Just When You Thought It Couldn't Get Any Tackier

Posted

I thought I'd seen it all on eBay but Northern Soul tableware just about scrapes the bottom for me. I suppose if people are producing it there must be a market but this sort of thing just saddens me.

If you must have a look at this "Northern Soul Dinner Set" it is [here]

Why oh why :lol:

Oh dear.

Look at all the other stuff they have as well.

Do folks actually buy this kind of thing? And if so why?

It could have been a cooler design and £99 is extremely expensive for what it is. No where near as cool as the Homemaker crockery I had :lol:

Maybe you guys are looking at it all wrong.

Ok its crap, but it so crap its kitsch.....so its very collectable.

Think about it as an investment.

I am the proud owner of a Wigan Casino toilet roll holder - the value of which can only go one way!

For those who have a "Love Starved Heart" I think it's a great idea to eat some of our food off this crockery set, you could have a tasty Memphis Soul Stew followed by Maxine Brown's "Baby Cakes".

If you enjoy that "Double Cooking" and "you went and ate the whole thing", then try some" Apples Peaches Pumpkin Pie" and for those on a diet there is always "Burnt Toast And Black Coffee".

A pinch of spice can always improve a meal and "A Case of Tyme" can come in handy.

Just took a look at his feedback

He's making a killing

Shame he hasn't any "Do I Love You" wallpaper, curtains or lampshades though.

Think I might buy one of everything plus the NS baby bibs, dog coats etc etc and get Lloyd Grossman in

Steve ....there's already a bog roll on the market that does the jobbie........ it's got the words "R SOUL" on every sheet :D

Not sure if it's an instruction of how to use or a pun :ohmy:

But that dinner service is just the trick me thinks ...our lass was just saying the other day ,how she could do with a new one for the xmas dinner.

Well it's either that or buy some of them bootleg records off Kev Roberts and melt em into shape :D

There you go again - picky picky picky - you record collectors are just so obsessive (big sigh). Hey up Sutty how's it going?

Now I can fully understand the mockery heaped upon this mountain of tableware - but I tell you what -

if those delicate fine bone china items had been made in the sixties many on here - myself included - would have been soiling themselves** to get hold of 'em.

Pretty sure I'd have been picking up the odd piece here and there on the quiet.

Ebay would've been getting trawled every night and I'd have been the first to out bid ya.

And then 10 years later on forums just like this we'd all be going "yeah I remember getting my first Motown teapot, a special limited edition one with glazed silver trim on the lid from a sale in Woolworths for a couple o' quid. Tried to buy a few more but they only had the one. Even now I still wonder what they had left tucked away in the backroom".

Time to walk the dog. In the snow. Again.

** Must make it clear I wouldn't have soiled myself 'cos mi nappy takes care of that sort o' stuff.

:D ....tw@t...... :lol:

Actually, I'm sure it's Kimbo who is selling this, a proper nice guy, well into his Northern.

He lost a leg a few years back , pretty sure it was after a car accident returning from either a soul night/nighter, but he still supports plenty of events and even still gets up to dance on the odd occasion.

Not something I'd buy, but at least he's got the gumption to set up a business supplying stuff that obviously sells and pays his bills, so can't knock him for it.

Apologies if that's knocked the stuffing out of any of you cynical old turkeys during the season of goodwill to all men .. :lol:

(To be fair he's got a good sense of humour and would probably laugh off any criticism/p*sstaking)

Back to Ezzie.....the Royal Wedding Allnighter was a goer till you let the cat out the bag mate....now there will be 20 of 'em all in the same night within a 50 miles radius :lol:

Ho ho ho...

Big hug for you Mace & Niki & Derek for showing some festive spirit .

Yes they are a really nice couple and yes they are just making a living just like other people that do T-shirts and beer mats and clocks and cards and northern soul knickers ..Why not tea sets and mugs?.

Not my personal choice but hey ho lets live and let live eh .

I have seen many people buy from this stall at weekenders so there is a market out there ....its all part of the Circus as they say :lol:

It must take ages to pack and unpack that lot when they set up stall I am always very nervous when i give them a hug that I am going to knock the lot over with one my burlesque moves :lol:

Mery Christmas .... tis the season to be Jolly ..... fa la la la la ...la la lala
