    As far as I know this market/car boot sale has been replaced by the Jamestown Market - across the road from the old venue - more details here: http://www.jamestownmarket.com/

    I was recently told there are auctions taking place this Saturday somewhere around the O2 or near the Financial Services area. It takes place every two weeks. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find anything on the internet as yet. Its supposed to be for miscellaneous stuff/house contents etc. Anyone know anything about it or have I been told wrong? Would appreciate any information.

    Thanks Judgement Day - that must be the one. Much appreciated. I've never been to an auction before so a new experience for me. I'm just going to check it out first and see how things run.

    OTC

    I was there on Sunday at 9am - place was empty.

    The sign at the point village said 12 - 4pm

    I was there at 12pm - place was empty.

    Website is out of date.

    There is a chronic need for a central reliable page for info on
    car boot sales, and their cancellations.

    I propose that the constitution be ammended and that this boards.ie forum
    be designated as the official notice board for all things car-boot related :)


    What does OTC mean?

    I would have thought that we are already doing a good job on this thread;by their very nature car boot sales come and go, change times, sellers fees etc. and setting up yet another Forum for it is not going to make any difference. I also publish as near a complete, and regularly updated list here: http://collectireland.wordpress.com/car-boot-sales/ At the end of the day somebody has to do the spadework (me at the moment) as most car boot organisers have to be chased for updates - they don't volunteer the information. :)

    Incidentally, the time change was posted in this thread on the 4th June so if you had looked here you would have saved yourself a journey.

    I'd say it is the user's way of signing his/her post (agree it is a bit confusing, though! :D)

    Thanks,

    Thanks for the update, my own fault for going out there without checking.

    Did the sale go ahead on the day?

    That wordpress page is great. Between it and this forum, you've got it covered.

    All known, verified ones! Between this thread and my blog you won't find more accurate information - forget about the other useless and wildly out of date sites that you may come across online. :)
