Vintage G Plan Coffee Table

Loving this vintage G Plan Coffee Table that I chanced upon at the car boot this Sunday. It needs a bit of tlc but it will be just perfect in my living room when I'm done with it.

For Mash Get Smash

You really can't go wrong with a nostalgic tin of Cadbury's Smash. Love it or hate it that instant, powdered potato was one of the big food hits of the 1970's - all thanks to the martians and it's catchy For Mash Get Smash tag line.

Vintage Smash Tins

One of the tins still has it's original price tag on the back, 34p. Now that's value!

The Brownie Guide Handbook

The Brownie Guide Handbook was a firm favourite of the younger me. I loved being a Brownie and I still have my uniform, complete with pencil and 2p piece in the pocket.

This book is a gem for any 1970's  80's Brownie. In my store now.

Painted Drawers

Newly upcycled chest of drawers now in the shop. Painted with Autentico Dolphin on the outside and a stray pot of blue on the drawers. Beautiful.

Retro Classic Games

A couple of cool new games have just gone into the store. I LOVE Misfits, it is a real favourite from my childhood and Mike Read's Pop Quiz, well, that's an absolute 1980's classic too.
