Shop update

A few more new items in the shop for you today, including this tin from the 1970s, which I think is brilliant. The illustration of customers milling about in a shop and the shopkeeper waiting at the counter is just soooooo seventies (as is the colour combination of orange and brown). It's like a little piece of social history too, recording the switch from old money (pounds, shilling and old pence) to the modern system (with no shillings and 100 pence in the pound).


  1. So pleased I discovered Wooden Donkey today.. it has brought back some wonderful nostalgia for me.
    I also had one of these.. my parents encouraging me to save my pocket money.. It didn't work unfortunately..
