This summer, the hugely anticipated Classic Car Boot Sale returns to King’s Cross with an incredibly stylish, engine-revving, vinyl-spinning bang. For just a fiver, this mini festival blows a traditional car boot sale out of the water with carefully selected traders, beautiful classic vehicles, street food, a bar in a vintage Routemaster and plenty of surprises throughout the weekend.
A treasure trove for all things vintage, upcycled and repurposed, the Classic Car Boot Sale will take over Granary Square, Lewis Cubitt Square and Coal Drops Yard on 17-18 July, celebrating the best in 20th century culture with the added bonus of sustainable shopping, brilliant DJs and the best dressed crowd in town.
The Classic Car Boot Sale will present over 100 bustling market stalls of fashion, homeware, art and accessories, making it London’s hottest spot for vintage picks this summer. Visitors can also shop an eclectic selection of prints, artwork, accessories, ceramics, vinyl records, collectibles, homewares and designer collections, from the likes of Vinyl Underground Herbie Mensah, Woowoo Boutique and Hang Up Vintage, all trading from a line-up of stunning classic cars, vans, scooters and motorbikes.
The showstopper of the event is undoubtedly the spectacular array of gleaming, vintage cars dotted throughout the market. This year’s Classic Car Boot Sale will be no exception, with appearances from the Afro Classics Register and Dream Cars. Blending the old and the new and bringing motoring to the 21st century with sustainable vehicles will be an eye-catching display by London Electric Car Company, showcasing their range of clean and green, repurposed classics.
Adding to the festival feel is a swinging soundtrack to the two-day event, courtesy of the Routemaster Bar Bus, where live DJs, 60s Tiki specialist Martin Green and WAG club DJ Chris Sullivan will play a vinyl-only selection of soul, funk, reggae and disco tunes from across the decades. The suited and booted shoppers can refuel at one of the many delicious street food vendors at the event from pizza to burritos, waffles to vegan burgers.
