Junk by name but not by nature – Ivor Hughes visited the monthly market on Sunday, 30 July. Here’s his report and photos:
This monthly event is run directly by Left Bank Leeds in Burley and not a sublet. Which explains why pitch fees are so cheap at £8 and public entry is fee. Yes, free.
Online, Left Bank Leeds describes it as an opportunity to browse over forty stalls from friends and neighbours who have decluttered their homes, wardrobes, sheds and craft and vintage stashes. And likens it to a car boot sale, albeit indoors. Nearly, but not quite …
Yes, just like boot sales, there are signs of decluttering and plenty of bargain prices. But maybe half of the stalls have established themes and several accept card payments.
No problems there – trade and semi-trade exhibitors make it a creditable indoor market and a useful venue for visitors to tap into potential sources. The pictures demonstrate some of that variety:
The next LS6 Junk Yard Sale at Left Bank Leeds, Cardigan Road LS6 1LJ, is from 10am-4pm on Sunday, 27 August 2023.
The minimal on-site parking is taken by stallholders and people with mobility issues. Early arrivals will have taken many on-road slots nearby. You may have to park some distance away.
