Linda Blincko Has Just The Ticket!



South_Africa_V_Auckland

Our very own Linda Blincko is in the New Zealand Herald talking about her latest Devonport op shop find and what was hiding inside it!

A brown suede coat discovered in a local op shop yielded an interesting piece of New Zealand history. A Devonport friend with a penchant for retro fashion tried on a stylish suede coat made in New Zealand under the long retired label Selby, an item of interest in itself. In the pocket she found a ticket to a rugby game, South Africa versus Auckland at Eden Park, dated Saturday, 5th September, 1981, one of 16 matches scheduled to be played around  New Zealand.
