Are You Hoarding a Fortune?

6 September 2005
UK Families Keep Their Cash in the Attic A recent survey by the second hand goods store Cash Generator claims that UK families are hoarding a staggering £5 billion worth of unwanted forgotten goods, stashed in attics and cupboards. The average household could be almost £250 better off simply by looting the loft and selling unwanted items at a car boot sale – that’s enough for a weekend in Paris! If you are new to the world of car boot sales, you can have no better introduction than at an upcoming event at Loseley Park Country House on Sunday 9th October from 10 – 3.30, and if you’re already a devotee, you’ll be delighted to find out all the attractions this special car boot sale has to offer. Organised to raise money for the national charity Action Medical Research, this car boot sale is supported by Strutt & Parker and Sotheby’s, who will be on hand throughout the day to offer valuations for just £1, so you can check on the value of those unwanted items and maybe make enough to extend your weekend away to a round the world cruise! The whole event offers fun for all the family, with llama rides on offer and Cottage Caterers serving meals and snacks all day in a dining marquee. You won’t want to miss your chance to get a pitch at this prestigious event, so make sure you apply now and secure your place at the country house car boot event of the year – pitches must be pre-booked. Standard pitch is £50, which includes one trestle table. A large pitch for one car and trailer/van/horsebox and a table is £75. An additional trestle table can be requested for a further £15. Please make cheques payable to Action Medical Research. Applications should be made to Mrs Su Walkinshaw, Little Polsted, Polsted Lane, Compton, Guildford, GU3 1JE or telephone the Chairman Mrs. Diana Purchas 01483 893408.
