"Very cool. Pardon my ignorance, but what the heck is a car boot sale? Is that like a flea market or swap meet?"
Exactly like a swap meet or flea market. It mean's selling crap out of the trunk (boot) of your car.

If you’re going to decipher Brit. speak about cars remember the boot is our trunk, the bonnet is our hood, the wind screen is our wind shield, a spanner is our wrench, petrol is our gasoline, left is our right and the manuals incomprehensible.
