These items are from a column that ran in the Only Olivia newsletter from 1992 to 2007.
My thanks are due to all those dedicated fans who haunt record fairs and car boot sales who have shared some of their treasures here with us.
Collector's Corner needs jewels -
if you have a rarity you'd like to
share with us then email me at [email protected]. I can't help you get
any of this though - I don't have most of it myself! Nearly all of it has been loaned from
other fans - Collector's Corner is there to tell fans what's out there, not how to get it.
The getting it is down to your skill and expertise :-)
Each topic is a group of items on the same sort of theme - enjoy.
