Dr Russell's Imaginarium..



A trip to Guildford is not complete for me unless I pop into Dr Russell's Imaginarium, the name alone is enough to entice! If you enjoy browsing vintage, art deco, retro, garagenalia and kitchenalia this is the place. The one thing I always admire and would buy in a flash, for Aimee, is the Betty Boop figurine based on the 1920's entertainer Baby Esther Jones. Here's the thing though, check out the tag on her foot.. it's Not for Sale, c'est la vie, isn't that always the way! Hope you're having a fab weekend, take care and stay safe... P.s. Boop-oop-a-doop :)

  3. THe sign on the front window advertises Art Deco, and the Betty Boop certainly delivers that. What an interesting place to explore.

  11. Hello! This is just my kind of shop too! Sometimes, I've found if the right person or the right price (maybe) is offered it has been possible to buy that not for sale item. It's like selling kittens or pups, you want those precious keepsakes to go to the right folks!

  13. Virginia once took us to a store in Birmingham like that. If they let you take pictures inside it's a gold mine.
