Stonham Barns Sunday Car Boot & Springbreak Custom Car Show
This event has been and gone.
Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser
Amazing first Car Boot at Stonham Barns last Sunday with over 155 sellers and a huge crowd of buyers.
Back again this Sunday 25th April and our first event with the Spring Break Custom Car Show running at the same time. So an additional crowd added to the huge crowds we are getting already every Sunday now.
We expect another great crowd this Sunday.
The only bad news is that following additional costs at the Car Boot we have had to increase the pitch prices minimally from £5 to £6 for cars, Cars with trailers £8.50, Small Vans £8.50 and large vans £12. Covered stalls will now be £12. I hope this is ok with everyone?
Covered Stalls are available for every Sunday but these do go very quickly as there are only 20. These can be pre-booked on 07817539168 (text to pre-book). However, COVERED STALLS ARE ALL RESERVED FOR 25TH APRIL. 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 just turn up. You don't have to arrive at 6.30am as many don't turn up until 8/9am 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 9 and we have enough space for everyone.
Again, a big thanks to the majority who are following the distancing and one-way routes and abiding 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 Sunday 25th April 2021 & every Sunday until further notice. Last year we enlarged the sales areas as we are using three different fields so again I apologise for the extra walk for buyers but, the Car Boot is literally right next to where you park once everyone is in. Disabled parking is near the Owl Sanctuary or in the Coach Park. Please don't park there if you don't have a disabled badge. One last thing for buyers to note. If I have marked an area for sellers it doesn’t mean you ignore it and park in the seller’s areas…
I expect there will be more Sunday Car Boots open this year but, make sure you are organised and bring everything that you need to feel comfortable at the Car Boot. We do have food and drinks (hot and cold) and the toilets are open with a strict one in one out system. These are cleaned constantly throughout the opening times. You can literally just turn up on the day and sell. If you can’t get to the food van/toilet I am coming round to take pitch fees so ask me or ask your neighbour to look after your pitch. With the size of the car boot growing it does mean a longer walk to the toilet though.
Thanks to everyone last year who followed all that I asked. For your safety I suggest that sellers bring gloves, sanitiser & possibly masks if they choose to. These are for your own peace of mind and obviously because you are handling cash. You still need to decide whether you allow buyers to pick up items or not.
Food & drinks will be available as usual at the Car Boot. There will be only 2/3 people in the food van and they will also have gloves & masks. All Food and drinks will follow Covid 19 government guidelines. Sellers will not be allowed to sell cold drinks, Hot/cold Food without prior arrangement plus if you wish to sell plants you will need to sell Home grown only and also sell a variety of other normal car boot items. So plant only vans will be unable to sell unless permission has been given.
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.
