The first Çalış car boot of the 2013/14 winter season takes place on Sunday 22 September and there is good news for stallholders as organisers the 3C’s are maintaining the price of a pitch as 15TL, despite increases they are facing for table hire.
The monthly Sunday car boot sales organised by the Çalış based children’s charity which were the first ones to be held in S.W. Turkey, are now in their 6th year and are famous throughout the area and have proved so popular with residents and tourists alike that many towns have now started their own. The Çalış sales which are held in the car park next to the Bahar Hotel on Çalış seafront, take place from 7.00 am until 2.00 pm with set up from 6.00 am. The pitch price includes two tables.
Not only are the sales a hunting ground for bargains and a great social event but they are also a great way of fundraising with many local charities taking stalls to raise money for their good causes. The organisers, 3C’s, raises money to fund projects for local children from the sales of donated items on their committee stall and also from the stall entrance fees (net of the cost of table hire).
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.
Charity Shop Too
Finally the 3C’s charity shop situated at the Eyna restaurant on Çalış promenade (just around the corner from the car boot car park) will be open on Car Boot Sundays from 10.00 am – 2.00 pm 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. Eyna owners Nalan and Erhan will also be having their popular bratwurst sausage bbq’s.
