“Southwold is a lovely town and increasingly popular as a staycation. It is busier than anyone has ever seen it”, said Cook, who added: “Karen, Caroline and I had been thinking of opening a shop here for some time selling antiques, art and ephemera.

Up popped the old Adnams off-licence to rent for six months which we can extend if we want. We renamed the shop No6 Southwold which opened at the end of last month and we are delighted at how it’s going”.

McCarthy deals in mid-century antiques, Lear is a local florist while Cook has been an art and antiques dealer for 30 years including standing at Adams Antiques Fairs in London. She has strong connections to the town.

“I’m from several generations of Cooks in Southwold – my father was last in business in the town 40 years ago as Cook & Sons, the local fish shop. He is now 83 and said that it was about time the Cooks were back in business in the town”.
