Whilst in Hull my friend and I came across a junk shop called 'Pauline Gift Shop' we ended up staying there for at least an hour trawling through all the clothes while the owner (Pauline) drank a bottle of red wine and told us all sorts of stories. If you are ever in Hull you can find her on Princess Avenue. Definitely worth paying a visit!

Kia ora from Whangarei New Zealand. I have been thinking about Pauline and thought I would google her. And thanks to lottie I see Pauline in her glory and true element. I had the privilege of meeting this fabulous woman in Ponsonby Auckland where I had a collectables come curiosity shop "Mildenhall". Long may the red wine flow. Keep up the brilliant work.

Did you know that Pauline is the Mother of the famous Hull born singer Roland Gift of 'The Fine Young Cannibals' (FYC) ?
