Stonham Barns Sunday Car Boot & VW Beetle-Juiced Festival 1st August 2021

Huge thankyou to everyone who ignored the weather forecast and turned up last Sunday. It was great to see everyone from other Car Boots turning up. Numbers were obviously down but everyone that attended sold well.


This Sunday we have the VW Beetle-Juiced Festival as well running with many of them camping there so another potential big crowd at Stonham Barns Sunday Car Boot. But, ignore the weather forecast!!


So If you want to sell, just turn up on the day and sell from £6 no booking needed. Covered stalls available.


So VW Beetle-Juiced Festival this Sunday  1st August and Dub Vacation & Bus Jam on the 8th August, the Classic Car Show on the 15th August and Knuckle Busters at the Barns on the 29th August so a busy few weeks ahead. These will all be even bigger crowds at Stonham to add to the excellent crowd that the Car Boot already has.


Despite the Covid changes we will continue to have selling on one side only but, not have the one

way aisles. Please let me know if you would prefer these to remain. 


Covered Stalls are available for this Sunday but these do go very quickly as there are only 20. These can be pre-booked on 07817539168 (text to pre-book). These offer some shade to sellers as well as a tabletop. These go really fast so text to reserve any Sunday. Everyone else wishing to sell at Stonham can just turn up on the day from 6.30am until 9am. Most people arrive at 8. 


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 larger vans £12. Covered stalls will now be £12. I hope this is ok with everyone?   


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 8 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 18th July 2021 & every Sunday until further notice.


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 and please clean items if you allow them to. These are suggestions only – you need to decide how you can sell and feel comfortable and safe.


Sellers will be allowed to enter the field from 6.30am onwards. NO ONE WILL BE LET IN UNTIL 6.30 SO DON’T ARRIVE BEFORE THEN AS YOU CAUSE TRAFFIC JAMS. Buyers will be allowed at the same time but – please allow me to get everyone into position so you don’t hinder this, thanks 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. Anyone pestering sellers will be advised to leave because we are renowned as being a friendly car boot. If anyone oversteps their mark we will stop buyers entering the field until gone 7am.


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.
