So, what’s hot for Autumn in the world of fashion?
Marvel jackets! Only $75.00 each!! This was way back in 1989, and according to Dollar Times that’s worth $150.27 in 2017!
Cheese. It’s the big cheese! It’s the cheese of the decade! It’s what all the smart kids are cheesing on about! Look cheesy in these cheese-tastic Cool Burger cheese T-shirts! Did we mention cheese?
More T-shirts! This time hold the cheese… we got superheroes!
But what happens if I want to put stars on my T-shirt? No problem. You can do that. All you need is a dollar and a Whoppers wrapper from 1979!
Get Confirmed with the Lilly Confirmation dress!
It’s back! The drunken sailor look, fresh for Autumn!
Put pesky puddles in their place with Viking footwear!
Cycle in style! But be careful of catching those bell bottoms in your chain – ouch! Just look what happened to the kid on the right! No more bell bottoms for you young lad!
Still feeling sporty? Get yourself off to some tennis with these Iris trainers!
And still feeling sporty? Skate your way into the hearts and minds of the fashion world with these waspish yellow and black cool rollers from Italy!
Two French ads by Hom. Yeah! 90s. Yeah, yeah, yeah!
Get kitted out vintage style! I went to some of these fairs when I lived in the UK. Always a good selection of clothing and jewellery!
And finally, for the kids, or the young at heart, or just really small people, why not try out some fantastic superhero costumes!
As always, thanks for looking!
