Classic Snoopy alarm clock

Snoopy

If cool and kitsch is more important to you than cutting-edge technology in the morning, you just might be the perfect customer for this Snoopy alarm clock.

Featuring the ever-popular Peanuts character (now over 50 years old would you believe) and his sidekick Woodstock having a snooze on the dog house, the clock is an old school bell-ringing clock, which has both a light and an alarm. Which is probably why it needs a battery rather than just being a wind-up clock.

Cheap enough, you can get one online for £13.50.

Sadie Flower Headband from Boohoo

Sadieheadband

With festival season in full swing, the high street has once again turned to that most iconic of events in music festival history, Woodstock, for inspiration. That's ideal news for lovers of the hippy aesthetic of the late sixties, with pieces like this Sadie Flower Headband from Boohoo on the market.

The headband is simple but unmistakeable in its vintage inspiration and looks, taking the feel of genuine flower headbands without the trouble of the inevitable wilting. The result is a truly hippy-inspired look that doesn't veer too far into the clichés that many sixties retro items can fall for.

Get yours from Boohoo for just £5.

Eastern Embellished Tunic from Wallis

Orangetunic

The use of Eastern and African influences in vintage fashion is often best remembered in later sixties looks, worn on almost everyone from The Beatles to Woodstock kids. The hippy aesthetic didn't die with that decade, however, with the 1970s taking those influences further into the mainstream.

This Eastern Embellished Tunic from Wallis taps into that time in seventies fashion, with a print and loose fitting cut that provides a more polished version of folky sixties style. The use of intricate paisley print, rich bright colours and a loose chiffon fabric combines to create a look that's just ethereal enough for the masses of the era.

It's available now from Wallis for £36.

Rasr-gene-wdstock-1-detaile-34137 
 
The Woodstock Experience Multimedia Boxset was actually released in 2009, to coincide with the 40th anniversary of the festival, but we must have missed it then.

The set is an official product, created with the assistance of Woodstock Executive Producer Michael Lang and was published as a signed limited edition of only 1,000 copies. Supplied in a handmade case, it consists of an authorised history by 60 musicians, staff and audience members, illustrated by Woodstock's official photographer, Henry Diltz, unseen photography of Dan Garson, a 7" vinyl record and a fine art print by Peter Max and an authentic Woodstock ticket.

Amazon and Paul Smith both have two copies each in stock, priced £395.
