great institutions of working class britain

in reference to the above title it is safe to say that there are many but for me and my wife none more so than the CAR BOOT SALE , we love these kinda things, battered cars and sometimes battered people ... it seems that you can go and invest in items never seemingly any older than being manufactured in and before 1987 ... its a plethora of sights, sounds, and smells ... if any of you lived in a town like i did when growing up where the gypsies came along with their travelling fair but once a year and the odour of candyfloss and hot dogs wafted across the locale inducing both excitement and nausea at the same time ... anyway aside from my attempted poetics , a car boot sale in its glory is much like a travelling fair (just lacking in rides that make you puke) anyway i went to one outside of portsmouth and to my joy, it was a HOT day and the sights, sounds and smells didnt disappoint ...
