Next Çalış Car Boot Sale – Sunday 14th December

3Cs December Car Boot Sale

If you are intending to have a clear out before Christmas to make room for all those new Christmas goodies that it’s time to get sorting as the next Çalış car boot sale takes place this Sunday 14th December.

The monthly sales, organised by Çalış Children’s Charity (the 3C’s) which are held in the car park next to the Bahar Hotel on Çalış seafront, take place from 7am until 2pm with set up from 6am. Pitches cost 20tl which includes two free tables. There were 114 stalls at the last sale and the December sale is also expected to be busy.

All money raised on the 3C’s stall together with the net stall hire income (the pitch fee income collected from the stallholders less the hire charges paid to the table supplier) goes to fund projects to help local children with most of the funds raised from the car boot sales going to provide bursaries to enable students from poor families to attend university.

Of course if you have unwanted goods but do not want the bother of getting up early on a Sunday morning and having your own stall, the 3C’s would be more than grateful to take these off your hands and can collect if required. Please ring 0536 373 9520 both for collections and for more car boot information.

The 3C’s charity shop, situated beneath the Eyna restaurant on Çalış promenade (just around the corner from the car boot car park), is also open on Car Boot Sundays from 10am – 2pm.

So if you do not find what you are looking for at the Car Boot why not pop into the shop and have a browse?

And if the lure of a bargain is not enough, Erhan and Nalan, owners of Eyna, have promised to put on their famous bratwurst sausage BBQ.

Car boot dates for the remainder of the season are as follows:

  • 25th January
  • 22nd February
  • 22nd March
  • 19th April

Get ‘splashing’ on New Year’s Day and support local charities!

The Çalış New Year’s Day Splash should be an even bigger spectacle this year as organizers the 3C’s have now invited other local charities to take part to raise money for their own good causes.
