Hello!

I'm currently selling a pair of 1963 Etrona Beatles boots (men's size 6-7) on ebay and wondered if any of you might be interested. Collectors say they haven't seen them on ebay for at least 10 years so if you'd like a pair, now's your chance! They're currently going for 99p so you'd stand the chance of getting them for a really good price - and if I have to let them go for less than I expected, I'd rather they went somewhere they were appreciated! You can find them here:

These were the iconic Beatles boots, the best known make sold by mail order at the time. Their adverts appeared in NME and MM Magazine:

And became a design icon in their own right, to such an extent that Andy Warhol had them made into one of his silk screen readymades in the mid 1980s:

I'd really encourage you to have a look!

You know, I don't think this forum is really made for advertising...?
