I like Casio watches, but I'd also recommend the Timex Expedition watches on the basis my young son has had one for about four years and it's survived all he could throw at it, which has been quite a lot -- gone through washing machine, dropped and stood on numerous times and generally abused.
I have sold a couple of pairs of boots on OM, but at very low prices. I was happy they were getting a second life, but the little cash raised was only about enough for a decent pair of socks. I'd guess people are reluctant to risk more than a few £s when buying boots 2nd hand.
I think there's an arrangement whereby the money from parking goes to the farmer, so I'm pretty sure he (or she) would be quite amenable to an overnight stay as long as you coughed up the required cash.
