Although not much else is known of the antiques dealer’s life away from her career as she tends to keep it out of the public eye, although Caroline has previously opened up on how she first found her passion of antiquing.
She first tried her hand at antiques and collecting vintage items when she was a teenager.
Teaching herself the trade she later set up shops around where she lived in East Yorkshire.
