Chelsea skinhead Christmas cards

by Modculture 4 November, 2008


London Books is responsible for reissuing some great cult novels – and now some seriously quirky Christmas cards.

Two retro designs to choose from, the one above and another from the same era, featuring the messages ‘Merry Christmas from the Chelsea Youth 1970’ and ‘Happy Christmas from the Chelsea Shed’.

Ok, your gran might not appreciate it, but your mates just might. A pack costs £10 for 10, all with envelopes. You can order via the link below..
