatened.
