Hemingway Design’s Classic Car Boot Sale at Kings X Granary Square

This was certainly not your typical ‘car boot sale’, in fact it was a lot more like a festival! The combination of a talented event team, great location and fine weather, made for a really fun weekend of busy trading with a party atmosphere. We send our thanks to all the great customers who visited our pop-up coffee bar (aka Velopresso) and tip our hats to the key players behind this event. Hemingway Design is a multi-disciplinary design consultancy that works across an unusually broad range of sectors including exceptional public place-making events like this. The Classic Car Boot Sale had a carefully curated combination of street food, music and all forms of vintage ephemera including vinyl, clothes, homewares and design collectibles … oh and some really stunning classic pre-80s cars! Granary Square was buzzing with vintage aficionados often in very sharp period outfits, mixing it up with regular visitors and passing tourists. The Square itself is one of the great new public spaces in London and well worth a visit, particularly in the summer where the fountains come into their own. Our Velopresso coffee trike was nestled alongside a lovely Citroen H-van with a wood-fired oven knocking out excellent pizzas and Lasse’s pedal-ground Perky Blenders coffees were the usual hit despite the ready availability of fine craft beer and other tasty delights. At the weekends close we fuelled up on fabulous handmade ice cream at Ruby Violet’s before riding the Velopresso the 7miles home. We’re already looking forward to next year!
