I am a real "retro" '50s, '60's, '70's junkie - especially if the item concerned comes from Norway or Sweden. I believe it is common to have an attachment to the designs from the period one is raised in. I was born in the early 60's to a mother who was old enough to have served in WWII and a father with a attachment to musical theatre and the big band era. Hence I always seemed to be drawn to "stuff" which was deemed old fashioned by my contemporaries. And I've never been able to avoid this kind of shop as a result. Today I was good, I didn't buy!
