Please Introduce yourself...

My name is Sue. I live in Clevedon and I deal in decorative antiques and Vintage items across the south west, selling at a number of trade shows, markets and in some retail outlets, I work with both trade buyers and the general public. My passion is for french style antiques that have charm and that special decorative quality. I love seeing my pieces finding their next home.

Tell us what you will be bringing to the Clevedon Sunday Market

I will be bringing an eclectic mix of both Antiques and Vintage items, some with a French flavour.  From vintage linen French sheets to gardenalia, small silver items, vintage China to pretty pieces of Jewellery.

Tell us about how your business started

I was brought up around Antiques and Vintage pieces.  With an appreciation for attractive and well made items, I have been collecting over the years.  I decided to take my passion further and started selling items, firstly at the previously named Hill Road Market in Seeleys and since then at local fairs and most recently through Facebook and my new etsy shop.

Tell us what you love about markets/ trading at markets such as the Clevedon Sunday Market

I enjoy the excitement and atmosphere of Markets, meeting people and finding them that special piece.  I particularly enjoy Clevedon Sunday Market as it is my local market.  I enjoy being part of the community in Clevedon.

Tell us something about Clevedon (a memory, a reason to visit, what you love about Clevedon)

Clevedon has a friendly family atmosphere.  There is a real community spirit.  We have beautiful parks, architecture, seafront and lovely country walks.  Everyone knows everyone and look out for one another.
