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 my memory serves me right a "car booth" is British for car trunk.
Therefore I venture to guess, it is about someone selling things out of car's trunk somewhere.

It’s like “tailgate party” or “truck patch.” Stuff we make up to separate furrin’ spies from native citizens.
