Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

I’d like to take the opportunity to wish you all a very merry Christmas and happy new year!

Reflecting on 2015 we have slowly been progressing towards a significant goal, and if all falls into place towards the end of next year we should see a major change in how we run our business!

We will be taking a break from the online side of things for a few weeks, however will still be contactable via email & mobile (just may be a little slow in replying).

Take care, stay safe, and look forward to seeing you all in the new year.

Best regards, John.

“sex in a box”

According to wikipedia, that’s what Milton Bradley’s competitors referred to Twister as when it was first released in 1966. As enticing as that sounds, it’s not the reason I purchased this early Australian version of the game a few weekends ago.

Great Cover Art!

It was the cover art! How great is it? I suspected it may of dated from the 1960’s, and after a quick look inside my suspicions were confirmed – so purchased it I did.

1960'S Mid Century Board Game
Great Condition!

Once home, I pulled the board game apart, and was pleasantly surprised with it’s condition, which included the original instructions.

I honestly don’t think I’ve ever played Twister before, so perhaps over the Christmas break and before I add it to the online store I might just to see what all the fuss is about!


Parker Bedside Repairs

Lucky enough to come across a great matching set of Parker Nordic bedsides.

Condition was pretty good, however the leg on one had a previous repair which wasn’t quite up to standard, there was also a nasty gouge to the top edge and a small chip to the veneer on one drawer front.

Veneer repair!

With all repairs carried out, the original finish was given a light go over with some super fine steel wool, and then 2 coats of an oil/mineral turpentine mixture was applied.

Very happy with the end results! The bedsides will be available in the online shop with the matching bed head very soon.
