Fanzine Ynfytyn 27- Solitude Stand­ing digit­al version

In 2016 I left London to house sit in the small town where my grand­par­ents had lived. After a sequence of unfor­tu­nate events involving elec­tri­cians and train strikes I ended up spend­ing the whole summer pretty much alone in a town full of old people, where I knew no-one and there was very little to do, and I had very little in-person contact with other people. A situ­ation a lot of other people can relate to at the moment I think.

Bognor Char­ity Shop Finds

Here’s the best stuff I got for very cheap in the excel­lent char­ity shops in Bognor Regis (the only enter­tain­ment there). The reas­ons for so many good finds is fairly grim- lots of old people in the area who die and have house clear­ances of all the 60s and 70s stuff they were hanging on to. Everything cost less than £5.

I’ve done a new zine about that time in 2006 I acci­dent­ally spent a whole summer alone in Bognor Regis. For £2.50 you get both the zine and the mini zine I made at the time for the 24 hour zine chal­lenge. Find them here.

Recent char­ity shop finds

The good thing about spend­ing the summer in a small town full of old people is that there are a lot of char­ity shops and jumble sales, they often have good stock, don’t over­price and there aren’t a lot of other people look­ing for the same things as me (which is more likely to happen in a big city).
