    Hiya Crompton I sell there quite often and it is on this weekend. The charge is £5.00 a car, whereas before they would take the £5 as you drive in due to queues and complaints from the Sully residents, they come around for the £5.00 once you have set your table up.

    I believe that some sellers start queuing outside at 7am to get a good pitch, the earlier you get there, the closer to the top end of the field you are. I tend to get there for 7.30am and find myself half way in the field. They have tried to stop traders too so the majority of sellers are people just de-cluttering and trying to make a few bob.

    The Sully club toilets are open for the public to use and there are the usual burgers vans, hot drink sellers there too.

    I didn't sell last week but had a lovely morning just wandering up and down the field buying plants for the garden. At times there have been up to 500 tables set up in the field so lots of choice and variety.

    Generally, most sellers pack up around mid-day, if I am selling I park the car, go for a wander then set up my stall. There is usually a steady stream of buyers with the peak time at around 10am.

    Good Luck if you do go tomorrow

    It was fabulous. We arrived at 7am (ish) and we were unloading the car and got swamped by people looking for a quick bargain. Nice day everyone was very pleasant and it was packed(the stalls went as far down to the bottom hedges overlooking the sea!) In total we made £135 (after taking out our float and £5 to sell) lol it was a great day and i reconmend it to anyone.

    Well done Crompton, there cannot be many more weeks left for the Sully sale, if I am correct the last one will be on the next bank holiday weekend so that means only 3 to go before they end for the winter.

    Hello Crompton I did not go to Sully yesterday because I am trying to declutter at the moment and with the planned extension we are losing alot of our storage space, as it will be demolished before being rebuilt.

    OH tends me I am abit of a shopaholic so I resisted the temptations of lots of bargains that I don't really need !!!

    Hello I'm from Barry too, the next car boot at Sully is this weekend (on Sunday) and then the following Sunday. They then stop until next year. As for times I find the earlier you get there, the better the bargains so I turn around 9am and they usually start packing up around lunch-time

    Thanks for these posts - I've yet to try Sully, but I think I'll give it a go this week before it closes - perhaps even go to sell the following week. Can anyone give me some directions please? We'll be travelling from llantrisant way, along A4232.
    Cheers,

    Hiya FEvans I have replied to your PM but yes the Sully boot sale is on tomorrow. I would get there for between 7-7.30am to get a good place. It was due to be the last one tomorrow but due to bad weather there may be another one on 17th September. It costs £5.00 per car, usually a high turnout with it finishing around lunch-time.

    Bessemmer Road does have a boot sale on Sunday, been there but if I had a choice it woud be Sully every time.

    Good luck with the selling - Welshy x
