Weekends in August wil see sellers across Leigh setting up stalls at locations all over town and selling a huge range of items from outside their houses.
Dates, Areas of Leigh-on-Sea and Trail Stall Location Maps
Saturday 29 & Sunday 30 August – Elms & Chalkwell – 11am – 3pm
Stalls may be up and running earlier and may stay open later.
From baby clothes to handmade jam, from toys to beautiful carpentry, there are treasures and bargains galore to be had. Do stroll around the town, meet your neighbours, discover places in Leigh-on-Sea you didn’t know and support community causes as some sellers will be raising funds for local charities such at the Southend Emergency Fund (download posters below if you’d like to do so.)
Leigh has been split into areas for the Bric a Brac Trail. Each area has a specific weekend to set up and sell, enabling sellers to visit stalls in other areas around the town.
There maps above show buyers where all the stalls are. There is also a public Facebook group to join for up to date news : bric a brac trail Leigh on Sea
This is what you need to do If you want to raise funds for the Southend Emergency Fund:
- Join the Facebook Group for the trail and add the address of your stall so people can find you and then:
- Either display the ‘stall’ poster on your stall and donate all or some of the proceeds from what you sell
- Or put a self-supplied collecting tin on your stall and displaying the ‘pennies’ poster. Encourage your customers to donate their spare pennies or notes 😉
Then pay in what you collect via www.southendemergencyfund.org.uk
