Helen Dobson is the latest entrepreneur to set up a business in Cwmbran. She has started to sell lovely scarves and handbags in the Market Village in the Cwmbran Shopping.
She said: “I’m meeting lots of people. The market is really friendly. You get lots of different people so that’s really nice.
“I used to work in social care and housing. I did that for twenty-plus years. I just fancied a change. I have always liked accessories and I was thinking about a little business. So I thought I’d give it a go.”
“The scarves in particular people seem to really love. Vintage is quite in which I’ve always liked myself.
“I looked at Cardiff and Newport market but I kind of like Cwmbran, it’s all undercover and obviously there is free parking. I come here a lot shopping with my mum so know it quite well. The market is nice with lots of different shops so it will attract lots of different people into it.
“What I like being in the market is people can see the things, feel the quality of the scarves and pick up the handbags.”
