Residents can rent a space in the shop to sell their goods. The costs are negotiated on an individual basis and a small percentage is paid on every item sold. But otherwise all proceeds go to the individual trader.

Shop manager and jewellery maker Jeff Levi said: “We’re excited that this is a great opportunity for local people to sell in a shop on a busy high street. There’s been so much interest in the idea that all the

shop space has been filled and there is now a waiting list.”
