Public Car Boot Sale at Yas

Abu Dhabi: Abu Dhabi will have its first public car boot sale when the popular Saturday Market at Yas Island returns in October.

Drive in your car to the parking lot, stack up the boot with all your once-loved possessions and peddle them in an open market. It is as simple as that!

Chelsea Van Der Spek of Tinybean events, which has been organising the Saturday Market since last year, said Car Boot Sale is a novel concept in Abu Dhabi, and she wanted to introduce it as part of a big community event.

"The weekly Saturday Market at Yas has been a huge hit with residents, and now we are coming back in a bigger and better way. From now on, this will be a monthly event and Car Boot Sale will be the added attraction," Said Van Der Spek.

She said Car Boot Sale is expected to receive an overwhelming response because it is the simplest and cheapest way to clear out ones closet. "All they have to do is pay Dh100 and book a parking lot," said Van Der Spek.

The next Saturday Market will be held from 1pm to 6pm on October 17, and will feature an eclectic mix of pop-shops and a pre-loved market in addition to the car boot sale. Visitors can also stroll along the dockside promenade, enjoy live music, try out some new watersports and dine al fresco at one of the Yas marina's seven restaurants and bars. There's also plenty to keep the little ones entertained with a pirate ship bouncy castle, shaded playground and musical water fountain.

The same concept will be repeated on November 15 and December 12.

Stalls to sell new or second-hand items can be rented from Tiny Bean Events. For bookings, contact Chelsea at
