Hi Pearly, hey, thats the first time I hear "car boot sale", ha ha.
Here in Canada its called ,"garage sale". Once a year people get rid of their old stuff and put out in their front garden, put up the prices. Its only allowed twice a year here. We bought one antique chair for $5.00 some years back, I love it. I repainted it, looks like new. My friend offered me $100. No sale.
Recently a man bought an old oil painting for Cdn$ 10. Later when he was about to hang it up, he noticed the backside of painting has another piece of old plywood cover. He very slowly opened it and discovered an old master, a painting painted by a very well known artist 150 years ago.
He took it to an auction, it was bought by a collector for Cdn $250,000!!! Holy Smoke! Some people can be really lucky!
Did you buy the painting of mother and child?
Hey, thats a lovely photo of you with the orchids, Pearly. You always look good in photographs.
You keep well, Pearly, UL.

Reminds me of the "thieves market " in Ipoh. Where they sells anything under the sky.

That is a nice picture you got there.

Pearly,
We also called it Garage Sale or Yard Sale. We can put stuff in our front yard or driveway and start selling. Usually held on Saturday between 7:00 to Noon.
Alot of american here like to go to yard sale. I wish I have more time to do some cheap shopping.

Great painting. Good find Pearly.

Hi Pearly,

When I was in London I found out this car boot sale thingy is quite a popular phenomenon on weekends. I think it is such a good idea. One thing it can work overseas as the weather is permitting, cool and crisp. Over here in Malaysia hmm..hot and humid, susah sikit. But flea market is a popular occurence now. I love shopping for trinkets at the flea markkets. Cheers.

Hi !
Thieves Market used to be the day market along the general market. But now it is not there anymore. It has moved to the a street somewhere(a few streets) behind the lido cinema.

My Mother said they use to sell stolen things. But now a days it is not true anymore. Lots of old things around, spare parts. But I don't see any art work though. Plus it is so Bloody HOT ! Even it is held in the morning. Nothing like the weather in UK.

Btw I have a tag for you. Have fun.
