Vintage Tuesday: June 1968

An Isle of Wight themed vintage Tuesday. The Isle of Wight is a pretty old fashioned, vintagey place; someone said to me about my Instagram feed, that it looked like id gone away to the past with all the pictures of pretty little shops. First of all I got another 1960s June annual on the Isle of Wight. I got it from a shop in Ryde called 'Fantastic Shop' which was run by a really lovely and friendly lady. It was, at heart, a comic book store, but it was unlike any comic book store I've ever been to. I've never seen such an emphasis on vintage comics and magazines. She had some really cool stuff, old playboys, time outs from the 70s, 50s teen magazines as well as a bunch of silver age spider-man comics that I'm kinda glad the boy didn't have enough money left to buy.

I chose this June because the girl on the front reminds me so much of Sally Draper.

Also in Ryde, a whole shop dedicated to dr who. I think I found the geekiest place on the island.
