On Thursday I took a wander into Leigh to see what I could see, and came back with three My Little Pony: The Movie figures, RoadBots, Power Rangers: Time Force, Care Bears, Zelfs and Trolls, plus and a wonderfully illustrated biology book from the 1960’s. And on Monday, I found another My Little Pony, Sonic The Hedgehog, Felix The Cat, Shnooks, a few mini items (Littlest Pet Shop, Star Wars, Disney and Moshi Monsters), a lovely illustrated children’s book, and three volumes of Golden Hands sewing magazines from the 1970’s.
A few weeks back I received these eagerly awaited beauties; two craft books by Ed & Stevie Baldwin featuring some of the most creepy 1980’s pantyhose craft creations you’ll ever see. It was possibly more a “thing” in the US, where pantyhose sculptures were to be found adorning tables at church fates and old peoples homes the country over. The English translation of “Tight Crafts” conjurers up images of playing sardines whilst crocheting.
