Collection Update...

Another 7" copy of Waterloo added to my collection - I like that they have the group member names along the top and then added ABBA in brackets at the end.

Collection Update - ABBA The Soap

Sorry for the lack of posts recently however I have been on holiday for three weeks plus I have started a new project at work so I have been fairly busy. However I hope to be able to be back up and running now. Just before I went on leave I added two new items to my collection. The first was a bar of the ABBA soap which was available in the UK around 1978...

The second was a new new bag which will come in handy for storing some of my recent collection additions..
