Fontwell and Chichester Car Boots

More car boot sales today. Fontwell Racecourse, one I’ve not been to before but will be returning to. Nice size, nice range of stalls.

Razor’s Edge by Somerset Maugham (1st ed)
Ah King by Somerset Maugham (1st ed) nice early Maugham book but not in the best of condition
Honeycraft by Lawson (1945)
200 Miniature Games of Chess by J Du Mont (1942)
The Dorset Bedtime Anthology published by the Arundel Press (1st ed)

Then it was on to Chichester for the afternoon boot sale. I’m surprised, given our reputation at football matches and on Friday nights in town centres, that there hasn’t yet been violent incidents at car boot sales. Chichester’s is in the town car park, cars, junk and people crammed in. Can hardly get down the aisles, people pushing and shoving without actually speaking to each other, thoroughly unpleasant. Every other shopper there seems to be Eastern European. Cyrillic languages are pretty much equally spoken with English by strapping young Eastern European lads, all seemingly over 6’5’’ and all wearing tight white t-shirts and clothes from the 70s and 80s. Bought nothing here.
