Mad March Sale – Martin Aitchison, Shopping List


3a Things We Like by W. Murray. Illustrated by Martin Aitchison. Published by Ladybird in the Seventies.

Hope you’ve all had a good weekend.

Sunday evening’s addition to my Mad March Sale is another illustration by Martin Aitchison. Mum is giving a shopping list to Peter and Jane.

The Sixties version of the same scene is below, this time by John Berry.

If you have been following my March Sale stuff, you will know the rest…

This month I am making a determined attempt to get some of the ‘old stock’ from under my bed, and into the sale section of my shop. These are cards I made years ago, onto which my former contact details have been written. I will put a new card into my shop each day, for the whole month. Each will cost £2.50, less than half the price of my current cards. They are totally unique and come with a sewn upcycled envelope.

Although it will only scratch the surface, I aim to try and post (however briefly) every day for whole month.

As usual, the above card is made from a clean pizza box and is super eco-friendly, as everything used was rescued from the bin.

See you tomorrow,

    • Yes, did you have one? I did, I’ bet you did too.
      Was looking at The Vivienne Leigh exhibition yesterday and saw that one of her early films (1938) is called St. Martin’s Lane. Watched the first 15 mins on You Tube today (didn’t have time for the rest – but will), BRILLIANT! I know you will really enjoy looking at your stomping ground in 1938. Doesn’t look like a set for the most part.
