With the warmer weather - and our habit of spring cleaning at this time of year - I think you can safely say it's Boot Fair Season again.
If you're inclined to get up early on a Sunday and spend it proving the adage that one man's junk is another man's treasure, here are the four main Boot Fairs in the Tunbridge Wells area. It's one way to Buy Local!
We paid a visit to our first on of the season the other Sunday, although I think as we didn't arrive until about 10, we'd easily missed the best buys. The early worm gets the Booty....
