Stonham Barns Traditional Sunday Car Boot
Family run Traditional Sunday Car Boot.
Stonham Barns Traditional Sunday Car Boot on Sunday 25th March 2018 from 8am #carboot
DON'T FORGET THE CLOCKS CHANGE
We opened last Sunday but, not the best weather. If you don't see us in the normal field we will be on the Hard Ground by the Owl Sanctuary. So mud free. Go in the main gate and straight on.
Make sure you turn up & sell from Five Pounds.
Covered stalls are Ten Pounds
(Let me know ASAP if you want one by texting 07817539168 t
o reserve NOW - you can book any Sunday
at any point). 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
at Stonham now which means that we will have many more sellers
and many many more buyers.
These start in April
and there will be lots more this year. First of the year is the Spring Break
on April 8th. If you haven't been to Stonham Barns Sunday Car Boot
come on Sunday 25th March
and every Sunday
after as we are growing every year. Better still you can still sell from £5
(no need to book). Just turn up from 8am. Below is a little bit more about Stonham
and the Car Boot, make sure you visit our Web Page
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 March 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 had 150 sellers on some weeks last year 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 Sixth 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 but we have a slight restriction whereby we don't allow Vans just full of flowers. We allow small vans/cars selling plants grown from home but, they will need to be part of a variety of things sold. Anyone selling old gardening tools etc is fine. Call me if unsure. It's just common sense you just need to bring a variety rather than a van full of just flowers. 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.
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 Event 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 soon to be appearing Kids Play Area as well as the popular Owl Sanctuary, Golf/FootGolf and a growing number of craft shops, antique shops, 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 8am onwards (we do allow earlier (7am 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.
