So what exactly is a car boot sale?

Popular in UK, car boot sales, also called as boot fairs, is part of a martket where private individuals come together to sell household and garden goods. These sales are a way of attracting a large group of people in one place to recycle useful but unwanted domestic items that otherwise might have been thrown away.

On this Prashanth said,

"Our aim was to get support from entrepreneurs and other companies, and we charged only `1,000 for each stall.  It was only a one-day sale."

Being the first and entirely new venture, an unexpected throng of Bengalureans congregated at at Sirur Park Ground in Malleswaram. The products ranged from handmade items to homemade foods at an affordable price.
