Sweets for pop pickers!

For many of us over the age of 35, Sunday evenings inevitably meant taping the Top 40 countdown off the radio.  None of us would ever question the skill that was required in pressing Record & Play together when a song began, with our fingers ready to slam down the Pause button, just as the DJ strategically interrupted at the end.  These were the days of careful editing, with cassette tapes whirring back and forth in our endeavour to create the perfect mix tape. For those of us who weren’t too hot in communicating, romantic messages were relayed on romantic mix tapes  c/o Jennifer Rush, Phil Collins et al. whilst Donna Summer, The Bee Gees and Liquid Gold really got the party going! Sadly, it seems those days are long gone.  Not only have cassettes been replaced by CDs and then downloads, but we’ve now also been informed that the countdown is to be moved to a Friday evening.  This, say experts is to help “re-ignite excitement and reduce piracy”.  Reduce piracy?  Taping the countdown was a national pastime throughout the seventies and eighties for goodness’ sake! But we here at Ashby Treats aren’t giving up so easily.  We have such happy memories of those days that we decided to memorialise them indefinitely.  Unfortunately, none of us still have our mix tapes and cassette recorders (let’s face it, most tapes ended up wrapped around pencils in an attempt to reel them back in!) Still, this fantastic selection of vintage cassette sweetie tins are guaranteed to bring a fond smile to your face – particularly as we can pack them chock full of delicious goodies! There are five tins available in the range: –          The mix tape –          The favourite mix v3 –          The love mix –          The party mix –          The cassette recorder At only £3.50 for a mix tin and £8.50 for the cassette recorder tin, why not treat yourself to the whole lot and create a display that is guaranteed to be a talking point!
