Alton Chamber of Commerce to hold second annual "Boot" sale

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

The Alton Chamber of Commerce will be having the second annual "Boot" Sale/Car Show on Saturday, May 4 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on the square in Alton.

Are you wondering what a "boot" sale is? In Europe, the back or trunk of your car is called your "boot." So we are having a sale out of the trunk or back of your vehicle. You can sell your wares out of the trunk of your car. One table may be used as long as your trunk is used in some way. Everyone is encouraged to decorate their own "boot" because prizes will be awaraded for the best decorated. Clean out your "boot" - gather up your candles, bags, makeup, jewelry, anything you can think of - and join us for this one of a kind "boot" sale. The cost for a space is $10, or $15 if you need electricity.

We want to invite all car and motorcycle enthusiasts and car clubs to join us in this fun filled day. We will have awards for different classes and dash plaques for the first 50 registered. For more information on the car show, please contact Mike Osbourne at (417) 270-1750.

If you are interested in having a "boot," entering a car or motorcycle, or more information, contact Diana Clary at (417) 270-1536. This is an Alton GWFC Culture Club sponsored event.
