Sadie Hale Accessories, Beatles Week, Clothing, Music Leave a Comment

There’s a reason why we still see Beatles references everywhere; a reason why Beatles T-shirts still wander the earth on bodies of all ages, and a reason why you won’t find any sorry old Beatles albums in the bargain buckets in HMV: the best selling band in history just never goes out of fashion.
