How Was The Winner Chosen
Just so there is no confusion, we want to outline the process used to select the winner. Each entrant was assigned a number when they entered the contest, we then selected a number at random using the ‘Random Number Generator’ at random.org, the winner being the user who had the entry number that was picked out by the random generator.

The Prize
The prize for this Twitter competition was a Retro Red Lips Telephone.

The Winner
The lucky number out of the generator was 271, so the winner of this competition is MissCatHarris, congratulations. We are making attempts to contact you now to arrange delivery of your prize.

Once again a big thank you to everyone who entered. We are hoping to run Twitter competitions on a more regular basis in the future, so keep following us on Twitter to be sure that you don’t miss out.

Some of us have been getting a touch into Call of Duty recently, but is it as satisfying and addictive as games of old? Well, to be fair, modern games are a million times better than oldschool games in so many different ways. But a little piece of us longs to be back in the day when you could do your homework whilst waiting for your Sepctrum to load (oh, and don’t forget to turn the cassette over halfway through). Or show off to your mates with your very own Duck Hunt bazooka.

So, we came up with 10 blasts from the past – perhaps not the very best games around in the 80s and 90s, but these special little treats still hold dear memories in our slowly numbing fingers. I’m actually humming the California Games song whilst writing this post!

Felix (on) The Cat(walk)!

by Lucy Smith on February 1, 2011

That purring preener Felix The Cat definitely has an everlasting vintage appeal. Since his first steps out of the catflap way back in the 1920′s, we have grown to love this silent (but stylish) tomcat! Cementing his uber cool credentials yet again, Jean Charles De Castelbajac’s Spring Summer’11 collection features the silent-movie star embedded in wild, tribal prints. Way to go Felix! Check out these beauties to take you through from day to night in feline fashion (limited stocks mind folks!)…
