miechelle-bullen-jewelleryMiechelle runs the M. Bullen Jewellers stall as part of her business run jointly with her husband Marc. You can find her stall in the market area outside the Bistro.

Where are you from?
Wisbech.

How long have you been at Fakenham Market?
About 4 years.

What are your opening times here?
8am – 2.30pm.

What other markets do you attend?
Between the two of us we go to Huntingdon, Long Sutton, Thetford, St Ives, Kings Lynn, Boston, Downham Market and Wisbech.

What led you to running this stall?
We wanted a change from working for others. My father-in-law owned a jewellery and watch shop and I worked there for 20 years, and have taught my husband all I know.

What do you like about coming to Fakenham Market?
The whole atmosphere -it’s great! Especially on a summer’s day it feels like you are on holiday. It’s my favourite market.

What are your best selling items?
Batteries and watch straps, watches, silver jewellery priced from £2 – £200! I also buy in gold and silver.
