I used to love looking round the boot sales, never seems to be any vintage anymore though, spose that's cause people have become wise now

Agree, other issue at our car boot, is there is about 20 dealers of toys are like vultures as soon as the boot is open they are in there.

Went to a big boot sale today no vintage sw apart from one fixed limb c3p0 with a hand off, only a pound so maybe should have bought it but I must keep saying to my self I'm not a hoarder I'm not a hoarder. Got some nice 70's matchbox cars, warlord annuals, bmx wheel and tool chest cheap so happy days :D I'm not a hoarder :? and saw one of the women off uk storage wars tv program and at first thought it was someone I knew from my local so smiled a hello but then realised she was off the telly :lol: :oops:

Good pick up on the luke farmboy. I picked up a boxed atst rotj at a carboot on sunday, £25. It was on a table with a load of modern stuff, its still worth looking I think. Sometimes you can find stuff. I put a pic in the latest acquisitions thread. Cheers

I went to two the other week and had clearly forgotten how crap carboot sales are. There was nothing, not even anything remotely reminiscent of the 70s or 80s.

I walked round scanning each stall at lightening speed. Vintage just jumps out at you. Sod all

I think people are basically hoarders up north. Those old star wars toys weren't free you know! Still being passed down the generations :wink:

Gotta agree with this, finding any vintage SW at boot sales up north these days is a nightmare. The best I've seen in the past few years is a couple of Falcon shells. :(

Can we have photos of everyones purchases from Car Boots - even if non Star Wars. I love looking at all the old toy purchases and retro items that people pick up. Make this thread a must read on a Monday.
