Sunday Car Boot at Stonham Barns from 8am on January 26th
Event on 2014-03-30 08:00:00
Bad weather affected last weeks Car Boot but, well done to the one’s that persevered as they all sold well once the weather picked up. Very difficult to have a good Car Boot when it rains for 2 to 3 hours in the morning but, we always try and open. Being on hard ground in Winter means that we always have a good surface without mud.
We are one of only a few still open at this time of year so, come and sell from £5 at the friendliest Car Boot in Suffolk. Stonham is a great venue with so much going on and the greatest potential in Suffolk. This year we have a bigger selection of events at Stonham which guarantee even bigger Car Boot crowds this is on top of the selection of shops & attractions that offer the buyers more than just a Car boot.
We are open all the way through January so, come and sell at the lowest rate in Suffolk. The crowds are picking up each week and as we go through the year and get into the field I expect us to overtake our present record of 112 sellers. The field at Stonham and the big friendly and generous crowd makes Stonham a great Car Boot. We are proud of the fact that so many people love the traditional feel of the Car Boot and that you can set up without being hassled by buyers. We run the Car Boot as slickly as we can but, offer buyers and sellers a great day out at Stonham with lots to do and good facilities.
Anyone that hasn’t been to Stonham Barns Car Boot before should always come in Summer as the crowds are great but, it is now that we are still open in January that everyone should come and buy and sell. We are working towards Stonham Barns being busy every Sunday irrespective of the weather. If the weather’s good we always fill up but, if you want to sell come anyway as we are getting good numbers of buyers.
I will add all the events we have booked for this year and list of must sell at Car Boots. One absolute must sell at date already is the 27th July which is the day of HESFES. Everyone selling on the same day last year sold well as it is the day when we have 1200 kids (from tots to teens) + parents camping at Stonham. It’s a good crowd before we even get our regular buyers. We have many events before then but, I wanted to make sure you all booked that date as a definite sell at Stonham day. HESFES advertise the Car Boot as one of their selling points and I guarantee good sales. Where have you heard a Car Boot say that before. We do also have several Car Shows + the Mid/West Suffolk Show, VW Shows and an array of new events.
You can call or text and book a covered stall (£8) (07817539168) or simply turn up from 8am and pay on the day (from £5 for normal pitches).
Stonham Barns is still the place to go if you want to sell in peace and quiet and have an enjoyable day with possibly the friendliest crowd in Suffolk. We start from 8am and really get going after 9am as the shops and Stonham finally opens by 10. On hardground, it’s a much more compact Car Boot and on a good day a very busy one. When the weather is good we get a really good buying crowd. Even when it rains we still go ahead as we have covered stalls that offer some protection.
We are also free to all Buyers & Stonham offers far more than just a Car Boot. Please read on.
We do get a lot of antiques + occasional sellers so there are always bargains at very low prices. Don’t take my word for it come and see for yourselves. Sellers tend to arrive at 8am onwards.
Anyone wishing to sell at Stonham call me as we now have no restrictions on anything other than Hot Food (+ cold drinks). It’s a Car Boot so, all are welcome. (The only restriction we ever had was on plants but, plants are welcome too, now).
Alternatively, we are still the cheapest Car Boot in Suffolk so, we still offer the uncovered pitches. So turn up at 8am onwards set up and sell for £5 a Car, £7.50 a Van or £10 a Large Van.
Stonham also has Farmers Markets (twice a month), we don’t organise these although you may recognise our stalls at these.
