Vintage car boot sale seeks support

MAIDA VALE’S annual vintage car boot sale is seeking a local community group to help on the gate – the volunteering group will receive the profits from the gold coin donation entry fee. 

The All Things Vintage Car Boot Sale at Maida Vale Reserve  on November 4 is a plastic free event promoting sustainability and recycling.

The annual event has grown in popularity since its beginning in 2015 and now hosts more than 70 stalls selling vintage wares. 

Organiser and vintage collector Adele Standeven started the event to get vintage sellers offline and operating from an outdoor venue. 

“I studied sustainability and I knew it was important to bring the vintage community together for so many reasons,” she said. 

“This event is on the grass and is a nice day out for vintage lovers and locals alike.”

Ms Standeven grew up in the UK watching her father restore and collect old cars and spent many years visiting the famous London Covent Garden flower markets.

“Markets are in my blood,” she said.

“In 2015 I had a young family and I was selling vintage online but I missed the social connection and wanted to run a vintage event outside.

“Building community is one of my other passions.”

There will be a reusable mug station next to the coffee vans and vendors are asked to bring their own recycled newspaper or wrap.

“Recycling, and more importantly reusing, is to keep things in use and out of landfill,” Ms Standeven said.

“We are very frugal and thrifty in our house, before I put something in the bin or recycling I think about how I can reuse it,’’ she said.

Popular to buy and sell vintage items include clothing, retro kitchenware, old toys, records and tools.

Not-for-profit community groups who want to volunteer or those  seeking stallholder information need to call 0414 513 390  or email hillshareworkshop@gmail.com before October 19.
