As a designer and writer looking for something a little different,I often pay a visit to car boot sales around Dundee and will be publishing an occasional article about some of the more collectible items found on display at various venues around the region.

Get to know the sellers of collectable items

I feel quite at home visiting the various bootsales around the region and have got to know many of the fascinating vendors who buy and sell unusual objects, most are passionate about what they do and will gladly offer advice if needed.

My favourite feeling is that sense of serendipity when you find an item you weren't looking for, this happens daily at markets and car boot sales throughout the country and our very own local boot sales are no exception.

Finding a bargain at car boot sales around Tayside is not always easy, but armed with a little knowledge most people can find that elusive bargain tucked away somewhere, my articles are designed to give readers basic advice on identifying some of the more common collectible items on display around Dundeet.

During the coming months I will be covering topics as diverse as: Ceramics and China, Precious Metals, Glass and Crystal and a host of other collectible objects which are on sale at car boot sales throughout Dundee and Angus.
