Retro living 50s 60s and 70s

Collections of the past. So many beautiful things, that we just won't see in the future. Being a collector is so much fun, spotting something you must have at a market, garage sale or salvos store is exciting. Every collector knows they are collecting for our future museums, everything I collect will go, someday to the museums in our future. Kids need to see old record players and know what they are!

1960s hairbrush and mirror set. Every girl had a lovely crafted set on her dressing table. This set was just beautiful, so I kept taking pics.

These vintage 50s/60s Pomander air fresheners are quite neat. As a collector it's easy to go through phases, and wow I found 3 at a market so 7 now.. I like it when you get a few of one item.. fun collecting.

Genie bottles are simply beautiful. Don't buy these unless the tops match the glass bottle, as it always matches the design perfectly folks. These are getting harder to find now in mint condition and so pricey, amazing in the light to admire.

I flatted with a guy in the 90s, it was like living in a museum, a retro museum. Now that's my place, I love looking at things from the past, retro is too cool.
