A Trip Down Memory Lane - photo donation and discussion thread

Postby lejackal » Wed Jun 21, 2017 10:13 pm

This thread is for you to add your own photos of UK price stickers and share any memories you may have of the shops that your childhood goodies came from, I can then integrate that into the main reference thread and also try and do a bit of research into the shop and what happened to it.

Thanks and hope you enjoy it

I remember "Bournemouth Toy Centre" very well, spent many hours there looking at Star Wars.
One of the only places I ever saw a Tydirian Shuttle.
I need to check what it is now as became Toy Master then closed (it's a Sprinkles) :(
We also had a big Tesco, WH Smith's and a old toy shop called Setchfields that carried a lot of stock right up to 1992 ( 3 figures for £1 ) :shock:

Great thread. I was looking for this sort of info. Does anyone know of somewhere that has some nice price sticker info. I have been trying to find some old Toymaster price stickers.

I think I got my figures from Toymaster (Toycenter?) and maybe also from Woolworths?

Here's a 'Toy + Hobby' sticker that's on an AT AT I recently purchased, to be honest it's the main reason I went for the walker. I believe 'Toy + Hobby' only had a few branches in the north west, with my local being in my home town of Wigan. I remember paying 2p bus fare and spending an entire Saturday afternoon in the store :D

A couple more I've just found, I've just realised this is an old thread but still may be of interest to others.

Love the 'Conways Arts and Crafts' sticker on Leia Poncho! That's in Keighley, West Yorkshire and is one of my childhood shops :D It actually still exists as a toy shop today.

Thanks these photos are amazing. I have been recreating some faux old 80's price stickers. I love the old store logos like Woolworths and WHSmiths. Great memories.
