Car boot sales have exploded in popularity in recent years, and are a great way to clear out the attic or spare room and make some money selling unwanted items, or find that vintage treasure at a bargain price.
For all you secondhand and collectables lovers out there, there are plenty of one-off book fairs, antique fairs and car boot sales taking place in and around Haverhill over the next couple of months.
