I've bunged in yet more fantastic stuff into my unit at The Customs House in West Bay, Dorset!!

Have a peep below at some of the goodies ...

Here we have some 1950s binoculars, complete with original case, instructions and cleaning cloth.
By chance I noticed, in tiny writing on the strap, a name and address written in fountain pen. It gives a tantalizing clue as to who were the first owners of these fine binoculars.
It reads ...

I'm guessing Red Tiles was the name of a cottage, and Dorchester-on-Thames is a village 8 miles south east of Oxford. It was even once used as a location in Midsomer Murders!!

This is a great 1912 Ford Model T Van with the Colman's Mustard colour and insignia. Made by Matchbox as part of their Models of Yesteryear range, it was produced in 1979.

Joe 90 Top Secret Comic Annual from 1969! From the classic kids TV show, the annual is absolutely packed with stories, cartoon strips, quizzes and pictures of other iconic TV shows of the time.  

Really cool tracksuit top from Spanish footie giants Real Madrid.
The famous team have won an astonishing 12 European Cups/Champions League, 33 La Liga championships, 19 Spanish Cups and loads more!

 Close-up of the Real Madrid badge on the tracksuit.

Just look at this groovy record case from the 1970s!!
 With its faux snakeskin cover, all your fave vinyls will look fantastic in this!!

Simple and stylish brass cigarette tin made by the State Express Cigarettes company in the 1950s. It would look great on a desk as a handy little storage box. Underneath you can see the companies logo stamped on it, and the tin in inlaid with wood.

Keep on checking the unit for new goodies, as I've often down there stocking up!!!
