Vintage Doctor Who treats found while spring cleaning. Real time travel!
I think most came from the Brisbane Ekka in the late 1970's (the manufacturing date says 1978 on a couple) and most are from the Doctor Who themed showbag of that year.
I found a 25th anniversary postage souv. That's almost 25 years old now.
I also found a nice mouse pad featuring the "Cloven Hoof" - the pub from the Jon Pertwee story "The Daemons". Its even signed by Katy Manning.
My favourite items are the ice cream packaging for the Streets Doctor Who ice cream. I could find two of the stencils and I know they were much used at the time. For some reason the collector in my husband didn't keep one of the actual ice creams - how disappointing!
This find caused much reminiscing - that's the best kind of time travel.
