I was just passing the delightful St Nicholas Market in Bristol, when this stall grabbed my attention. But this was just the taster stall for a completely gorgeous retro collectables shop called Cream & Chrome (website here) that's just opened in the market proper. I went and had a look, and I wish I'd had my real camera with me. It had everything from the funky lampshade that we had in the lounge back in 1979, to the Grandstand TV computer game that was the first computer game I ever saw played (my cousin Simon had one.)

Nostalgiatastic.

Surf Liquid Warning Label

I got a free sample of washing liquid this morning from a woman handing them out in The Galleries. I'd be more tempted to try it if it wasn't for this label. I mean, "IRRITANT"? "irritating to skin"? "avoid contact with skin and eyes"? These are exactly the kind of warning you want to see on something you're going to wash your clothes in, aren't they?

I notice that my usual brand, Fairy, doesn't have to carry this warning label. Think I might just stick with that one, thanks.
