About Us

150 years ago in 1874, our great grandfather Henry Sneezum started our independent family run business aged 17 years old. Our first store was on Fore Street in Ipswich where he became a pawnbroker, clothier and jeweller.
Sneezums has continued through the generations, now being run by Elizabeth and Yvonne in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, where we have built strong relationships direct with a vast range of manufacturers to sell their jewellery, watches and clocks, binoculars, spotting scopes, telescopes, photographic equipment, gifts and much more.
Four generations later, we launched our online store in support and celebration of 150 years on the High Street - we look forward to welcoming more customers from further afield!
