There is going to be an exciting event taking place in London next month ...

On Saturday 17th February at the Harrison Bar in King's Cross, the combined forces of Arcane Publishing and Oil54 are hosting another of their evenings of music and words.

Inspired by the dark streets of London in winter, witches and Film Noir, this will be a very special night with amazing guests performing.

I've been very privileged to be asked to do the visuals for this event, so check out a little teaser I did that is appearing on the Facebook page!

Have bunged a few new bits in my unit at The Customs House in West Bay, Dorset for the New Year!

Here is a selection below ...

This is a fabulous 1950s salt and pepper set on a wooden teak stand. 
Made by Wyncraft, it has a very 'Atomic Age' feel to it and would make a fantastic addition to any groovy kitchen!

Another item from the 1950s, an amazing milk bottle with original stamp mark. 
From the E&H Parren's Dairy in the village of Earith in Cambridgeshire, it could easily be used as a lovely vase for flowers, or even an original place to store all your spare coins!

A big stash of the classic boys' comic THE WIZARD dating from the early 1970s.
The comic was first launched by publishers D.C. Thomson & Co in 1922 before merging with THE ROVER comic in 1963.
It was relaunched in 1970 and ran for a further eight years before closing on 10th June 1978.
All in, there were 1,970 issues. 
In this bundle, there are around 45 to start your collection!!

This time a selection of THE HOTSPUR, again all from the early 70s.
The comic started life as a boys' story paper on 2nd September 1933, and ran for 1,197 issues until 1959.
It was then updated and relaunched as a comic, going on to clock up a further 1,110 issues before merging with rival comic THE VICTOR on 24th January 1981.

Pick up a few copies now and start collecting them!!
