We sell anything to do with men’s clothes including t-shirts, shorts, jumpers, tracksuit bottoms, socks, thermal garments, hats, boxer shorts, flip flops and trousers. My stall is open on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.”

How did you start?

“I started the markets in Liverpool working for other traders on weekends while I was a child. I liked it so much that I decided to give it a go myself and get a stall selling clothes as I’ve always liked fashion. I started on Kirkby Market as a casual trader in 1992 and I became a permanent trader in 1994, so I have been here now over 25 years! I trade on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, and I used to get my brother Darren to do the Saturday while I went to Greatie Market but he sadly passed away. I love the buzz and the banter with customers and my fellow traders, and I would love to pass the business on to my children one day.”
