Humber Street has fast become one of the most popular places to hang out in Hull, with a plethora of exciting shops, restaurants and bars popping up down there over the last few years. We thought we’d give a little shout-out to some of our favourite Fruit Market haunts on our blog this week, from savvy salons to peppy print stockists.
If you’re looking for some unique and affordable prints to decorate your house with, look no further than Form. Owned by graphic designer Joseph Cox and Alice Thomson, Form recently expanded to a bigger location down Humber Street, meaning they can now stock even more delights, whether you’re after art, stationery or quirky décor. The team behind Form are all about sharing the creativity of the brilliant people of Hull, as well as discovering work by artists, designers and illustrators outside of the city limits.
Another out-there staple of the street is Mousey Brown’s salon, which prides itself on adding a fun, modern twist to classic hairstyles. Manager Sarah Clayton opened the salon around two years ago, and her talented team of stylists have fast gained a reputation in the city and beyond for their amazing dye jobs, haircuts and styling prowess. Sarah also does work with the likes of Hull Truck Theatre, helping their costume department out whenever they’re in need of some wacky wigs.
There are some great clothing shops to check out too. Tessie’s recently moved from its location on Newland Avenue to take up residence on Humber Street, where they’ve continued to present pretty clothing, jewellery and accessories to the masses. If you’re more of a vintage fan, you can saunter into Poorboy Boutique and treat yourself to some old school clothing staples, from mom jeans to shell suits and everything in between.
Finally, one of the newest businesses to make a home in the vibrant area is Plant & Paint, where you can peruse and purchase stunning furniture, homeware and, of course, houseplants. Plant & Paint stocks everything you could possibly need to bring a new lease of life into your home, including the prestigious and iconic Annie Sloan furniture paint range. They even offer a large variety of workshops for you to get stuck into.
