I've had a busy bee kind of week in the little vintage shop where I work, we have been selling bunting and union jacks galoure!
It's good to see folks getting into the spirit of things really...
I can remember so clearly the Silver Jubilee and have quite a bit of keepsakes from this too.
We had a street party held in our local school and being of a certain young age, I can remember thinking,"whats all the fuss about".
I can now safely say, I am of a certain age and am looking forwards to the weekend and our local vintage fair, that is being held in The Railway Terrace fields complete with swing boats, a brass band and marquees selling vintage wares!
aww and of course cream teas..
I can't wait!
I will perhaps be wearing a little red, white and blue too!
A little nostalgic picture or two here.
This is my my man's junior school picture for the silver jubilee ,he's the one back row left hand side three from the end, looking rather shy,with a cute bob hair style!haha..
He doesn't know I am showing his photo on here, but my picture of the Jubilee isn't nearly as sweet, as I am in my secandary school years with a little more attitude and am a lot less happy to smile for the piccy!
Yep I have a toy boy!
I love all the streamers and colours on the photo.
The lovely vintage glass here is again from my keepsakes and has the Coronation date of june 2nd 1953 on it..
Local news papers of advertisments from 1977!
Still in tact, I loved the old pictures on these..
I know I will be having a Pimms or two, this weekend!
