Today I received a box of unopened puppets and a large stack of memorabilia in the form of leaflets, brochures and posters. The delivery came from the son of a lady who used to work at Hamleys in London in the department selling Pelham Puppets in the 1980's. The puppets I received have never been removed from their boxes so I am being a little careful whether to open for photos or leave as they are.
I will add the four I haven't added yet to the shop over the weekend.
There's a 24" puppet that the owner didn't know what it was, so I bought it unseen, but it looks to be a Clown of some sort.
Keep looking tomorrow pm if that might be your sort of thing!
I'm Imogen from Norfolk, U.K. I have a love of interesting colourful vintage items, especially from the 1950's. Pelham Puppets are one of my strongest collecting areas. There is nowhere to buy vintage Pelham Puppets other than through internet auction sites and auction houses and I felt there was room for somebody to open a shop.
