Ring of fire...

even school notebooks were dedicated to the fair in 58.
the inside of the notebooks were a whole book on themselves, if you took the time to put them together.

Some info

belgium textiel industry

Keep it simple.. Or not

unalit ( belgium fireproof plastic ) ashtrays

I want more ...

They come in all forms and colours.
Those ashtrays are starshape ' the 1958 expostar form '
It's a well know symbol for the world fair collector, but know that not all items from the fair have that star... Some people thing that, but some items were not realy for sale and did not have the star. Simple because they were not ment to be collector items...
