New Framed Pieces at the Antique Centre Today

We have been busy hanging some new pieces on the wall today at the Woolloongabba Antique Centre. A really different 'Doors' concert poster advertising tickets selling from $2.60 to $3.50 hung in the centre of our wall with the funky atomic wallpaper.

A giant (pardon the pun) 'Attack of the 50 Foot Woman' poster measures 120cm x 40cms hung with a great retro 'Faster Pussycat!Kill! Kill!' poster

We have some fabulous Batman(Adam West) and Robin(Burt Ward) autographs mounted with photos ready to frame.
