After ten successful years the time has come where we have to make the difficult decision to stop hosting Car Boots at the campsite in Dragizhevo.
This has not been an easy decision for us to make and we have thought long and hard over the week since the last Car Boot. However, the decision is in the best interests of all parties concerned.
As far as we are aware we hosted the first Car Boot style market in Bulgaria, an introduced an interesting element of British culture to our little piece of beautiful Bulgaria. From those early, and typically British rainy days, the Car Boot market has grown to a size that is no longer possible to host within the campsite.
We sincerely thank everyone who has supported the Car Boot over the last ten years. The sellers, who often drove long distances in the early hours of the morning; the buyers who encouraged friends and family to come along to find a bargain; to our staff who cooked and served for enormous numbers of customers, and last but not least to our volunteers who manned the entrance gate, collected rubbish and generally helped the Car Boot operate smoothly for everyone.
Without your support the Car Boot would not have grown into the family friendly and fun event that it has become and it would not have inspired other such events to open across the country.
For the future we heartily recommend you to the Car Boot on the second Sunday of the month in Hotnitsa village, operated for several years by Chris and Karen.

Thank you once again and we wish you every success at Car Boots in the future.
Nick and Nicky Kinson.
