flea market finds

I'm playing along with Sophie from Her Library Adventures and this week my finds have a distinctly sixties flavour!


1960's  beach umbrella, Gidget style (new in the packet, I had to open it to take the picture)


1961 copy of SUSPENSE, a monthly crime journal full of short stories, politically incorrect jokes and super bad illustrations.




Conquest of Space! Part book, part album and produced by Nestle prior to man walking on the moon. This book is full of pictures that the young collector had to add herself. I'm wondering if the little picture cards didn't come in a cereal box? They're all there, not a single one missing! I especially love the certificate at teh front of the book, ';to prove my interest in scientific progress'! How awesome is that!

  1. that umbrella is just beautiful... will be lovely for picnicking / beachgoing / relaxing under - when it's warm enough of course... but good for dreaming about in the meantime!

  10. The umbrella is fabbo (I am channelling Gidget) Now you need a mu-mu and very large hat to complete the picture and be like Laru. I love any kind of card collection book. Would love to see those picture cards.
