Vintage Homepride Fred is a top hit at yay retro!

Homepride Fred is in the news being the biggest hit of the week on the yay retro! website.  Our online vintage shop is visited by many, many 1000s of people a week and it seems Fred is the man people are looking for! Fred the flour shaker was invented by a marketing team back in the 60s/70s to promote the Homepride company. He went on to be on the label of not only their flour but cook-in sauces too.  Fred flour shakers, storage jars and spice racks were all made in plastic by Spillers and Airfix for the company.  A range of toy Fred baking sets were also made for children, maybe you had one?
