CAR BOOT SALES are officially back on- much to the delight of bargain hunters across the nation.
They are the perfect place to find a bargain or simply to flog your unwanted items to earn a bit of cash.
During lockdown, it’s likely that you have accumulated a wealth of items ordered from Amazon and eBay out of boredom.
However, now is the time to sell on those puzzles and banana bread recipe books and invest in new and exciting items as lockdown restrictions ease.
Here are five car boot sales that you can visit in Lancashire:
1. Mania’s Mega Market and Indoor Carboot, Higher Audley, Blackburn
Blackburn’s Mega Market is officially back open.
Sellers might not be operating out of the back of a car- but they will still be selling a variety of goods and you will be protected from the elements.
Pitches start from £10 for a basic pitch area and tables, shelving, clothing rails and chairs can be rented for additional costs.
They are open Sundays 8am until 2pm.
