The gallery:Vintage

This week at The Gallery the theme is vintage-something old you own.

After trying to think of something I remembered Alf and Alfreton my two little puppets I got a long long time ago.

I found them in a auction in a box full of rubbish hidden in the bottom.

This was about 25 years ago now but when I got the out the kids did not like them and told me to hurry up and put them away. Haha, I can understand why they do not like them, even if I do.

What made me laugh was I found them hidden in this carry bag. Shoefayre was the place I had my first ever job. Over 20 years ago!! I am sure this bag  is vintage too now!…

    I do understand the kids! Its just like looking at the photos of some of my old clowns dolls that I collected back in the early 80's and gave away in the late 80's. Its a bit creepy and I was wondering why I like them in the first place?

    I have some puppets like that in the loft that were my mum. They are a little creepy too! The carrier bag is so funny. You must keep that as a pice of your own history!
