They're known as flea markets or swap meets here. I've never found anything good at those things.

Ours is in a field like you described.  People haul stuff to an empty field set up tables, put their junk on there, sit and watch people walk.

To me they're quite boring, but not a bad way to make a few bucks.  Everyone has useless stuff they don't want.

Eh, B O is a bit too young and McCain is a bit to old, so I really don't care who to be honest :P

I don't know what a boot fair is (something to do with footwear?), but a couple years ago I was lucky to buy Super Metroid for the Super Nintendo.

I see tons of old games at car boot fairs. Half my Mega Drive collection was gotten from them, as is a large proprotion of my Game boy one
