Default Car Boot Sale Consell - anyone going?!

Buenos dias! My partner Mike and I are in PP for a week and are really up for the car boot sale in Consell on Sunday; however we have looked into getting there without a car and it seems quite a mission! If any of you kind locals are heading there and have space in your car, we would love to tag along. We would of course pay fuel costs.
Muchas gracias! Fiona

We visited this 2nd hand market a year or so ago and must say how disappointed we were to find such expensive rubbish. We hoped to find unusual things but frankly found things suitable only for the tip. We may of course visited on a bad day but speaking to an English stall holder it seemed the norm. Be interested to hear others experiences.

Perhaps there is something similar closer to PP?

Ok that's interesting, thanks both. Have either of you ever spotted any records at any 2nd hand sales? That's what we're particularly looking for.

Sorry i have never been to one of these sales Fifi so can't help you but i am sure some of our members will be able to advise you .

If you look at the blue bar below the header of this page, about halfway along it says "Calendar", click and it will take you to it.

Cheers Sparky. Is the market tomorrow in PP or Pollensa town itself?

Sorry Fiona, I'm afraid I really can't answer if there were any old records for sale as can't remember. I just remember it being full of what I would class as expensive rubbish. But as said before each week will probably be different anyway.
You may be lucky at the Pollensa market tomorrow or have you thought of the charity shops locally? Good luck with your search.

Thank you Eleanor (must change username from fifi; makes me sound like a poodle). We found a couple of good bits in the charity shop yesterday and will definitely check out the market in Pollensa tomorrow. Thank you Sparky for clarifying (the calendar entry referred to PP).

Fiona i think you misread it, the PP market was listed on the calendar for last week the 7th July, tomorrow entry says Pollensa Town .

Oh yes silly me - I'm clearly on island time already and don't know what day it is! Majorca is working her blissful magic
Also, last time we were here I stumbled upon a fantastic contemporary art gallery full of interesting things (jewellery, paintings, sculptures) made by local artists, but I can't remember where - any ideas please?
