Look In Mr Fraggle Gran

I came back with an unexpected pile of eighties goodies last Saturday, mostly all from the Salvation Army charity shop in Leigh On Sea. I found three Look In magazines from 1983, three TV annuals (Super Gran, Gordon T Gopher, and Fraggle Rock), a pack of Mr Men Snap cards, and a Bros 12″ single (I Owe You Nothing).

Spin A Magic Inman

After visiting the folks last weekend I came back laden with charity shop goodies (as per usual)! My favourite find was the John Inman With A Bit Of Brass LP, bought mainly for the cover. I also found four annuals and two story books. And a rather magnificent brown tie from the seventies…

78rpm Record Hoard

I picked up sixty 78rpm 10″ records on my way home from work a few weeks back. An absolute bargain! They are all singles, and in OK condition with very few either jumpy or broken. Most are from 1950’s, a few from the 30’s/40’s and one is from 1912 or there abouts.

Roald Dahl LP’s

I was really pleased to find these two Roald Dahl LP a short while ago, which are actually read by the author himself. There were at least four in this series (1975-1980), three read by Dahl and one by his wife Particia Neal. They have heavy cardboard covers and seem to be fairly hard to find in the UK.

Roslynn’s Fascinating Middle

So, after a particularly long dry spell of not finding anything of much note in the way of charity shop music, I finally came home with this hoard on Wednesday! A pre-dentist jaunt around Rayleigh’s charity shops proved most fruitful. I don’t usually look through the 7″ piles, but am very glad I did after finding a large selection of 1960’s children’s records and a couple of 1980’s picture discs. I got everything below for the princely sum of £8.50. Bargain!
