Car Boots

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.

Details for the Hotnitsa Car Boot can be found at the following Facebook page :


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

Best regards,

Nick and Nicky Kinson.

  1. Well done Nick and Nicky Kinson, you were the first to be brave enough to start the ‘car boot’ sales in this area and your sheer hard work has made it the success that it is today. I am sure that you are making the right decision as indeed you have always done regarding the creation of Camping Veliko Tarnovo, Dragizhevo Village and I wish you continued success in all your future ventures. Thankyou for all the car boot sales, bacon sarnies, fresh baked muffins and great times, hopefully we might even get to see you at one of the other Sunday events! XX

  2. We’re sad for us. Totally understand it from your point of view. We’ll just have to make the effort to come and see you on other occasions.
    Wishing you all the success you deserve in the future.
