Parkys Carboot sale is on today at Terrapica


Parky’s traditional monthly car boot sale is on this morning. Follow the signposts from Roquetes and Ravel de Crist. Though this car boot sale is not on the grand scale of those sprawled across English fields, yet this one is so friendly. New to the area, passing through, visiting or have been settled awhile I will guarantee you will make lasting new friendships here.

Along the way you will see regular stall holders tempting you with their wares. Do not be mislead to think folk are just trying to off load their junk. You will be surprised to find different things each time and usually with a seasonal variance.

So please come along and have a look. I showed two friends them the other day as I was unpacking them and they each bought one straight away as a “simply must have” item.

Now is the time to stock up on your reading material for those sunny siestas that are just around the corner. Have a good old rummage on all the stores and if we don´t know you please don´t be shy to come along and introduce yourselves.

Maybe you yourself need to do a “reckie” and then have a store yourself next month, the more the merrier.

If you aren´t able to make to today, please just drop us a line on for any information, queries or to share your experiences out here.

Watch this space! The car boot sale in April I am hoping a have a supply of a brand new book by two well known lady authoress´s that you can´t buy off the shelf over here.

Anyway the weather is glorious and we look forward to meeting you all.
