    You buying or selling??

    Buying, watch out for the fakes and remember to haggle.

    Selling, keep a close on eye on things, as they can go walkies sometimes, keep realistic prices..oh and have fun

    when you first arrive there maybe people trying to climb into your car, into your boot and have a look what you have.

    Be very careful of foreigners!!, sometimes you have to be firm and tell them to just f***k o** because they can gather in crowds and pinch stuff or try to short change you or confuse you.

    As someone who has had at least 40 carboots, just be aware all the time.

    Take loads of carrier bags, lots of spare change and try and take a second person with you, would not recommend selling on your own.

    Be friendly and easy to approach.
