Open All Hours

I recently sold some vintage overall buttons via eBay here, and I was really pleased when the buyer, Tudor George, a costume designer got in touch. He is about to start filming the BBC Christmas special of the infamous British sitcom, "Open All Hours" and he is using these buttons in the show!

It's a minor detail, I know - but I was still quite pleased to find out and will be keeping my peepers peeled for when the show airs!

Remember, Remember the 5th of November

Guy Fawkes Night, also known as Bonfire Night, is an annual commemoration observed on 5 November, primarily in Great Britain. Its history begins with the events of 5 November 1605, when Guy Fawkes, a member of the Gunpowder Plot, was arrested while guarding explosives the plotters had placed beneath the House of Lords. Celebrating the fact that King James I had survived the attempt on his life, people lit bonfires around London, and months later the introduction of the Observance of 5th November Act enforced an annual public day of thanksgiving for the plot's failure.
