… and an increasing demand for sales brings an extra day for bargain hunters

Traditional car boot sales are about to restart at Stonham Barns Park – one of Suffolk’s premier leisure, retail and holiday destination in Suffolk – and due to their popularity, they will not only take place on Sundays but on Thursdays too!

While weather dependent, they are the perfect place to sell any unwanted possessions and buy a bargain or two at the same time. The Sunday event is boosted throughout the spring, summer and autumn seasons by the shows and events held at the venue’s Mid-Suffolk Showground but, is one of Suffolk’s most popular Sunday Car Boots.

The event is outdoors where sellers can just turn up and sell on the day. Covered stalls are available enabling sellers to guarantee a main field position and these can be pre-booked to avoid having to bring tables to sell from.

Car Boot

Says organiser Simon Tilley, ‘We are happy to be back again at Stonham Barns Park for the car boot season and that’s because this is the friendliest car boot sale in Suffolk – where bargains and treasure are discovered on a weekly basis. The atmosphere of the sale is fabulous, and the event is extremely popular with the local community and visitors to the campsite, holiday park and retail and leisure village.’

‘It is because it is so popular and well organised that we have had requests to add another day of selling into the week.  We will be starting the Sunday Car Boot days on 3 March and Thursday Car Boot days will be a new diary event, start at the beginning of April.’

Continues Simon, ‘We have built an amazing following at Stonham Barns Car Boot and decided to offer an additional day for sellers and buyers. We pride ourselves on the organisation of the event and the public love that it is offers sellers a stress-free day – without having to put up with buyers climbing into cars.

‘People love car boots as they love to browse, meet up with friends and grab bargains.  It’s amazing what people are happy to sell on! Buying online is always a gamble. You can’t beat going to a car boot and seeing so many items directly in front of you!’

‘Dogs are welcome too so everyone gets a day out!’

Sellers arrive generally from 7.00am and the shops and attractions at Stonham Barns Park then open at 9.00am and 10.00am.
