Kate Lee of Blyburgate Antiques, an antiques shop she has owned for 21 years in Beccles, also organises, as KC Fairs and Events, the biannual Beccles Antiques Street Market.

This is now in its 10th year with the upcoming event running on Sunday, August 11.

The market launched in 2009 as an annual event with just 40 stallholders but demand meant a second date was added in 2011.

Lee said: “We now have 100 stallholders and such is the market’s popularity we have an ongoing waiting list.

The enthusiasm from both the dealers and buyers has been key in making the market not only a success but a market with a great atmosphere.”

Suffolk street life


Street stall at the Bungay fair.

An antiques event that had run in the Suffolk town of Bungay for more than 20 years was renamed and relaunched last year as the Bungay Antiques Street Fair by local antiques dealers Kate and Mike Button of Black Dog Antiques.

This year’s fair is on Sunday, July 21, with around 70 dealers from across East Anglia and some up from London setting out their stalls.
