Whilst on holiday recently in Cornwall we visited Flambards, a small theme park with a very good display about about war time Britain and I spotted this amongst the displays. The gloves and scarfs I could cope with but the knitted vest? no way, would never have the patience or the time.
I also spotted this in the wartime exhibition,really miss shops like these
somewhere to buy your knitting patterns along with the groceries
Until I saw this, I never realised that Sunny Jim was an advertising slogan! always thought it was just a saying/nickname.
Sunny Jim cloth doll, you would save the coupons and send away for him.
