The follow up to the original Pure Mio, the Pure Evoke Mio Abacus Flower Edition by Orla Kiely throws in another of the retro-styled designs, plus a few new features to the digital radio itself.

eBay watch: 1988 Austin Mini Designer Mary Quant Edition


We have featured one of these in the past, but as they come up so infrequently – and we think they're a collectible of tomorrow – we're flagging up another Austin Mini Designer Mary Quant Edition.

This one dates from 1988, one of around 2,000 Mary Quant-designed Minis made at the time. But we suspect a good number have been scrapped since then. The ones that survive don't cost a fortune right now, but in time, they just might rise up in price.

The seller doesn't give lots away, but it looks like the outer Quant detail and that distinctive striped upholstery are all intact. Indeed, it's described as being in 'excellent condition throughout' with 'no rust, dents or scabs' you'll be pleased to know. Mileage isn't mentioned, drop them a line about that. Right now it's up for £1,800.

Update: Amazingly, another one has just gone up too, it's a bit cheaper as well. See details of that one here.

eBay watch: First issue of The Face magazine from 1980


Early editions of magazines are always sought-after – so this first issue of The Face magazine from 1980 is currently a real steal.

This 'style bible' (as it liked to be thought of) dates from 1980, with editing by Nick Logan, art direction by Nevile Brody and a writing team that included Julie Burchill, Ian Dury and Adrian Thrills. This particular also had articles on The Specials, The Clash, Madness, Public Image and Dexys Midnight Runners. Top notch imagery too.

It's described as being in 'near mint' condition with 'very slight wear on spine and very slight creases on top of rear few pages', nothing more. All of that for just 99p right now. Like I said, a real steal.

eBay watch: Fully restored Austin Mini Designer Mary Quant Edition


Yes, I know we featured one of these a short while back, but that was a model in need of full restoration. This Austin Mini Designer Mary Quant Edition has been full restored and is ready to go.

For the uninitiated, around 2,000 of these Mary Quant-designed Minis were made, a good number no doubt rusting away since the 1980s, so it's very much a case of future collectible we reckon. This one looks a real gem too.
