Boot sale finds - Curl Up and Dye
I was fascinated to find this set of vintage hair styling irons complete with an instruction manual and original box mailed to a Miss H Brown from "Edwards Harlene Ltd of Lambs Conduit Street, London" on 30th April, 1930.
For just 50p I think it's a wonderful piece of social history - I imagine a 1930's bright young thing recreating the waved hairstyle of Greta Garbo with her wind-up gramophone playing modern jazz and a large tumbler of gin at her side.
Whether I'd be brave enough to try them out is a different matter.
