Hush Boutique opens on the old Maitland Mercury corner

From the Maitland Mercury report:
On Thursday the Mercury told the story of two women - Karen Meyn and Mary-Jane Foreman – both mothers of three who have decided to breathe new life into a former butcher’s shop that has stood vacant for eight years.
They have opened Hush Boutique, a women’s clothing store on the old Maitland Mercury corner.
Local historian Peter Bogan takes a look at the colourful history of the shop. 
The butcher shop in Hunter Street, Maitland (corner of Odd Street) dates back to at least early 1868.
