Super Sox

super-soxLaurence Whitcombe runs his well-stocked stall called Super Sox (selling a lot more than socks!) in the market area just outside Thain Wilbur, opposite Barclays Bank. He is a knowledgeable cheerful chap who will help you find just what you need.

One year.

What led you to running this stall?
I started doing this 30 years ago and just took to it.

What do you like about coming to Fakenham Market?
Very friendly traders and customers. My good quality goods are really appreciated due to the lack of such things in nearby shops.

Socks! I also sell underwear and nightwear for men and women, canvas shoes, belts, braces, pyjamas, T shirts, thermals and jogging bottoms.
