Just wanted to remind people (once again) that the 80's are hot....

Here's a video from one of my favorite 80's bands -- Duran Duran.  Sure wish I had some of those Duran Duran buttons I purchased at the county fair in 1985.  (Used to wear them on my jacket)  FYI:  A reader told me that the word "badge" would be an important word to include in the title in case a person from the UK is browsing eBay.

FYI:  When I typed "Duran Duran buttons" into the eBay search box, there were only 107 results.  If you have a cool one, list it now!

I also wish I had the white polka dotted Swatch I purchased in 1985.   Speaking of Swatches.....check out this awesome Keith Haring watch that went for a pretty, pretty penny.  Wow!!

In case this link expires, this Swatch went for $1,200.  Average price for the search term "Swatch Watch" (according to Terapeak)?  About $45.  Not bad.....


  1. Yes, I remember the 80's, but I must admit, I was not a fan of Duran Duran or the whole British New Wave, for that matter. (I was more into Michael Jackson, Madonna, Hall & Oates).

    When listing those buttons, be sure to use the word "badge," which is what they're also known as (in the UK).

  2. Great tip! FYI: Do you know about "Live From Daryl's House"? Daryl Hall invites musicians friends over to his pad and jams with them in his living room. Very interesting concept! Here's the link: http://www.livefromdarylshouse.com/
