(1988, 1989, 1992–2010) sly and grasping junk shop owner. She is Howard's "Aunty" and while both have a general predisposition towards sneakiness, Aunty Wainwright is much more adept at applying it. Clegg is reluctant to go into her store, since she always sells him something. In addition to her junk shop, she has also been seen owning a junk yard where Compo went to meet one of his long-time loves. She is extremely mean, and pretends to be cheated when she gives the slightest discount. At Compo's funeral, she grabbed Eli by the arm and pretended to be blind in order to avoid giving money to a collection outside the church.

As with several other characters, she originally was seen in a "one-off" appearance in the 1988 Christmas Special Crums, and was so popular that she was brought back, eventually becoming a regular from 1992 until the end of the series in 2010. Note: Aunty Wainwright is no relation to Mr Wainwright from the library.
