The Magic of Marilyn and other gems

Images of Marilyn Monroe are simply timeless, even though it’s the 50th anniversary of her death this year.

These classic black and white prints truly capture her as an eternal icon of beauty and sweet sexiness.

Framed print, unfortunately a new pane of glass needs to be fitted. Measures 62cm x 52 cm.

The print is labelled “Milton H Green photoportfolio”

We are the Champion!

What says champion better than a good ol’ trophy? And these vintage ones carry their past triumphs like a proud badge.

They’re what a winner’s cup should really look like! We have them in a range of sizes, from a tiny adorable vessel to a huge one you can use as a planter.

Some are also inscribed and dated – does any of these ring a bell?

Some new metal plate signs have also arrived! You’ll smile at the cigarette ones for their un-politically correct slogans.

Radio Gaga

35 years ago, this what people bought when they wanted music on the go. Have fun reading these old ads we dug up for Sanyo portable music players.

Can someone please please manufacture an i-pod version of these rockin retro beauties?
