One of the first items sold on AuctionWeb (later known as eBay) was a broken laser pointer for US$14.83. But back when eBay was just a daytime reverie of Pierre Omidyar (eBay’s founder), people used to sell their stuff by the roadside from the back of their cars.

Now you too can sell your stuff (and maybe even your broken laser pointers) in a charmingly retro way at CAR BOOT NIGHT BAZAAR! Happening every first Thursday of the month, Car Boot Night Bazaar features souvenirs, clothes, food, second-hand books and more. If you would like to participate in the night bazaar, simply pay a rental space of RM10 for normal cars and RM20 for MPVs. Admission is free.

Sorry, ladies, but Vin Diesel will not be there.
