Do you need to declutter after lockdown?

Have you become a hoarder during lockdown and gained stacks of clutter? Perhaps clothes, household items, children’s toys, or garden stuff. If yes, then it’s time to have a clear out and make some money on your unwanted items and let someone else enjoy and use them.

Aylesbury Market has been in existence since it was decreed a Charter Market by Mary Queen of Scots back in 1554 and over the centuries has seen many varied uses such as an agricultural market specialising in cattle. It has hosted continental markets, food markets, vegan and now is preparing to host a car bootie on its historic cobbles.

The car bootie will take place on Saturday 7 August from 9am-2pm with a maximum of 10 cars at £15 a pitch. Spaces are very limited, and it would be on a first come, first served basis via bookings only. The bootie is for private cars only – so no commercial vans or businesses.

If you’re interested in finding out more and booking a space, then please email:

Gareth Williams, Cabinet Member for Planning and Regeneration, commented:

“I’m excited to see the plans in place for Aylesbury Market’s first-ever car boot sale. Whether you want to sell some of your unwanted items, or you fancy picking up a bargain or two, be sure to come along to Market Square on Saturday 7 August.”

Paul the Market Manager said:

“It’s the first time that the town centre has run a car bootie and it will be joining the General Market on Saturday 7 August. It’s an ideal location in between the two shopping centres with good footfall of around 9,000 people passing through the course of the day.”

Aylesbury Town Centre Management team is always looking to create new and innovative ways of encouraging people to visit the town and enjoy the extensive range of facilities on offer.
