How did you start?

“I’ve been working at Kirkby Market since I was 15 years old – initially for my brother’s business until I started my own at the age 21. 28 years later and we’re still going strong!”

“I specialise in glitter fabric wall coverings on a standard roll size which covers 5.4 sq meters. These rolls have been specially made for my business and are not available in stores. Traditionally, this type of covering is only available in the sq meter and is sold at around £30. My covering offers excellent value for money.

“This fabric covering is normally £60 per roll but for the month of November these rolls are on offer at £50 per roll.
