Tell us about your business

“I’ve traded at Kirkby Market for the past 28 years – I offer a wide range of DVD’s and Children’s toys. In the past 12 months I’ve really grown the toy side of my business, offering a large range of toys at competitive prices.”

How did you start?

“My business started as a hobby really – whilst I was off work I started trading at a car boot sale in Tuebrook and sold out on my first day.

I continued with my day job for another five years whilst trading at car boot sales and Markets in my spare time.  I ended up quitting my job and becoming a full time Market Trader.

When I started at Kirkby Market I traded two days a week from one stall, trading at other Markets where possible.  Twenty-eight years later I have two stalls at Kirkby and trade the traditional Market days of Tuesday, Friday and Saturday.”
