    I was only saying few months ago to my little brother, do you remember our polyvelts? I thought it was just a Liverpool fashion statement cos noone over in Lincolnshire remember them!! Thank goodness someone else in the world does!! I would love a new pair...I was 8 maybe when I got my brown pair. I think my brother had grey ones. Happy Memories!! Bunty xx
