The people I work for run a car Boot Sale every alternate Sunday.
The first few sales were very poorly supported but nowadays business is brisk and lots of people turn up. We were there today and it was noticeable that more of the buyers and sellers were Spanish.
I wasn't too keen on the idea of the sale when it first started - it struck me as trying to import something alien, another attempt to hang on to "home". I wondered today if the alternative view might not be that the Brits were adding something to their new home.
