Bristol's Citywide Car Boot and Yard Sale

What if we promoted a city wide, giant car boot / yard sale, held over an entire weekend once a year.

Everyone who wants to take part can either open up their front room, their car, or their front garden to the public, selling anything and everything they don't need anymore but that others around the city would dearly love.

It could be promoted in advance by people registering a point on a Google map and/or hanging a physical branded sign (which they could print out themselves) on their doors.

I feel this has the potential to become an Event similar to the annual art trails etc.


Why the contribution is important

  • It supports local businesses by increasing footfall.
  • It brings communities closer together.
  • It works hard to unite the city.
  • It's fun and will make people money.
  • It lets people discover lost treasures.
  • It promotes a culture of recycling.
  • It gives you an excuse to discover more of your city.
  • It promotes postivity by allowing people to clear their houses of unwanted clutter, and make money in the process.
  • It can all be done without leaving your home.
