by Laura Johnston

Introducing July 2018’s Trader of the Month…

Jenny Wolfendale – Jen’s Wool & Haberdashery

Tell us about your business

“After moving across into the new market in 2014, our business has grown as we can trade more days than on the old market and we have increased to two stalls. We trade from stalls 26 and 27 on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays – this way, we can offer our customers a variety of trading days for ease. We value our customers and have some very loyal ones who have come to us from day one! We have our own Facebook Page and advertise in the Kirkby Extra newspaper every month.”

How did you start?

“My mum and dad first started out at other markets in Liverpool including Speke, Garston, Toxteth and Great Homer Street around 35 years before coming to Kirkby Market. I took over the business six years ago and my mum still helps out. We began just selling haberdashery and introduced wool in our business in the late 80s.”

Tell us about your offers:

“We have knitting patterns available for £1, seven balls of Eskimo double DK wool for £9.99 and when buying material, you can get a discount on your sewing pattern (£5.99 instead of £8.99).”
