About Vintage Stuff

The aim of Vintage Stuff is to display some of the ephemera that I have collected, often inadvertently, over the years. I am now deliberately seeking out interesting old adverts, screen shots, leaflets, obscure record covers, picture postcards and illustrations; anything that catches my eye, in fact. They will be mainly, but not exclusively of UK origin (so many vintage blogs appear to be American) and almost always a scan from something that I actually have in my collection, rather than off the net. If you do re-blog, please acknowledge the source. Further stuff, mainly photographs, can be found on my Flickr pages, via the Benny Hill record cover.

Municipal Pride

Two city guides from 1926 (Leeds) and 1928 (Newcastle).


  1. Oh, I am so going to get addicted to your blog. I love vintage paper! Can't find enough of it, mostly for my scrapbook. I haven't been scrapbooking for very long so I'm not quite sure where to find vintage paper. Which is crazy because I have been a paper junkie all my life. Go figure.

  2. Thank you for your kind comments! I have a mountain of stuff to scan and I find that having so much old paper around, my room is actually beginning to smell like an old bookshop.........
