History of Car Boots
It has been said that Father Harry Clarke a Catholic priest from Stockport, introduced the car boot sale to the UK as a charity fundraiser after seeing a similar event or trunk fair in Canada while on holiday there in the early 1970s†.
However, no original source for this has been verified and the story continues to perpetuate. There are now large numbers of regular car boot sales across the UK.
