The event celebrates its 21st anniversary and as usual will feature some 120 participants selling everything from books and DVDs to clothing, toys and furniture. The bargain-hunter fest takes place May 25 on the Glacis and also features refreshment stands--bacon sandwiches, cakes and biscuits will be among the treats on offer--and entertainment for kids.
The Car Boot Sale has become a hugely popular event in the international community’s social calendar. Yet the British Ladies Club event is a major fund-raiser, with profits going to the Office Social at the Ville de Luxembourg. “To date, more than €20,000 has been raised by participants”, the BLC has reported.
And there is still time to donate a baked goodie or two to the effort: “No culinary delight, sweet or savoury, is ever refused.”
The event takes place rain or shine this Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4p.m. at the Glacis Car Park.
