1976 that was a lifetime ago but yes I still remember my days in Claremont, Harry Gargan was my manager Len Straw was on the radio counter, Cheryl James & Vicky Mac were my partners in crime in cosmetics.
Max Factor launched a waterproof make up & thinking I would be clever I put a fish bowl with fish in it in my display counter then I submerged a jar of the make up in it but the fish didn’t like it ( sorry fish !!!).
Oh my goodness then there was the pink & turquoise hair I thought Jerome Lewin was going to have an apoplexy. Such wonderful memories x
