By Grimsby Telegraph | Posted: 11 Jul 2017

Owned by Michael Rucki, the Gift Dude has just opened up in St Peter’s Avenue and is a haven for lovers of all things geeky.

Selling, gifts and comic-con related items, Michael is really looking forward to seeing old and new customers at his new shop at 10 St Peter’s Avenue.

“I just got to thinking that I wanted to do something for myself,” said Michael who is a self-confessed geek!

We’re talking Harry Potter, Fright Night, Freddy, Star Wars, Dr Who, Marvel and Buffy.

“Storage became an issue on the market stall,” said Michael.

“And I wanted to add more stock and not be restricted to the opening times at Top Town market.

“We have a good collection of Funko Pop collectible dolls which are selling very well,” he added.

And very popular in the Gift Dude is Michael’s collection of retro memorabilia.

Many will remember the original Game Boy, Anime , Zelda, Danger Mouse, Micky Mouse, He Man, Skeletor, Rainbow and Superman, well it’s all here in the guise of collectables and there’s even a Hogworths doormat and a Zippy oven glove.

The Gift Dude is well worth a look and even if you’re not a geek, if nothing else it will take you down memory lane.

There’s lots of gift ideas from themed t-shirts and lanyards, to pictures bags and collectable figurines.

“And I will be launching my new website very shortly,” said Michael.

The Gift Dude is open Monday-Saturday 9.30am-5pm and Sunday 10.30am-4pm.
