Turn your unwanted items into cash
Not only a fun day out for the whole family, car boot selling is a great opportunity to make money from all your unwanted items. The fantastic thing about the Harlow indoor car-boot sale is that you can sell pretty much anything you like. It’s the perfect way to grab everything you no longer use or want and turn it into CASH.
Lately, we all need to save money where we can, that means it’s a perfect time to get down to Harlow indoor car-boot sale to take advantage, and turn your unwanted items into CASH.
Start by raiding all your cupboards and drawers that haven’t seen the light of day for a while. Check the attic, the kids room even the shed to see what you can sell. Get everyone involved in finding items, and if you don’t have that much stuff to sell, consider sharing a stall with a friend or neighbour.
Its always a good idea to visit our car boot prior, to see how others sell their goods and what sells well, plus you will get an idea of the prices to charge.
Keep the pricing simple, have in mind or written down the price you want for each item or label each item before hand.
For the best chance of selling your goods make sure your items are clean and in good working order.
Pack the car and bring with you a clean colourful tablecloth and if possible a plastic sheet to spread on the ground (good for displaying items).
Remember to bring lots of change and a safe container for your money. Once you start taking notes put them safely in your pocket. DON’T leave your money tin on view to the world, someone could take it.

On The Day
When you arrive park your vehicle as close to the main building as possible, the doors will be open at 7am sharp, you will then be shown to your pitch which comes complete with table & chairs by one of our stewards. If you have pre-ordered any extra table or heavy duty clothes rail the steward’s will get theses for you. Trolleys and sack burrows are available on site, to help you unload.
Use a clean colourful cloth on your display table to attract buyer’s attention. Place your most eye-catching and attractive items at the front of the table, take the time to make items looks as appealing as possible and try to put items in some kind of order or theme. For example – kitchen items, clothes, house hold, out doors, toys and so on.
Items that are less likely to sell can be put in a box at a set price per item – again for example 50p per item. People do like a good rummage!
Put toys low down so kids can see them.
There will be buyers on site already looking for bargains, some may approach you in the car park, selling to them in the car park before 9am is against our policy and you may be refused entry! Don’t let them panic you, before you are set up and ready to go. think carefully before selling off your best items to soon. Remember people love to haggle. Be prepared to stick to your guns and don’t be afraid to say “NO” (politely) or even come back with a counter offer. Don’t sell off your best items for a knockdown price within the first 10 minutes of getting there; you can always reduce your price as the day goes on.
