Monday 28 November 2022 02:20 PM Antique shop in Hull which sells golliwogs and Nazi memorabilia sparks backlash ... trends now
An antique shop has faced backlash on social media for selling Nazi memorabilia and golliwogs - but has defended their sale saying 'it's just history'.
Grannie's Parlour Antiques in Hull, which is a family-run business established in 1974, has drawn negative attention on Twitter after people discovered some of their more controversial items on sale, with critics calling it an 'extremist's paradise'.
Items include golliwog dolls, a framed photo of Adolf Hitler, a swastika flag, and a model of Hitler's head.
While some social media users joked about the World War Two-era relics, others voiced their concern that such items were on sale, asking 'How on earth is this [shop] allowed to operate?'
But the owner of the 48-year-old business responded to the social media outburst, arguing in favour of selling the historical relics.
When asked about the sale of controversial golliwog dolls, the owner told MailOnline: 'Mostly black people buy them... it's a shop about history.'
