Stallholder Access

To access the site you will need to show your email from Niomi Parsons, titled "Stallholder Access" to one of the Museum team on the gate. Our team will be onsite to help with wayfinding, but we cannot help set up your stall or transfer stored stock to your stall except in exceptional circumstances.

Promoting the Yard Sale to your audiences

We'd love it if you would keep spreading the word about the Yard Sale on your social channels, your website, enews – however you communicate with your audiences.

If you delivered items ahead of the Yard Sale you will find them stored in the Georgian Room by the North Lawns.

Stalls

Each stall covers a total area of 3m x 3m with

  • Canopy and back covering
  • Table (1.2m x 3m)
  • White table skirt

We can provide wooden stools to sit on, but you are welcome to provide your own chair. Please provide your own tablecloth to cover the table and your own groundcloth to stand on.

Please do not attach anything to, or make holes in the canvas material covering the stall. Items can be attached to the metal bars supporting the structure.

Pack down

The Yard Sale closes to the public at 3pm when all stallholders will be able to begin packing stock and undressing stalls.

We may revise the end time if there are still lots of visitors and lots of stock left on stalls. In this case, the Yard Sale will close at 4pm as advertised.

The Kingsland Road loading bays will be available between 3pm and 4pm and priority will be given to stallholders bringing removing large or heavy items (such as furniture) from the site. No slots have been booked for departure so please be considerate of other stallholders when leaving the site.

Please take all your rubbish with you. Bins on site are for food and general waste only.

We thank you for your pre-event pledges and your generous support to the Behind the Door campaign.

Why we're doing this!

All your donations from sales on the day will go towards our Behind the Door campaign.

We are covering the hire cost of your stalls (£35 each from The Stall Hire Company) so that you can donate as much of your income as possible.
