    Anyone remember fancy paper, have a funny feeling it might creep back in since so many 80s things are.

    The wimmens in our class had then, had smells to them as well. I got one with Mr.T on it from a girl in our class who had a collection. I was happy with that. :)

    I remember one that looked like Ice-Cream. It was usually the more popular girls in the class that played with the paper, while I sulked around and stood in the forbidden grass area for attention :(

    This is weird. We were talking about fancy paper today at lunch in work. I didn't really have much to say then either. I never had any fancy paper. I'm wondering now would my social rank have turned out a bit differently if I had invested in something pony shaped. It seems all the popular girls had it...

    Ah I had loads of it - the smelly ones were the best. Was the Mr T. one that pic that was on t-shirts etc at the time of him holding kittens? :D

    Now there's a blast from the past. I can't remember for the life of me what I used to keep all the paper in :confused:

    I loved it! I used to go into town on saturdays to drama school and I always payed a trip to Roches Stores on the way home, they had the deadliest fancy paper ever. Once I had candy floss scented stuff aw the memories. My USA penpal used to send me some too so I had brilliant stuff, a pad of fruit smelling paper was a fave and also snoopy paper sent from USA. I was also a rubber collector, Erasers that is, I had some mad unusual ones, one was an actual sixed pencil parer, I used to get great craic lending it to people in woodwork to pair their 2Bs LOL. I particularly liked Betsy Clark stuff, she totally disappeared in the 80's. Was only saying today I have a Betsy Clark Doll, a Holly Hobbie & a My Sweet April Doll, sure they must be antiques by now!

    I got loads as birthday presents. I just threw some out recently. Loved the smelly ones! Think it was Strawberry Shortcake that had a scent. I had a special folder for them as well..

    Did anyone ever collect fancy soap? That was what we little wimmins graduated to circa 5th class.


  • Registered Users Posts: 35,954 ✭✭✭✭Larianne


    YES! with the bath salts and the balls that disintegrated in the water! Also, I collected stickers as well. I still have my sticker book. :)

    Ah yes, loved fancy paper and of course smelly erasers as well.

    Someone mentioned Betsy Clark there. Had a doll of her which I buried under coal having cut her head off as I thought she was ugly. A child psychologist would have had a field-day I'm sure!:D

    Think I had the fancy paper in an A4 sized folder it had a patchwork girl on it methinks.

    Had some soaps like the mini ones and soap on a rope can't remember what it was might of been a duck or think it was a bear.

    .

    That sounds like the one I had - it was more of a file thing with compartments in it with some patchwork girl on the front

    Yeah i collected it too, although i wasn't as well up on my collection as the other girls were :( . i remember one girl in particular who not only kept them in a folder but separated them into different categories and put them into separate envelopes in the folder.

    was a year too late for the 80s but had loads of fancy paper, think it may have been 2nd hand from my cousin, I still have it there. Anyone know if they still sell it somewhere? was checking eBay for "fancy paper" and "scented paper" didn't get much
