Stonham Barns Sunday Car Boot & Gone to Earth this Sunday 21st July. Yet more great weather and we expect lots of sellers and buyers with both events running at the same time. 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 next week for Gone to Earth on July 21st and the week after an Antique Fair on July 28th plus lots more coming up in August and September.

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 is for any Sunday & Monday (if a Bank Holiday). 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 this Sunday with Gone to Earth on July 21st. There's an Antique Fair on July 28th, Dub Vacation on the 11th August & The Classic Car Show will be on August 18th which will be packed.

The Car Boot is open on BANK HOLIDAY MONDAYS this year so the next is 25th/26th August. Stonham Barns also now has a brand new Theatre where there are shows on virtually every Sunday adding even more people to Stonham each week.

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.

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.

Bounceability meet at 157 Colchester Road, Colchester Road, West Bergholt (2.1 miles)
Bounceability is something we are born with. Think about a child learning to walk. No matter how many times they might stumble and fall, they get right back up again and try again until they get it right. The trouble is that as we grow up our view of the world is shaped and fashioned by our experiences, and sometimes we become fearful of trying again. We get stuck into negative patterns of behaviour and ways of thinking and sometimes just don't know how to change. Have you got stuck or just forgotten how to be happy? Have you given up trying? Maybe you could use some Bounceability.
So whether you feel as if you are in a rut but can't figure out how to get out of it; if you have made bad choices and are struggling with the consequences of your decisions; if you have a bad habit that you want to eliminate; if you want to lose weight or stop smoking; if your nerves are getting the better of you or if something outside your control has had an impact on your life, or whatever is stopping you from living the life of your dreams, you need some Bounceability.
