Stonham Barns Car Boot Sale 27th September 2020 
Stonham Barns, Pettaugh Road, Stonham Aspal IP14 6AT 

Stonham Barns Traditional Sunday Car Boot 
Family run Sunday Car Boot.  
 
Stonham Barns Sunday Car Boot 27th September 6am onwards 
Business as usual. 
 
192 Sellers last Sunday at Stonham Barns Sunday Car Boot and this Sunday 27th September we also have The American Car Show running at the same time. We are expecting a lot of sellers and a massive crowd so make sure you sell at this one. Despite this we guarantee one-way aisles and distancing throughout. 
 
Once again you do not need to book to sell at Stonham Barns Sunday Car Boot you just turn up. You don't have to arrive at 6am as many don't turn up until 8.30am that's just the time we open. I really would prefer it if everyone turned up from 7am onwards as the Car Boot doesn’t liven up until after 9. We do have covered stalls that can be booked but there are only 20 of those and they go quickly. Text to pre-book those. 
 
Again, a big thanks to the majority who are following the distancing and one-way routes and abiding by our strict no harassment policy which is why Stonham Barns Car Boot is always such a friendly place to sell and buy at. Back again this Sunday 27th September & every Sunday until further notice. Each week I’m enlarging the sales areas as we are using three different fields at the moment so I apologise for the extra walk for buyers but, the Car Boot is literally right next to where you park once everyone is in. You can park near the Owl Sanctuary or in the Coach Park (disabled) if you mention this to one of the attendants. One last thing for buyers to note - If I have marked an area for sellers it doesn’t mean you ignore it and park in the seller’s areas… 
 
There are only a few Sunday Car Boots on at the moment so, make sure you are organised and bring everything that you need to feel comfortable at the Car Boot. We do have food and drinks (hot and cold) and the toilets are open with a strict one in one out system. These are cleaned constantly throughout the opening times. You can literally just turn up on the day and sell. If you can’t get to the food van/toilet I am coming round to take pitch fees so ask me or ask your neighbour to look after your pitch. With the size of the car boot growing it does mean a longer walk to the toilet though. 
 
Thanks to everyone last week who followed all that I asked. For your safety I suggest that sellers bring gloves, sanitiser & possibly masks if they choose to. These are for your own peace of mind and obviously because you are handling cash. You still need to decide whether you allow buyers to pick up items or not and please clean items if you allow them to. These are suggestions only – you need to decide how you can sell and feel comfortable and safe. 
 
Each week, I’m amending a few things so it’s easier to get in. 
 
Sellers will be allowed to enter the field from 6.am onwards. NO ONE WILL BE LET IN UNTIL 6 SO DON’T ARRIVE BEFORE THEN AS YOU CAUSE TRAFFIC JAMS. Buyers will not be allowed in until gone 6.30am but – please allow me to get everyone into position so you don’t hinder this, thanks and please don't stand behind cars whilst they unload. No one is going to jump in and buy before you as it just isn't that kind of Car Boot. 
 
There will be a one-way viewing system which needs to be followed. I will place Way in and No Entry signs down each aisle. BUYERS – PLEASE FOLLOW THESE as they are very important for everyone’s enjoyment & safety. 
 
We will have sanitising solution available to purchase if necessary but, ideally all will bring some. Go to the food van if you need any sanitiser. 
 
Again, I ask the buyers to be patient and to make sure they are aware of the opening times and to follow the one-way system. If you see anyone going the wrong way – please politely point this out to anyone oblivious to the numerous signs. 
 
I will be out attempting to guide everyone into position and again I ask for patience as I will decide where everyone goes as the positioning of everyone will be vital and everyone needs to be positioned as I suggest. 
 
The previous weeks have been a great success and I can only thank everyone that acted intelligently and sensibly. 
 
At the end of the day though, we are an extremely friendly car boot with a lot of regular sellers. You’ll find that you can speak to and ask anyone selling at the car boot and they’ll point you in the direction of myself or the various people working at the car boot. I will be wearing a high viz jacket this Sunday so the person covered with small beetles will be me. Please feel free to ask anything. Otherwise ask at the food van. 
 
Stonham Car Boot has always had a great atmosphere where the public (sellers and buyers) have made the whole occasion really enjoyable. We don't have or allow anyone to harass sellers and it has never been an issue. Which is why everything works so well. But, because of restrictions we will have to follow set guidelines for sellers and buyers and everyone needs to read these and follow carefully. 
 
We will have Covered stalls in position but, these will need to be pre-booked in advance - Text 07817539168 with your number plate and vehicle size to reserve one and specify which Sunday you would like to attend. If you cannot make a date please text beforehand to let me know. Any Sunday can be reserved in advance. These are covered stalls (outside) with an overhead canopy and table to place items on. These are £10 for any vehicle size. If the forecast is heavy winds the overhead canopies may not be placed on the stalls for fear of the stall being blown into your cars bodywork. 
 
