Stonham Barns Traditional Sunday Car Boot

General Details

Stonham Barns Sunday Car Boot is back on Sunday 7th April,  and I’m booking stalls already for the first one. (Covered stalls only can be booked). We are expecting 2019 to be our best one so far as we have grown every year and our popularity is still increasing. Everyone seems to enjoy the friendly atmosphere and non-aggressive buyers. The number of buyers and sellers has increased yearly and we are expecting records to go. Stonham itself sees many new shops, New Theatre, NEW Indoor Play area, New Crazy Golf as well as the popular Owl Sanctuary, Golf/FootGolf and growing number of craft shops so, the whole experience on a Sunday is also improving.

Visit us online as we have events on as well as the Car Boot for the first 8 Sundays. Visit http://www.fishfaceco/stonham-barns-car-boot

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. We have moved sides at Stonham so we have more room for sellers with no width restrictions. If the sun comes out Stonham Barns Sunday Car Boot is so popular.  

Remember, you can just turn up and sell from £5. Covered Stalls (£10) can be booked on 07817539168 (these come with a table). Bookings are held till 9am. When the events are on please note that you can still sell at the Car Boot from £5! and we are next to where all the buyers and visitors to Stonham park. Also, if it rains we have the covered stalls so, we always try and open.  

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.  

Everyone is welcome to sell at the Car Boot but we have a slight restriction whereby we don't allow Vans 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.   

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 pride ourselves on the fact that you can set up without being hassled by buyers. It isn’t allowed at Stonham. The atmosphere is great and for a Car Boot that is still only three years old it is probably the only Traditional Car Boot that attracts so many Antique and occasional sellers. We start slowly but, once all the shops and attractions are open you get a good steady crowd. Dogs are welcome and we get a great mix of all ages. 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…  

As you all know we do have the Covered market stalls (see picture on facebook adverts) at Stonham which have been a huge hit as you don’t need to bring a table. As well as restricting rain they also offer welcome shade in the sun. You can book them by texting me. Something that may also appeal to sellers is the fact that we allow sellers as much space as they wish. You only pay for vehicle size not space taken. £10 is the most we charge for a large van. We are different to most other Car Boots as we have people coming to Stonham to visit the other attractions and we all know that no one can visit without peeking at a Car Boot.  

Sellers tend to arrive at 8am onwards (although you are welcome earlier if you must) as Stonham really wakes up after 9am with the shops and attractions also opening at 10.

The covered stalls are great as you can pull up & set up on the provided stalls (table included) and sell and then pack up (hopefully lighter) and leave the stall behind. The Covered Stalls are £10.  

Alternatively, we are still the cheapest Car Boot in Suffolk so, we still offer the normal pitches. So turn up at 8am onwards set up and sell for £5 a Car, £7.50 a Van or £10 a Large Van (Car and Trailer is £7.50). Visit the links for details as we have so much more going on at Stonham with regular events, attractions and shops. Bring a gazebo or your own covers and join in the guaranteed Car Boot.

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 with a whole range of new exciting things opening in 2015. We also have two showgrounds with regular events, permanent loos and free parking for all.  

If you want to sell at Stonham Barns just turn up. Please call the organiser if you have any questions because we are a Traditional Car Boot where anyone can sell and sell well. 07817539168. Every Week you can now book covered stalls by texting me your Number plate, Car make and colour.  

Can I say again a big thankyou to Radio Suffolk who constantly advertise our Car Boot on the radio on Sunday mornings. This is really appreciated by all at Stonham Barns.  

Don’t take my word for it come and see for yourselves.

We are outdoors only but offer covered stalls.

Ok-ish, pretty average
We have visited this car boot sale several times over the years. Whereas the number of stalls have increased, the quality of the goods on offer hasn’t. If you are looking for very average house hold junk, you’re in for a treat.If you are looking for some special stuff, you will be sadly disappointed. As a car boot sale we would rate this as average. Nothing special, dime of dozen affair. If you happen to be near, do visit as it will give you an hour or so of looks at some stuff. But no more. You might be able to combine it with other events at Stoneham Barn that are more interesting
