I had a small blue canvas Le Sport Sac duffel bag/purse with white unicorns running-so 80's! Would be awesome to find it again!

I tend to re-buy anything I used to have that I really liked. I'm a nostalgia fiend. However...

Zephyr velcro trainers*. Purchased for a trip to visit relatives in Portugal. Best trainers I ever owned.

*'Sneakers' to those from the US.

I had many many family photo opportunities (had a pretty care free and happy life as a kid), but alas...wished someone had taken more pictures and especially some video. Although the world is a bit camera happy with the digital age and many pics seem to go on the computer and rarely viewed, I'd really like more pics of my youth...pics simply weren't as pletiful with the whole instant photo thing (at least in my world). I still have a vintage Poloroid that spits out the instant snap shot and like to use it occassionally...but the refills are dang expensive....

Hair.

Come to think of it, that's the same answer for the question 'what did you NOT have in the 80s that you wish you didn't have now'....

Or is that too much information? [Smile]

Isn't there a thread about collecting? well I can't find it.....yesterday I was reminded of something I do still have from the 80s now.

My little Gremlins record books.....the drawings in the books are awesome!! Wish I had a record player still!
