Stonham Barns Sunday Car Boot and Swedefest this Sunday 22nd September. We have had great crowds for quite a while now. This Sunday we have the Lorry Show which is back for its 4th year of running & a week later we have the American Car Show so two popular shows in a row. Plus lots of Sellers & Buyers guaranteed. We often have events running at the same time on so many Sundays this year so all great ones to sell at although we are busy on most Sundays now. Make sure you keep an eye on these. Our next event is this Sunday 22nd September with Swedefest.

Each Sunday you can turn up without booking and still sell from only Five Pounds. However, you can pre-book the Covered stalls NOW by texting 07817539168. These are Ten Pounds and that’s for any Sunday throughout the season. These do go quickly each week now. Otherwise, as usual, just turn up on the day from 8am. Stonham Barns Sunday Car Boot is famous for its great atmosphere where you can sell without being hassled by buyers. Stonham Barns is hugely popular and growing every year. Come and see why. We have a lot of events running at the same time as the Car Boot. Next one is next Sunday with Swedefest on the 22nd September and the American Car Show on the 29th September . All will be busier Car Boot days.

So, just turn up from 8am this Sunday. As mentioned we also have Covered stalls available each Sunday. These are great for protection from the sun/rain and no need to bring a table with those – 07817539168 to pre-book. Otherwise NO BOOKING NEEDED AND FREE BROWSING. Sellers are now allowed to sell any Home-grown plants and all gardening items but, so long as they are sold with other car boot items and not just plants.

Stonham Car Boot gets busier every week and Stonham is alive with people camping, the Holiday Homes full up and the popular attractions drawing more & more visitors to the Owl Sanctuary, numerous Shops and New Play area & now open New Crazy Golf (which looks immense). The Car Boot is one of only a few Traditional ones where you can really enjoy a friendly, peaceful day in the countryside at a venue that has so much for everyone to see and do. So why not come and have a great day out at Suffolk's friendliest Sunday Car Boot and come & see the NEW Stonham Barns with so much on offer. Early risers can get there for 7am but the sensible ones turn up from 8am.

Make sure you turn up & sell from only Five Pounds. We also have the additional bonus of regular events that run at the same time as the Car Boot so check the link so you can sell to the extra crowds. There are many more events this year at Stonham now which means that we will have many more buyers.

If you haven't been to Stonham Barns Sunday Car Boot come this Sunday and you'll love the friendliness of Stonham. Below is a little bit more about Stonham and the Car Boot, make sure you visit our Web Page and Facebook pages as it tells you a lot more about Stonham and what is going on weekly as it rarely is the same each week. We are open from April till November every year.

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 have had 150 sellers on some weeks last year and we are lucky to have buyers that actually buy. Stonham is known for its one-off sellers and Antiques (as well as all the normal Car Boot items) and in our Seventh year we are getting a good regular crowd of sellers and buyers. Everyone loves Stonham as its unbeatable when the weather is good. It has a great atmosphere, a knowledgeable friendly crowd made up of all ages. Families, young and old, dog friendly and caters for the disabled. You can still sell from Five Pounds right up to Ten Pounds for Covered stalls. These are really a hit with the sellers as you can book by texting 07817539168, pull up behind, set up and sell and pack up and leave at the end of the day. Alternatively, we are still the cheapest in Suffolk so you can just turn up from 8am and sell.

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. If the sun comes out Stonham Barns Sunday Car Boot is so popular.

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.

The prices are Five Pounds Cars, Small Vans Seven Pounds Fifty so are Cars with Trailers, Large Vans are Ten Pounds, covered stalls are also Ten Pounds. Buying is free as is parking.
