In addition to Pimlico’s established Markets a new asset for the community was started exactly a year ago last Sunday, and has grown to be a London phenomenon.
Every Sunday Capital Carboot holds it’s Carboot sale at Pimlico Academy, near Pimlico tube station in central London.
This is a sophisticated cosmopolitan Carboot attracting a younger crowd, many of whom deal in vintage fashion and collectables – brands like Isabel Marant, Mulbery, Luella handbags, plenty of records, books, clothes, shoes, jewellery and homeware, and features more than a hundred sellers on a good day.
The market has both indoor pitches and outdoor, recycling facilities onsite, and there are also toilets for visitors.
Indoor stall holders should arrive at 9:30am if coming in a vehicle to unload. Unloading vehicles will not be allowed on site after 10:00am, outdoor stall holders without vehicles should arrive 10:00am, outdoor stall holders with vehicles to remain in the sale should arrive 11:00am.
Early bird buyers entry is 10:00am (£5), and is recommended if you want to buy the bargains.
Public entry is 12:00pm until 3:30pm (£1).
There is occasionally free entry at 12:30 for those who know the password, and I will post the password in our London Forum.
