LOL ~ I'm so happy you don't know
I'm wicked aren't I LOL but half of what you say I haven't got a clue what you're on about ~ gosh aren't we different considering we all speak the same language, it amazes me still and often!
For instance I don't have a clue about coupon trading we don't use or have coupons here for anything and we don't stockpile either (I'd NEVER heard of it!) Anyway you don't care do you, you're just dying to know LOL.
I.M.Cheap has it right ~ a car boot is the trunk of the car but it's just a name we give to the sales. Someone (making a fortune) will hire a field or car park, sometimes school playgrounds etc (any large space) and advertise it in the local paper, but we have regular ones that are always on every week and then you sort out your clutter and take it in your car and set up a table, rails etc and sell to the people that come. Next time I go I'll take a pic and post it for you ~ Everyone will think I've gone mad LOL
Oh and Bangers and Mash ~ Is Sausages (bangers) and Mashed Potatoe.
DH is laughing because it's so obvious to us ~ it must be like when I was begging to know what a thrift shop and dumpster diving was to you - It really is funny isn't it.
Have you noticed we have different sense of humour as well?
I am happy you asked though because I am the ONLY person here from the UK which makes me the 'wierd' odd one out LOL.
