A whole lot of 70s browns! This is Beepa the Owl– a Telecom money box that would have been placed by every domestic telephone in Australia. Twenty cents for a local call, a whole lot of 20c for an international call – to be place in Beepa for payment. Beepa still has his original stopper [notice that it is 20 cent-sized] so he’s still good to use as a moneybox.
The cassette case holds twenty cassettes– and it’s made of authentic 70s vinyl. The cassette holder inside is removable – so it can be used as a rather smart [albeit small] suitcase. The handle, hinges and front clasp are all in good working order – this is one smart case!
The Nancy Drew book “The Clue of the Tapping Heels” is number 16 in the series – and this version also hails from the 70s. If you are interested in this collection I will throw in Nancy Drew free.
Beepa and the cassette case are for sale: $AUD25
