After a break for the winter the Car Boot Sales restart in the Hall in Knockananna on Sunday 25th of March and will continue on the last Sunday of each month. The Hall will be open from 9am so that sellers can setup and usually the buyers start arriving around 10.30. If you need a table then you need to be there early as tables are limited. A pitch costs €10. Last year, sellers were making between €50 and €100 selling their unwanted bits which was not bad considering it was only a few hours and they would be dumping the bits otherwise. Buyers also got bargains, toys, second hand clothes which had never been worn, books, bric o'brac and even small pieces of furniture. Hope to see you there.
