Cycle Jumble sale this Saturday 2nd March 2013 - £1 entry
Organised by CTC
Erdington Church Centre, Station Rd, Erdington, Birmingham. B23 6TX (opposite Erdington train station)
Doors open at 10am
Event closes at 1pm but be aware that some sellers go home before that, when most of their stuff is sold so it pays to get there early.
There are pillars and railings outside the hall that you can lock bikes to, ideal to get train to.
Most stalls sell second hand cycle components and accessories, a few have new stuff and a few have vintage/collectors items.
The club stand has some real bargains. Park Cycles - a local well respected touring shop - will also be there.
Refreshments available in the cafe area.
See http://www.northbirminghamctc.co.uk/ events.
I went last year and got a decent pair of used panniers for £10 which are still going strong.
It's a great event, although it gets very busy in there. Ideal for cycle non-snobs like me for picking up cheap bits and pieces.
Nothing special but sorted stuff from garage/bike shed last night. It's a great event and deep dive into Birmingham's cycling culture highly recommended!!!
Hope this goes well, I'll be looking forward to the next one as I'm currently at work this morning :(
They seem to be every six months?, if they were a bit more regular they might attract a few more traders.
The North Brum one is once a year - attracts plenty of traders, the tables are always fully booked before hand. Limited by space as to how many traders can actually be there. The event is run by volunteers to help with club funds, thus once a year achieves the objectives fine.
There is one coming up in Nuneaton soon if you missed the Brum one.
Or the Hare and Hounds on March 19th?
