Look what I found!

A long long time ago I used to make bits and bobs out of Fimo. I sold loads around xmas, but that was way back in the 80's/early 90's. I came across these unsolds while looking through some art materials that I'd stashed away when we moved house. They're some leftovers from my production line back in the day. I used to spend hours at a time making these kitsch little things. I made bears, pandas, polar bears, xmas puddings to name but a few and I used to sell them for £2- £3.50 a hit! Here's the thing - when I opened up the box, the smell of Fimo and varnish hurtled me back in time to the dining table (which I still have) in my little flat where I spent many a long night making them. Aaaah happy days! Hope you dig their kitschyness!!!!!


  1. Wow! These are just fab! So much work! How wonderful to find them and have so many memories too! It's wonderful when that happens, and with familiar smells and music too, it can just transport you back in time!

  2. Very nice. Wouldn't be surprised if you'd still be able to sell these, but for a bit more than before.
