    Sort of like an impounded car, all contents are sold, or an abandoned storage unit that is auctioned off to the highest paying bidder.. G

    Is not a carboot the trunk of a car in American English?

    A carboot is the U.K. term for a trunk.

    Aha ! Got it ! Car boot sales or boot fairs are a form of market in which private individuals come together to sell household and garden goods. They are popular in the United Kingdom, where they are often referred to simply as 'car boots'.

    As an English man who attends car boots I can shed light on this.

    A car boot sale is an organised event where sellers set out stalls or tables with their unwanted items on display. I think the name comes from people selling things from their car boots/trunks. They are normally held on a Sunday and the organisers charge the stall holders a fee + the people who attend. The larger ones have food stands (burger vans) and toilets etc.

    Here is a good example of a well establish 'car boot'.

    Also a car boot sale may be a small event with only a few stalls.

    As Will said, 'Carboots' are very popular over here, seem to have come about since the mid 90s, you rarely see a 'bric-a-brac' or junk shop in the UK these days ! It's funny the different terms we use across the world, I always think of Flea markets as mainland Europe & Yard sales & Thrift shops as American !
    Cheers
