WHO WE ARE...
We are the Sunday afternoon boot sale. Established in 1999, Battersea Boot is the one youʼve heard about (we canʼt buy word of mouth!) the one youʼve read about, the one youʼve seen on TV. This is the boot sale people talk about when theyʼre at other boot sales!
WHAT WE DO...
Battersea is not an average boot sale. Weʼre renowned for being an incredibly busy, highly organised boot sale, often compared with Portobello market for range of goods and atmosphere. If you come to buy, you can expect to find quality items; designer goods, vintage, shabby chic, even antiques and collectables alongside general car boot goods. We have a wide and varied range of sellers, from all walks of life. Unlike other boot sales, we do not have the same sellers week in, week out. Of course, we have some regulars but the majority of our sellers are first timers or people who do a boot sale once or twice a year. Many of our more affluent pitch holders are attracted by the premium pitch service we offer, they tend to bring high end, designer goods to sell. We have cheaper pitches available so also get our fair share of lower priced goods.
Selling at Battersea is not for everyone, a pitch is not cheap, but you get what you pay for! Some people are happy to spend 5 hours waiting in a queue to get a pitch at another boot sale. Our sellers consider their time to be as good as money and would rather pay more for a pitch in order to save time, and make money! When a seller books a space with us, they get a space. No queues to get in, no waiting, no risk. They get a guarantee of a space with a time allocated arrival system at one of the busiest boot sales in London, where they know they will make money!
