Bright sunshine and big crowds made the first Çalış car boot of the winter season a great success, with stallholders doing a brisk trade and shoppers picking up some great bargains.

Çalış based children’s charity, the 3C’s, who organise the monthly Sunday car boot sales did really well, raising 2,100TL to help fund projects for disadvantaged youngsters in the Çalış/Fethiye area.

Next Sale

The next car boot sale will be held on Sunday 20 October and it will be extra special one as it will be the 50th monthly car boot sale to be organised by the charity. Again it is expected to be very busy.

The sales take place in the car boot car park next to the Bahar Hotel, just behind Çalış promenade and run from 7.00 until 2.00 with set up from 6.00 am. A pitch costs 15TL (the same as last year despite table hire charges increasing) which is 2 tables width.

The 3C’s provide 2 tables free of charge to stallholders until they run out.

Recognized charities are given one pitch free of charge.

Organisers, the 3C’s will have their stall in the usual location under the flag poles by the toilet block and we will have lots of sale priced clothes as well as bric a brac and books.

Calendars on Sale Too

They will also be selling their new 2014 calendars. The 3C’s charity shop at the Eyna restaurant will also be open on car boot Sunday from 10.00 until 2.00 pm so if you cannot find what you want at the car boot, pop along and have a look at the good quality items in their shop.

Eyna owners Nalan and Erhan will also be having their popular bratwurst sausage bbq’s.

All money raised from sales 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) all go to fund projects to help local children.

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.
