Some Actual 1980s Sticky-Back Vinyl

Bought this Storeys self adhesive contact vinyl c. 1983. Just used a bit to edge the bathroom cabinet and a battered old cupboard at my flat. In 2009, my wife came across the remaining roll at the back of the in-built wardrobe at our house.

I was really excited and greeted it like a long-lost friend - "It'll look great on the blog!"

Said she: "You're barmy, do you know that?"

Another found relic from the 1980s: "Ooh to be ah jet setter, be ah head start..." Limahl and the Kajagoogoo lads appearing on a lovely sew-on patch. At the time, I thought Limahl's rather unique hairdo was great.
