thrifty storage

A little retro storage spied in one of my local charity shops. I'm assuming these were for storing singles, back in the days of my youth. You do remember having a turntable to play your records on, don't you?


At forty nine pence each I couldn't resist. A perfect way to keep track of my stationery collection, which seems to be growing...


When I had my mini cards printed I also had some note cards done. I love them...and then a week later I find Moo have suddenly discontinued them. I'm cross. I was going to get some more done, but I'm too late.

Ps :: If you'd like some of your own personal stationery, check out Tanya's great giveaway. You have until the end of the month.

How pretty the stationery looks Diana. Something so appealling about hte neatness of it all. I wish Moo were still doing the norecards too. have ordered postcards and ordinary cards, but am now wishing I had chosen some different images. Typical me. Have a good week lovely xx

That thrifty buy makes a perfect stationery rack.
We still have a turntable and loads of iconic LP's - they get played occasionally too!

I can just see my Mum's single collection in that rack, back in the 1970s! It's a great find, as these retro pieces are very collectible. It really does make good storage for your stationery. x

I cant tell you how cross I was with moo, especially as the news came, with a big discount the day after I had ordered 100 christmas cards in that design!! I just ordered the cards so I will let you know what they are like, as for the postcards , they are very glossy, so were not to my liking...hope you got my email re the present...love H

What a fab find. I've still got a turntable (and my parents have one which is in a sort of suitcase and will take 7 records at a time). I love my records. There's just something about vinyl!
