​​​​​​​1970's Retro Gifts and Memorabilia . The early 1970's saw the introduction of decimalisation and the UK's entry into the common market. However, this decade saw a huge amount of unrest. It was a decade of strikes, blackouts, a 3 day working week and inflation. The cost of a Mars bar rose 300% by the end of the decade ! The summer of 1976 saw the weather turn so dry that water restrictions were enforced. Enough of the bad news !, this decade also saw the growth of package holidays abroad and new waves of music including Glam Rock, Disco and the Punk Era. Platform shoes and flared trousers were the order of the day. Watney's Party Seven helped get the party started, and we were splashing it all over with Brut from the advice from Henry Cooper and Barry Sheen. Star Trek and Dr Who led the way with TV science fiction TV and we saw the first episode of Crossroads (along with it's dodgy sets). The Muppet show began in 1976, and a host of American imports such as Happy Days, Starsky and Hutch and Charlie's Angels came to our colour TV's. The Chopper Bike (1970) was the must have boy toy, and later skateboards became the norm (if you could stay on them!). Classic blockbuster films such as Jaws and Star Wars were produced, which changed the landscape of the genre. Stroll around our categories above to search out your perfect 70's gift.
