I have been looking for a localish event .ie 60 mile radius of Derby .Could not make the recent Sheffied one . Is the interest declining in jumbles period.
The good lady & myself helped the chap who ran the one local to me at Shardlow .Good location etc . The Long running East Midlands jumble at Long Eaton has finished .
I noticed foot fall at many had dropped in number of punters .Have they had their day?
Always enjoyed the crack .

I am not sure if they have had their day; then again I am not sure if you are referring to really big ones, which I've never been to.

My club's annual bring and buy sale is a small affair, it is this Friday night and am really looking forward to it; always a good evening. Club members bring in their used gear, along with local shops offering good deals on new items. Club members bake lovely cakes; it is probably the social highlight of the year!

I am a second claim member of another club, Kendal CC; probably the fastest growing cycling club in the country. They were only formed a few years ago and have 600+ members. They are going to have their first ever cycle jumble in a few weeks, with plans to make it an annual event if it proves popular.

Location: Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
Not sure if this is to far away for you. I went this year its a very good jumble.

Yes the Manchester Velodrome is a first class event . I have been 2/3 times as a seller over the past 10 years. Great place to clear the shed of to much stuff :facepalm: :facepalm:
I shall consider going again in January .

The Bygone Bykes jumble at Wombwell last month was cancelled due to a very poor uptake of tables.

we have one in Bristol - first saturday of the month at mud dock cycles, midday start

it's not very traditional - mainly local cycle community selling their spares to each other.

Free to sell, and it only runs for about an hour or so - proper feeding frenzy

Thank you for the heads up on the London area and Bristol events .
Unfortunately they are too far for us . Looks like it will be Manchester .
Plenty of punters in past years.
