tinaturner

An excellent specimen of low budget brilliance: a withered Tina Turner wig, a make-up design touting a unibrow, excessive bronzer, and lopsided fangs, a dropped V-neck pirate blouse with an unthinkable wad of fur bulging from beneath, a silk cummerbund, some trendy palazzo pants, and a pair of Robin Hood boots embellished with a strip of fur leftover from the chest….

….I also appreciate Lumiere’s decorative unitard and rain boot combo.

Rare ex-Music Industry Promotional Memorabilia & Collectables

We’ve secured a small but interesting collection from an ex-industry bod. Including rare oddities such as the GNR doormat, many promotional only display flats, a Hendrix canvas print, a Siouxsie signed drumskin, plus promo t-shirts from Tina Turner, Simply Red, Slayer, Bad Company and James Taylor.

A very mixed bag of genuine, vintage, collectables-  have a dig through our Memorabilia Store here

| i want to take a second to acknowledge & pay #respect to empress robbie marie montgomery (the one in the middle); musician, visionary & entrepreneur. #missrobbie was born in columbus, mississippi. after she graduated from #pruitthighschool, she  started her professional musical career. she began singing w/ a group called the chordrettes, later the rhythmettes & much later the ardrettes.  in 1959,  she sang background in the song ’#foolinlove’ for ike & #tinaturner, later joining the band. they were known as #theikettes (later becoming #themirettes, releasing the jawn ‘aint my stuff good enough’). after she left #ikeandtina she began to sing background for #thebeatles (yeah, you read that right) & in 1971,  she was a #nighttripper for #drjohn. after her son was born, she started singing commercial #jingles as well as having two bands: robbie special kinds & robbie’s dangerous curves. she overcame a lot after her music career paused & decided she would open a restaurant (#sweetiepies); & has been open since 1998. the restaurant has been named the number one soul food restaurant in #saintlouis. she also stars in the hit ’#welcometosweetiepies’ on #oprah’s network #own. she’s a hustler baby. i say all this to say how much i admire this lady as she followed her dreams from one spectrum through another. she started a #business & put her entire family on. i gotta get out there to grub one day too. i wish i could order through the d'hayum screen (laughs). salute to the homie tim (@the_timnorman), sweetie pies (@sweetiepiesstl), charles (@charlescrenchaw), lady janae (@janaesweetiepie), fyne-azz monique (@mz_monique_) & the whole staff. #missrobbiemontgomery is showing us how it can be done. she is an #inspiration & beyond. miss robbie is without question, the #blackexcellence.
