Chiswick Car Boot Sale
The Chiswick Car Boot Sale is one of the most popular haunts for local residents and takes place on the first Sunday of every month (except January) from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM. It is a perfect place to find a way to add some spark to a house or redesign a room. Anything from collectible 1970s paintings to hang on the wall, cloth rolls to sew up a tablecloth or a classic G Plan table can be had. The Chiswick School Parent Teacher Association, a registered charity, runs the sale. The entrance fees (£1 PP) collected from the sale go towards the school.
Hounslow West Car Boot Sale
The Hounslow West Car Boot Sale is the place to go when looking for day-to-day things—such as clothes, kitchen utensils, and furniture—rather than vintage items, though you might find a classic piece of furniture if you search hard enough. Also a must see: the greengrocers and butchers. The sale takes place every Sunday from 7:30 AM to 3:00 PM and entrance is free!
Wimbledon Car Boot Sale
If you are a retail therapy addict, and your knees go weak each time you hear the word “sale,” the Wimbledon Car Boot Sale is your destination. Why? Because it takes place from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays! There is a mad rush for the booty sold here, and early birds pay a premium entrance fee of £2 PP to get their hands on the more-valuable catch. All later attendees pay just £0.50 PP. There is no limit to what you can find here: vintage crockery, good quality clothes and, if luck has it, you may even strike gold—literally!
Queensmead School Car Boot Sale
The Queensmead School Boot Sale is run by Calvers Fairs, who have been running fairs in London since 1989. The Queensmead Sale is one of their most popular fairs, and it runs every Sunday in the summer (April – October) from 7:30 AM to 1:00 PM. It’s more of a fair than a sale, with a huge outdoor setup. Even if you don’t have any shopping on your agenda, grab a burger, do some window shopping and get the vibe of the place. Buyers entering at 7:30 AM pay £2 PP, and those entering after 8:00 AM pay £1 PP.
