Let’s have a party! November 21, 2011

Posted by sarahstretton in All categories.

The latest Research Collections display has gone up in Peirson Library. ‘Let’s have a party!’ features catalogues from our Kay’s Catalogue collection and was put together by our Graduate Trainee, Sarah Stretton.

The display shows catalogues from the 1960s and 1970s and provides plenty of inspiration for your seasonal party. Check out the luminous pink Christmas ham for excellent party fare or compare the price of gin then to the price of gin now! Girls, leopard print was just as fashionable for a party in 1979 as it is today. So, if you’re passing be sure to have a look!

If you enjoy the exhibition, you can find heaps more Kays catalogue images on www.Worldofkays.org


Host the most fabulous party this festive season with the help of Kay’s Catalogues from the 1960s and 1970s

It’s an excellent mini-exhibition which brings back fond memories of afternoons on my Nan’s sofa, browsing the toy section in the catalogue whilst I planned my dream Christmas present!
