Five rummaging dates for your diary.

Good Jumble

As the name suggests, you won’t waste time wading through moth-eaten jumpers and dodgy denim at one of Good Jumble’s sales. Expect quality, barely worn pieces from high street brands like Topshop, Urban Outfitters, Reiss and Whistles. St Hilda’s Hall, SE23 1PL. goodjumble.com. Crofton Park rail. May 16, 2pm-5pm.

Aldersbrook Jumble Trail

The Jumble Trail initiative encourages locals to set up stalls outside their homes and sell their unwanted items or handmade wares. Aldersbrook’s first street sale promises a mix of vintage clothes, kids’ toys and even some Cameroonian wooden masks. Aldersbrook Rd, E11. jumbletrail.com. Manor Park rail. May 17, 11am-3pm.

South London Vintage Kilo Sale

Turn up and fill a bag with vintage jumble. Once you’ve got a kilo’s worth, take it home for a mere £15. There’ll be five tons of vintage stock to choose from, dating from the ’70s onwards. Lambeth Town Hall, Acre Lane, SW2 1RW. Brixton. judysvintagefair.co.uk. May 24, noon-4pm (early-bird entry from 11am). Early bird £3, general entry £1.50.

Clapton Jumble Trail

The Clapton leg of the Jumble Trail is back for the third year running. With 40-odd stalls confirmed already, it’s one of the biggest and best-established of these crowd-sourced sales. Expect everything from homemade jam to antique jewellery. Around Clapton, E5. jumbletrail.com. Clapton rail. Jun 14, 11am-4pm.

Leytonstone Festival Jumble Trail

The E11 edition of the Jumble Trail ties in with the annual Leytonstone Festival, so there’s sure to be a good turnout, with a Scandi fashion stall already confirmed. Leytonstone, E11. jumbletrail.com. Leytonstone. Jul 12, 10am-4pm.
