vendita di oggetti usati
Cultural note: CAR-BOOT SALE, GARAGE SALE In Gran Bretagna i car-boot sales sono dei particolari mercatini dell'usato in cui la mercanzia viene messa in vendita nel bagagliaio della propria auto. Di solito si tengono in ampi spazi all'aperto che spesso hanno piazzuole di sosta a pagamento. Negli Stati Uniti la vendita di oggetti usati o di cui ci si vuol disfare, detta garage sale o "yard sale", avviene davanti al garage di casa.
