Virtual Car Boot Sale 2020

Saturday 16th May

The Virtual Car Boot Sale will be coming live to you on Saturday 16th May, bringing you the best bits of the Car Boot Sale directly to you in the comfort of your own home!

Born from the creativity and passion of the much-loved annual Car Boot Sale, which was unable to take place this year in May as planned, this new online initiative is an opportunity to stay connected and raise funds for Women for Women International's work with women survivors of war.

Fashion icon Alex Eagle and friends are spring cleaning their wardrobes in aid of Women for Women International. This is your chance to buy beautifully curated pre-loved items from the UK’s most fashionable women and make them your own!

Skip the queues, avoid the elbow-barging and don’t worry about missing out on the best items! Fashion lovers will enjoy a full day of amazing deals on designer items straight from the wardrobes of the fashion elite. As a guilt-free alternative to fast fashion this is the circular economy and sustainability at its best.

100% of the proceeds from the Virtual Car Boot Sale will go towards our work supporting women survivors of war.
