I have to say, my favourite book buy of February has to be Jane Asher’s “Fancy Dress” (more photos below). I saw it in my FB newsfeed in a group called Charity Shop Shit, and was so taken went straight onto eBay and purchased a copy for £1. Best Buy Ever! I also rescued some 1980s Pins & Needles magazines from being recycled.
Last weeks finds were most plentiful, covering the carboot on the Sunday, followed by various charity shops during the week, and seem to have found lots of things in twos! I’m most pleased with the vintage He-Man and Stormtrooper figures, an Ever After High doll for 20p and the fabulous “Boring Postcards” book!
I came back with an unexpected pile of eighties goodies last Saturday, mostly all from the Salvation Army charity shop in Leigh On Sea. I found three Look In magazines from 1983, three TV annuals (Super Gran, Gordon T Gopher, and Fraggle Rock), a pack of Mr Men Snap cards, and a Bros 12″ single (I Owe You Nothing).
On going through a few boxes and bags stored in the attic this weekend, I discovered a selections of items from the early 1970’s worth a second look. Amongst all the old paperwork, there were piles of cut-outs and clippings from various magazines, including sewing patterns and recipes, there was a large amount of greeting cards (used and unused) and a few old paper bags.
