How long has the business been run­ning and how did you get into it?

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - RETAIL THERAPY -

mo­ment.

The Bazaar is new but Ana­to­lian­crafts has been op­er­at­ing for the last seven years. I started by mak­ing my own crafts and sell­ing them in the fairs and events be­fore grad­u­ally adding more crafts and gift­ware prod­ucts over time. What sets you apart from other sim­i­lar shops? The prod­ucts we sell are dis­tinc­tive to Turkey which are very visual and both colour­ful and at­trac­tive which makes the shop en­vi­ron­ment warm and wel­com­ing. What is your typ­i­cal cus­tomer? There isn’t one. Peo­ple of ev­ery age and back­ground al­ways seem to find

some­thing in our shop to suit them. What do you think you give to the com­mu­nity? A shop that of­fers some­thing dif­fer­ent and al­ter­na­tive from the high street norm. Are you run­ning any spe­cial of­fers? In Oc­to­ber it will be our spe­cial ori­en­tal rug month, so there will be lots of at­trac­tive of­fers avail­able on th­ese prod­ucts. We will also of­fer­ing a lo­cal home ser­vice in which our cus­tomers try a se­lec­tion of rugs in the homes of the cus­tomers on a non-oblig­a­tory ba­sis. Why did you open up a shop in Che­sham? I live in and work in Che­sham, I love the place and the peo­ple, so open­ing a shop here was a nat­u­ral thing to do.
