I found this Bunty annual from 1980 in a charity shop recently. It took me back to my youth (well before 1980, I hasten to add), when I used to rush home from school on a Wednesday, I think, to see if my Mum had picked up my Bunty comic from the newsagents!
|I'm sure Bunty wore a vest in my day!|
Does anyone remember the cut out figure and clothes - I think these used to be on the back page of the comic. I faithfully cut them out and stored them in a little soap box.
The Four Marys, my favourite - this looks a bit dated for 1980 - wonder if it is an old story. Mabel and Veronica - the "baddies" - hmm, a bit butch, perhaps?!
Love this story "Nearly New From Netta" - about Netta who works in a nearly new clothes shop. Old lady brings in dress - a girl wants to buy it because "that style is back in fashion"! But the old lady wants it back! Seems she and her fiancé quarrelled while she was wearing that dress, he left her and she thought it might be bad luck. Ends up she lets the girl have the dress and everyone lives happily ever after!!!!!!
All that excitement in a charity shop!
Some of you may have been Judy readers - I swapped with my friend once we had finished our comics, but I preferred the Bunty.
Next comic/mag after that (once you were a bit older) - everyone's favourite - the Jackie! Oh, memories!
Have a great weekend.
