Our Market Family

Updated: Apr 1

We spend most of our time amongst the creative and vibrant traders under the roof of the Outdoor Covered Market at Altrincham Market and we feel very lucky to do so!


Usually we are open 5 days a week parading our wares in a variety of collections; handmade, hand sourced, up cycled, hand sewn and hand thrown. Whilst life as we knew it has slowed down, we thought we'd introduce some of the visionary members of our market family... in no particular order...


We have Joe, our true Manc...


“JOE & CO" ARE PURVEYORS & GARMENT ENGINEERS OF BRITISH, JAPANESE & ITALIAN RAW SELVEDGE DENIM JEANS & TIMELESS CLASSIC WORKWEAR FROM MANCHESTER, NW OF ENGLAND THE FIRST INDUSTRIAL CITY IN THE WORLD FOR COTTON TEXTILE & MANUFACTURING AT THE TIME OF THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION.... COTTONOPOLIS

We have Martin, The Raku (not Reiki) Master...

"My pots are formed on the wheel, this process being spontaneous, immediately takes me on a journey as a companion of clay we are then taken to the resting place, where long hours are spent burnishing the surface of the pots with smooth stones, allowing for a time of meditation and reflection of our origins. The pots are then offered to the fire, allowing the elements of fire, air and earth, to embrace themselves in their chosen way."

We have Lucy, international style guru and business woman... who is actually just a puppet for Edwina the Cockapoo.

A Collectibles shop dedicated to the finer things in life. With a background in contemporary art and slight obsession with  buying (anything and everything I love) 

... I find myself the proud owner of Emslie, the lifestyle store merging vintage and contemporary living.

Then there's Steven & Gareth, who we can always rely on for their treasure hunting, humour and hysterical greeting cards...

A couple of Manchester lads who enjoy spending time together sourcing beautiful furniture, home wares and curios for you.

We've been in a relationship for over 13 years but created VH_Interiors in 2015 as we both wanted to spend more time together.

There's Rob, we, you and your four legged friends can always count on him!

B&V is named after my two dogs and we're a general store for dogs (& cats occasionally). We dedicate ourselves to YOUR four legged family. Whether it's a new collar, treats, bed or shampoo we've got it. We make and source our products either locally 'in house' or in the UK from carefully chosen makers and companies we've formed close relationships with. Many of our products are exclusive to B&V Trading and if we don't have what you want, we'll attempt to get it made for you.

We have Susan, our swanky market Sasspot...

I have always been crazy about colour. My style is quirky and vintage inspired and I love to make a statement. I believe that a simple accessory can change your look in an instant! We are pretty sure that Susan's vibrant hand sewn head wraps will brighten your day...

There's plenty more of the family to introduce in the coming days but we thought we'd get the ball rolling, we may be apart but still together in spirit...


Here's to each and everyone of you for bringing your own individual joy to the world, hope everyone is happy, healthy and maintaining a sense of humour...


Hugs all round,
