The 80s was, in our opinion, hands-down the greatest decade in the history of modern civilization. There has never been fashion like 80’s fashion, hair like 80’s hair or music like … you guessed it, 80’s music!

We also believe that nothing quite compares to 80’s reading, that’s why we have put together a collection of ‘Vintage Fiction’ books.
Some of the classic 80’s gems we’ve acquired include the Sweet Valley High series, the Trixie Belden mysteries and the quintessential book of the decade: Flowers in the Attic.

If you’re a fan of the Riverdale series on Netflix, you have got to check out our Archie, Jughead, Betty and Veronica comic books, and MAD Magazines were, and still are totally rad!

It wasn’t too long ago that ‘Chat’ meant simply to have a conversation with someone... using actual speaking and actual words, and that having 600 ‘followers’ would be the stuff of nightmares.

Please come and check-out our 80’s teen’s bedroom display in the KIP and borrow some ace Vintage Fiction. Feel free also to ask us about anything 80’s, such as; what is a boom-box? What did A Flock of Seagulls sing? And what on earth is that brown stuffed animal on the bed? (It’s an ALF doll).

Even better, have a conversation with your parents about life in the awesome 80’s, before mobile phones, the internet and social media.