Anyone wishing to attend on the day will be charged £5 cars, £7.50 small vans, £10 Large Vans, car with trailer £7.50. Covered stalls are £10. Buying is free. 
 
Food & drinks will be available as usual at the Car Boot. There will be only 2/3 people in the food van and they will also have gloves & masks. All Food and drinks will follow Covid 19 government guidelines. 
 
We are outdoors only but offer covered stalls. We try to open every week irrespective of the weather as we still get buyers and sellers. 
 
Below is some information about Stonham Barns Sunday Car Boot 
 
Make sure you turn up & sell from Five Pounds. We also have the additional bonus of regular events that run at the same time as the Car Boot so check the link so you can sell to the extra crowds. There are many more events this year at Stonham now which means that we will have many more sellers and of course many more buyers. 
 
If you haven't been to Stonham Barns Sunday Car Boot come on Sunday 9th August and you'll love the friendliness of Stonham. Below is a little bit more about Stonham and the Car Boot, make sure you visit our Web Page and Facebook pages as it tells you a lot more about Stonham and what is going on weekly as it rarely is the same each week. We are open from April till November every year.  
 
Stonham Barns Car Boot is still the one to go to if you want a completely stress free day without the buyers climbing into the back of your car. We have had 182 sellers on some weeks and we are lucky to have buyers that actually buy. Stonham is known for its one off sellers and Antiques (as well as all the normal Car Boot items) and in our Seventh year we are getting a good regular crowd of sellers and buyers. Everyone loves Stonham as its unbeatable when the weather is good. It has a great atmosphere, a knowledgeable friendly crowd made up of all ages. Families, young and old, It's dog friendly and caters for the disabled. You can still sell from Five Pounds right up to Ten Pounds for Covered stalls. These are really a hit with the sellers as you can book by texting 07817539168, pull up behind, set up and sell and pack up and leave at the end of the day. Alternatively, we are still the cheapest in Suffolk so you can just turn up from 8am and sell. 
 
Once we are on the field we allow sellers as much space as they require and you can even bring a gazebo and set up. We only have a few rules - we don't allow buyers to harass. Please let sellers get there items out. Buyers will see you waiting. Everyone is welcome to sell at the Car Boot. You are welcome to sell home grown plants but, only if sold with a mixture of normal Car Boot items as well. Old gardening tools etc is fine. Contact me if unsure. No food sold without contacting me prior to the event as we are inspected and you will need to be aware of food hygiene levels. No hot food is allowed to be sold and you will need to notify me beforehand with regard to any food. No drinks, hot or cold allowed to be sold either. 
 
Something I will add, which I think is important, is the fact that you can sell without the fear of things being stolen or being pestered whilst setting up. I hear that this is a problem at so many Car Boots but, we have a friendly Traditional Car Boot which attracts all ages and a great atmosphere. If you ever have a problem call me immediately on 07817539168 and I will resolve. 
 
Everyone loves the friendly atmosphere, the non-aggressive buyers and a good old-fashioned traditional Car Boot. So, 8am start as usual on Sunday. Just turn up and sell from £5. The Events days are Ideal days to sell at the Car Boot with extra crowds on those days. I will also try and add all the various Car Meets and activities that will bring extra crowds on the Sundays. When the events are on the visitors park next to the Car Boot.. 
 
Stonham itself sees many new shops and a new restaurant with it's new Kids Play Area as well as the popular Owl Sanctuary, Golf/FootGolf and a growing number of craft shops, antique shops, a garden centre & lots more so, the whole experience on a Sunday is also improving. We are also increasing the Hard Ground. 
 
Sellers tend to arrive from 7am onwards (we do allow earlier (6am the earliest) but, Stonham wakes up after 9am with the shops and attractions also opening at 10am). Sensible people get there for 8am.. We start slowly but, once all the shops and attractions are open you get a good steady crowd. Make sure you pop by whatever you are doing as we do get some great bargains. Everyone loves the atmosphere of the Car Boot and it's a good crowd that actually pay the asking prices. 
 
Stonham is very different to other venues as we have so much going on as we are not just a Car Boot. There are lots of Shops, Golf, Fishing, Camping, a Garden Centre, Owl Sanctuary, Holiday Park, Men & Ladies Fashion, Serpent House/Pet Shop and lots more. We also have two showgrounds with regular events, permanent loos and free parking for all. 
 
If the weather's good Stonham is a great place to sell & you won't find a friendlier Car Boot and such a friendly buying crowd plus there are always great bargains as we are renowned for our one off novice sellers. We are also on the Coastal Route & in Summer have the Campsite and Holiday Homes full up and filled with Car Boot lovers and so many visitors to the Attractions and shops. If the sun comes out Stonham Barns Sunday Car Boot is so popular. 
 
We are outdoors only but offer covered stalls. We try to open every week irrespective of the weather as we still get buyers and sellers. 
 
The prices are £5 Cars, Small Vans £7.50 so are Cars with Trailers, Large Vans are £10, Covered stalls are also £10. Buying is free as is parking.
