This Sunday the Car Boot is in the Showground as Stonham will be turned into a Xmas Gift & Craft Fair with two marquees, the Ice Rink for kids and a funfair outside the shops. The Marquees are sold out so, why not sell to the same crowd for a lot less. Call me on 07817 539168 or turn up at 7.45/8am, at Stonham Barns on Sunday.
As mentioned we are on hard ground which has been enlarged and finished for Sunday. We are literally an extension of the Marquees so..
Our next step from here will be the covers at Stonham Car Boot which will make Stonham Barns, Suffolks only undercover Car Boot and with it coming up to Xmas we will soon be the only Car Boot still going.
Visit fishfacedotco for updates on the Car Boot and I can be reached from 5.30am on a Sunday Morning for an update on Stonham 07817 539168. I’d like to see our loyal sellers there to try us on the hard ground. Also, if you are coming make sure you let everyone know it's on the hard ground in the Showground and not in the field. Prices will change for the covered car boot on market stalls but at present we are still the cheapest Car Boot in Suffolk.
We are a Traditional Car Boot Sale that has been set up with the soul intention of offering a great family day out that is totally relaxed and thoroughly enjoyable. If you ask anyone that has been to Stonham Barns Car Boot Sale I think you will find that pretty much everyone loves the feeling of the Car Boot. It really is a great venue with pretty much something for everyone. In fact even our 100% beef burgers are getting rave reviews as we cook every one whilst you wait (apologies but, we prefer to make you wait rather than have pre-prepared ones). If you haven't been to Stonham read on.
I have tried to capture the scene of Stonham but, it's difficult to describe the special feeling of Stonham. I have been to many Car Boots and I have tried to capture a little bit of all of them in Stonham. The overall idea is that we maintain a very relaxed and stress free Suffolk Car Boot. We have particularly targeted one off or infrequent Car Booters as we know how enticing this is for the Buyers. The feedback we receive from buyers and sellers is extremely positive. I think that the real success of it is simply that we aren’t just a Car Boot and it's really pleasing to see the crowds moving from attraction to attraction. A prime example of that was Bank Holiday Monday when it rained and the Car Boot ended quite promptly. Instead of leaving a few of the sellers went off to the Owl Sanctuary whilst a few others went to look round the shops in the Antique Square. I hope that anyone reading this will do exactly the same when they come.
Stonham is a friendly venue with a calm and relaxing atmosphere. If you have been put off by the buyers that try to get into the boot of your car this is the place for you. We are a much more civilised affair. We are a genuine Weekly Traditional Car boot sale where sellers can set up in peace. We are open all day so, there is also no hurry to finish. Sellers can arrive from 8am but, we have the space if you arrive later (acres). Buyers 9am onwards. We are a new venue but growing every week and we are receiving excellent feedback from all that buy and sell. The local community have really taken to the Car Boot and come to buy and with all the events at Stonham we are acquiring more and more buyers. We do attract the genuine once in a blue moon sellers so, there are often some great bargains. Come and see for yourselves and remember we are still offering discounted selling. £3.50 a car load, £5 a van, £7.50 a large Van. Beat that.
Everyone that goes to the Suffolk Car Boot at Stonham Barns must be impressed with the venue as it really has something for everyone. The Car Boot itself offers everyone a very organised and stress free day and if you have the right items a profitable one.
We are growing every week and attracting more and more people to Stonham Daily as everyone really enjoys their day at Stonham.
Another huge advantage for Stonham Barns is being on the Tourist route through Mid Suffolk. We are also fortunate to have 2 showgrounds with regular events on them. The Car Show in August was very successful with over 600 cars on show which brings in a whole range of people to Stonham that haven't been before so, we are picking up a new crowd of people every week and that is on top of our normal crowd and the visitors to the numerous attractions at Stonham (see below).
There is an Ice Rink at Stonham on the run in to Xmas. We will also be holding Xmas Car Boots with Santa promising to drop in. I believe that there are planned Xmas events at Stonham as well
Added to this we are also still the CHEAPEST CAR BOOT IN SUFFOLK.
Stonham is a very civilized and friendly venue with a calm atmosphere. If it's a nice day the place just lights up and there is so much to do and see at Stonham.
Once through the main gate you will be directed straight on where you will be guided into the new Hard Ground position. Normally we would be in the field to the left but, we are utilizing the hard ground with the fields deteriorating in the Winter. Stonham Barns is a very popular venue with a crowd of its own visiting the shops and attractions. There is everything from Golf (practice + 9 hole course) to an Owl Sanctuary. Other attractions include an Antique shop, Toy shop, Jewellery and Fashion, Fitness Centre, Reptile House/Pet shop, Sheds/Log Cabins/Greenhouses, Post Office, Bed Shop, Gardening Centre, General Stores, Home and Cane, Hairdressers, Equestrian Clothing, Dog Training, Kitchen, Bedroom and Bathroom Design and of course my own Vintage Furniture and Fabric Shop. In addition to this there are regular shows and events at the showground and also a Caravan and Camping site. There is also a bouncy castle and slide (50p use fee), Crazy Golf and a permanent children's play area as well as permanent toilets and showers. Because of the nature of the venue the Stonham Barns Car Boot Sale can run till you drop. We have also set up an area where you can stay with likeminded people that want to stay all day, mention this as you enter the Car Boot. We are also free to enter for buyers. There are also fishing lakes, a Livery and a restaurant. There are also lovely walks around the complex. For further information contact Simon Tilley on 07817 539168 but, just turn up. You won't regret choosing Stonham as you will enjoy your day with us.
