Car Boot Sale novice - advice needed

I need to clear out a load of crap high quality used items and want to take to a local car boot.

I haven't been to one before either as visitor or seller and need to know what to do?

Do I need a table,
Do I put prices on everything?

I know I need lots of change, be prepared to haggle?

any other tips??

Find one where you want to go, you will need a table, mormally a decorating table is best.

Price everything, but price it up as you will get haggled down. Remember, you want to sell the stuff so don't put ta hefty a price on it or you'll be bringing it all home!

People will haggle. Be brave, stick your ground, tell them to come back at end if they are haggling to much, and if item is there you'll honour a decent price.

Go with someone, take carrier bags, a pot of change and lots of coffee and food, it gets boring!

And unpack table whilst someone else watches over, as stuff will get pinched if you turn ur back.
