I’d love a Babycham! – Once upon a Vintage

Back in the day, even before Liebfraumilch and Piersporter were considered to be the drink of choice for the sophisticate, there was Babycham – launched in 1953 and originally marketed as ‘the genuine Champagne perry’ this was ‘the’ drink for many.

Babycham glasses and fawn.

I’d love a Babycham!

Okay then,’what?’ I hear you cry, ‘does this have to do with Swindon?’ Well nothing directly except that I bought these the other day in the vintage shop – Once Upon a Vintage  – on Faringdon Road. I spotted them in the window and just couldn’t resist this blast from the past.

‘Once upon a Vintage’ is a veritable treasure trove of all things retro – so if that floats your boat then pop in and have a good rummage.

Personally speaking, I enjoy but yet am dismayed by vintage shops –  the latter by finding that your childhood and even teenage/young adult references are now ‘vintage’. Eeek. As if the mirror weren’t enough of a reminder of the passing years ……
