Great weather last Sunday and 148 sellers at Stonham Barns Sunday Car Boot. Down on the previous weeks 225 but still lots there and lots of buyers. I imagine school holidays ending and warm weather may have been the reason but still great numbers. This Sunday the weather looks good again and i'm expecting another good crowd. People keep asking when we'll stop for the year. Whilst the weather is good and the fields are dry we try and carry on till the end of November but, it will all depend upon the fields and whether it gets too wet for buyers to park on the fields. I will keep everyone updated on here.
This Sunday, as always, you can always just turn up on the day. No booking needed.
We have lots of events running at the same time as the Car Boot and the next is The American Car Show on the 19th September, followed by Swedefest Truck Show on the 26th September. The American Car Show will be packed out – so a must sell at Car Boot. The Truck Show is also popular too. These will all be even bigger crowds at Stonham to add to the excellent & constantly growing crowd that the Car Boot already has.
Covered Stalls are available for this Sunday & Monday but these do go very quickly as there are only 20. These can be pre-booked on 07817539168 (text to pre-book). These offer some shade to sellers as well as a tabletop. These are on the main field and you pull in behind them and set up. These go really fast so text to reserve any Sunday. Everyone else wishing to sell at Stonham can just turn up on the day from 6.30am until 9am. Most people arrive at 8.
Once again you do not need to book to sell at Stonham Barns Sunday Car Boot you can just turn up. Also, you don't have to arrive at 6.30am as many don't turn up until 8/8.30am 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 8. We have enough space for everyone.
Again, a big thanks to the majority who followed the distancing and one-way routes and abide 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 on 12th September 2021 &every Sunday until further notice.
We do now let Sellers enter the field from 5.30am onwards. We don’t really get going till 8am but, we have allowed early entry. Buyers will be allowed at the same time but – please allow me to get everyone into position so please 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. The reason we have become so popular is because we don’t have people harassing sellers. If anyone oversteps their mark we will stop buyers entering the field until gone 7am.
We are outdoors only but offer covered stalls. We will always try to open every week irrespective of the weather as we still get buyers and sellers.
Last thing – anyone bringing plants. You can if they are home-grown and you have other things as well. Please don’t bring plants only.
