Next Car Boot Sale – Sunday 3 February 2019



PLEASE NOTE:  THE NEXT CAR BOOT  IS SUNDAY 3 February 2019 –  at the Old School House, the gates opening at 7:30 am – 9:00 am for stall holders, 9:00 am onwards for the public.


The Portuguese Government crackdown on tax avoidance is clearly intended to target anyone who sells goods at a higher price than they paid to buy them in the first place, or who sells items they make to sell on for profit

Sadly, in order to comply with these new Government legislations covering markets etc, we can no longer allow professional traders to pitch their stalls and sell their wares on Amovate property.

That means we can only permit access to those people selling their own unwanted goods in the original spirit of the car boot sale; i.e. (as the article above stipulates) unwanted domestic items that might previously have been thrown away but are now being sold for less than the price originally paid for them.

Nor can we allow access to anyone selling foodstuffs or fruit and vegetables as these almost certainly require separate licences and are subject to health and safety issues.

We believe that this decision to go back to the original Car Boot concept satisfies the spirit of the new legislation.

So, if you are planning a stall at Amovate, please make sure you comply with these requirements, and those listed below:
