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.
