We all love to bag ourselves a bargain and where better to do so than at one of the plentiful car boot sales across the Suffolk Coast?
They say the ‘early bird catches the worm’ and if you want to get the best of the pick then you’ll need to be up with the larks!
Car boot sales make a really fun morning out with the family, whether you’re just browsing, looking for something specific or perhaps hoping to stumble upon a gem of a find that turns out to be a bit of an antique… But be warned, kids will have a wonderful time spending their pennies so make sure there’s some room in the car for all the treasures they collect!
Perhaps you need to have a well overdue home de-clutter yourself and are looking to take your own pitch. The summer is a great time to set up shop as the car boots not only attract locals but day visitors and holiday makers too.
There’s an abundance of car boots along the coast of Suffolk, both large and small. Some are regular events, whilst others are smaller, ad hoc affairs that you’ll need to keep an eye out for.
We've put together a listing of a few notable ones – Happy bargain hunting!
