Covering the Goulburn and Murray valleys

Oct 1967: A non-stick fry-pan for only $1.59

In October 1967, portable typewriters were the next big thing and kitchenware could be bought for less than two bucks.

Times have changed but some things have stayed the same - 45 years on F.C. Johns are still one of the big jewellers in Shepparton.

Technology, however, has moved on a bit - while we're all gushing over the latest iPad or Samsung phone in 2012, back in 1967 it was the portable typewriter that was making waves at Goulburn Valley Office Supplies ad Machines.


We also loved the Woolworths ad from 1967, which boasted a stock clearance and urged customers to "Hurry to Woolies today!"

If you were lucky enough to make it to the sale, you could pick up slips, pantyhose (of the non-run variety, apparently), bedspreads and even car head rests.

Fashionable ladies could also get their hands on a lamb's wool hat for only $1.25.
