Michael Ackerman’s interest in antiques started 35 years ago as a hobby which he then turned into his business. He attended the very first Gordon Markets and has continued coming each month ever since. “I do good business here. While I sell to other traders and dealers, the majority of my customers are regulars and have been for many years.” “But I’ve always liked these markets. Being monthly and undercover is a great attraction. It means I can really look after my customers as well as being able to enjoy the friendship of the other stallholders.” Next time you visit the Gordon Markets, why not have a look at his stall – it’s worth the effort.
