Carol Spooner's vintage Christmas decorations

Now in its 33rd year Collectomania is the biggest show of its kind in the south of England. Exhibitors brought everything from wooden electrical fittings (courtesy of Brian Liddy) to fairy liquid bottles, collected by Dave Rudwick.

There was an early taste of Christmas from Carol Spooner who once again put her vintage decorations on display and Colin Davis brought his collection of children’s shoes. Everything ‘petrol’ was on show in Robert Pounds’ ‘petroliania’ collection and Pete Brewer brought his children’s annuals, Brian sharp displayed his Triang toys and Jenny Blake’s compacts attracted much attention.
