The girls want to do a boot sale to get rid of what is essentially a load of junk and clothes / shoes that no longer fit. I'm going to sort through a load of L's stuff as I have pj sets, tee shirts, shoes, shorts etc.
How much do you price things at? 50p an item? £1 for larger / more expensive items?
It's £12 for a car so I want to at least get my money back

I'd go for that kind of price, I wouldn't give it away, but you want to be reasonable priced

When i've done them before i've stuck to £1 or 50p for items. I usually make between £60-£70 depending on what i'm selling.

Cool so I'm along the right lines.
I don't have tons to sell, probably just a clothes rack and table top.
How much would you price Ralph plimsolls? Ralph Shirts?
I guess it depends where the boot sale is too. We did a few before we moved and at the first one, we sold lots and made a decent amount of money. We then did another one in a nearby town where the people browsing offered us between 5p and 10p for everything
Strangest thing we sold- perfume, used perfume, all of it went. They couldn't get enough of it. I had a bottle of LuLu Blue (remember that?!) from the 90s and it sold for 50p

I dont think that I would sell them at a car boot sale Belle, I would try sell them seperately
23/04/2013 at 10:58
Belle, unless you are willing to accept peanuts for them, then i'd leave them. People won't pay much for stuff.
23/04/2013 at 11:03
Really? Then there is no point in us doing one then. It's all Gap Ralph or Next.

I did a car boot sale once and I was shocked how people really did expect to buy things for 5p
If you have nice stuff, try something else first
23/04/2013 at 11:08
Agree with the others, Better off putting that sort of thing on eBay.
23/04/2013 at 11:09
Ah no can't be faffed with postage on ebay. Hmmm will rethink
23/04/2013 at 11:20
YOu not got a local selling group?
23/04/2013 at 11:21
wouldn't even know where to start Fi.

I have just searched for dartford for sale and there are loads of them coming up
23/04/2013 at 11:25
on what google?
23/04/2013 at 11:29
Childrens Nearly New would have all that off you for more than you get at a bootsale - you should email them, I cannot remember what they give you and I have deleted the email but it wasn't bad and certainly better than BS prices
23/04/2013 at 11:37
No on Facebook Belle
23/04/2013 at 13:10
Belle - what you got? If you wanted to give me all the stuff next time I see you I will happliy sell it for you on FB if its decent stuff? You get more for design stuff on FB, you'd get 50ps for Ralph stuff otherwise!
23/04/2013 at 13:41
I need to have a proper sort out of what he's got but top of head 3-4 shirts and the shoes. Then some lacoste and gap and next tees.
23/04/2013 at 13:46
