Atari Retro Gaming Wallets and Pouches

I just can't imagine having lived through the 70s and 80s without Atari and their iconic games, consoles and computers. No Asteroids, Tempest or Missile Command - the list goes on!  As someone who grew-up playing Atari games, and also having immense fun with the 800XL and ST computers, I am a big fan, and so I was really pleased to discover these official Atari wallets, which will allow me to remind myself of a big part of my childhood and teen years every time I need to pay for something. As someone who is a skinflint, opening my wallet does not come easy to me, so with one of these cool wallets I will, at least, have something to smile about! Firstly, I want to show you my favourite wallet, which is this very nice brown one with a round Atari logo and three stripes. I love these retro colours which really reminds me of my 70s childhood.   It's gorgeously retro, isn't it? You can buy this official Atari product on It features a coin section so you can pop do

An 80s Tennis Player Costume? You Cannot Be Serious!

While most people opt for a pop star theme when dressing up for an 80s party or event, one option that is a little more original is to dress like an 80s tennis player. The costumes I'm about to show are obviously based on John McEnroe, and I'm dead serious! The short-tempered tennis star became infamous for his confrontational behaviour towards the umpire during the 1980s, screaming "Answer my question! The question, jerk!" (when he angrily threw his racket at the juice cart) and "You can't be serious man, you cannot be serious!" when he thought the umpire had made a bad call about the ball being out. He was often booed by the crowds for his rants, but it was hugely entertaining to watch! Embed from Getty Images The look above is the one you should aim for, and this is the most iconic. So let's take a look at the fancy dress costume options available...     The white T-shirt and shorts outfit with red and blue stripes is based on McEn

Tiffany 80s Pop Star T-shirt for Adults

When you mention the name Tiffany to someone who grew up in the 80s, then it is certainly not a lampshade that springs to mind! Of course, it's the 80s pop star Tiffany Darwish, who is best remembered for her No.1 hit single "I Think We're Alone Now". I recently discovered a fabulous T-shirt for ladies and gents on the Retro Tees store on Amazon, which celebrates her biggest hit song. It's been on the site since 2019, so how I missed this one I'm really not sure! The shirt features a huge photo of Tiffany wearing a blue denim jacket (as many of us did back in the 80s), surrounded by brightly coloured geometric shapes in pink, yellow and turquoise, and the singer's iconic signature which appeared on all of her single and album sleeves. Sizes from X-small to XX-Large are avaiable in a boyfriend fit.  There are four seperate listings for the T-shirt which is available in blue and white colours, and I've added them all below.
