Stonham Barns Sunday Car Boot – Despite an overnight Storm and Father’s day it was a good turnout and a good crowd. Not quite the 170 the week before but, this Sunday we have History Alive 2022 on at the same time and it’s a really popular event. We are hoping for good weather and lots of buyers. We are the best priced Car Boot in Suffolk so come & sell from only £6 and still free parking & buying & everyone welcome to just turn up and have a look around as there’s lots to do at Stonham.
As usual no booking needed so just turn up and sell or browse. Covered stalls are available but these always go quickly, text 07817539168 to reserve one for any Sunday or Bank Holiday Monday. We have some left for this Sunday.
I’ve had a few questions about when we actually start. We always used to start at 8am and most people do still turn up at 8am but, we do get people arriving stupidly early onwards. So, it’s really up to you. 7 onwards is sensible.
Events run at the same time as the Car Boot so a huge crowd always expected. The next one is Sunday 19th June with History Alive 2022 on 26th June and Gone to Earth 17th July. We also have quite a few others in July and August including the Classic Car Show on 21st August 2022.
Prices have remained the same with selling at £6 for cars. Cars with trailers £8.50, Small Vans £8.50 and large vans £12, Vans with Trailers are also £12. There is NO NEED TO BOOK. Covered Stalls are available for every Sunday/Bank Holiday Monday but these do go very quickly as there are only 20. These ONLY can be pre-booked on 07817539168 (text to pre-book). These offer some shade to sellers as well as a tabletop & protection against wind & rain. These are on the main field and you pull in behind them and set up. Everyone else wishing to sell at Stonham can just turn up on the day.
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.
Everyone loves Stonham as its unbeatable when the weather is good. It has a great atmosphere and a knowledgeable friendly crowd made up of all ages. Families young and old, dog friendly and it caters for the disabled. You can still sell from Six Pounds right up to Twelve 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 7am and sell and that’s every Sunday & Bank Holiday Mondays from April to November. We are also lucky to benefit from regular events at Stonham where the Car Boot crowd is often doubled & that’s on top of a very big buying crowd.
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.
We let Buyers in at the same time as sellers but – please allow me to get everyone into position so please don’t hinder this 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.
