Sober looking men doing DIY while smoking a pipe, swinging girls and 1950s/60s adverts. What’s not to like.

Brilliant! Brought my Dad back to life – I’d forgotten he used to get this magazine. Got any more?!
I’ll see what I can find.

Is that the joker advertising Valspar paint!?! “Valspar the paint to give you nightmares!”
How do I subscribe on line?
As far as I can tell, it has been out of print for decades.
If I can find some more I’ll do another blog post.
Thanks for commenting.
I just found some in the loft.
I have 25 copies from between October 1955 and February 1958 which were my father’s. I see them advertised on eBay at from £3.99 to £5.99 each. I am thinking of selling them on Gumtree for £25 the lot or individually at £1 which I will donate to starving children.
My husband has about thirty of these mags which he bought before I knew him then when we were buying our first house in 1968′ these magazines were invaluable when we were doing DIY,and the prices of materials then is just unbelievable, !!!He is wanting to sell them now as we are downsizing and need to clear stuff from the loft.
