THE Margate car boot sale at Hibiscus Coast Mall was a success on Saturday despite the timing.

Founder of the sale Lorraine Bruigom said traders were nervous about having a sale in mid-January, however, it seemed patrons were always open to household essentials at bargain prices.

For Ramsgate residents Wilbert and Ann Hauptfleich it came as a pleasant surprise that people still bought vinyls in this day and age.

“We’re ‘old school’ so we still use the old technology [vinyl music player] however, we have been told they are now remaking music players that use vinyls so a lot of people are still interested in buying them,” said Ann.

“This car boot sale is all about making a difference in people’s lives all over the South Coast and next week we are turning it up a notch at our SPCA sale where all proceeds raised will be donated to the SPCA,” said Bruigom.
