ANTIQUES Bazaar in Crewkerne is going from strength to strength almost two years since launching, say traders.

The centre was set up as a business experiment to bring together a handful of traders who could benefit from one another.

Now the centre in South Street has more than 80 traders.

Founder Anthony Bucke said: “We are really fortunate with the high calibre of traders we have here, and the massive number of customers who visit us every week.

“Every day I am astonished just how many people come to see us – it is fantasic.”

Traders will hold a second year anniversary event from Friday, August 1, to Sunday, August 3.
