An Isle of Wight couple opened their second gift shop in Shanklin yesterday (Wednesday June 29).

Gavin and Jo opened their first store, Eccentricsin 2019 on Ventnor High Street, selling gifts for all occasions and ages.

The couple have now opened their second store on Regent Street in Shanklin.

Publication on FacebookGavin and Jo said: “We’ve been keeping a little secret for a month!

“We’ve been busy, busy setting up our new little project, and if you’ve only seen one of us at Ventnor at a time…that’s why!”

Gavin has spent 30 years in the hospitality industry and Jo has 30 years in the retail sector.

As they got to know each other, they posted that they both shared a dream that one day maybe they could have their own shop.

Their goal was to open a shop offering gifts that you don’t find every day, different or unique, to offer or to treat yourself, that bring pleasure, fun and maybe even a subject talk!

Gavin and Jo said, “If you’re going out to see the new store, be patient…we don’t know where anything is yet!”
