We bought these two vintage posters last week…
…they’re news stand posters dating from the 1960s – and are quite rare survivors.
The vast majority would be thrown away and replaced the following day without a thought… but someone decided to take these home.
We’re accumulating lots of vintage posters at the moment.
They’re perfect for filling the walls in our antiques centre pitch.
Travel posters, advertising and film memorabilia.
We look out for bright colours and strong graphics & artwork – or favourite subjects.
Framing is quite expensive (particularly when the item is about 6 feet tall as in the case of this Rollerball film poster!)
It’s well worth it for the end result though.
We’re trying to be strict with ourselves, but the odd one or two have sneaked onto our walls at home – for a while at least!
The majority will be on display and available to buy from Picture House Antiques in Todmorden.
If any of them really take your fancy, we could look into getting them delivered.
We’re adding to the collection all the time – we’ll try to show any new acquisitions on our Flickr pages.
