About Bookmark

I come from a business background and set to work from a very early age, cleaning floors in my parents pub before school and working in the kitchen at weekends this I think stood me in good stead for my future in business.  

I can see the way the high street is evolving and trends come and go.  I also notice the difference in gender buying and adjust my business to this to maximise my sales.

 Working in the catering and hospitality industry as a young girl taught me the skills to be polite and go out of my way for the customer and nothing has changed there either.  By the way I seldom got any money from my jobs it was all part of my contribution to the family and our lovely lifestyle we given.

Areas of speciality
Maritime, Cornish History, Military History, transportation and Art with many more genres inside.  I have an eye for the unusual
