These stamps from Guinea Bissau were issued in 2008 and feature both vintage and modern Vespas as well as an assortment of Odd Scoots like the Peugeot (labeled incorrectly as a Vespa) and a Rumi. And they’re pretty easy to find using the Google thingamabob. Prices seem to be well under $10 per sheet.
Hello Lucky! is a great stationery designer. We’ve featured several of their cards and wrapping paper over the years. Now they have a London-centric theme with lots of lovely little letterpressed scooters. There are greeting cards, holiday cards and announcements all done in several color schemes. I just wish I was moving to London right now so I would have a reason to order some!
Here we have an insanely cool oil painting of a space girl with an alien riding bitch on her fenderlight (!) Vespa. The artist is Kathy Staico Schorr and the size is 17 1/2″ x 17 1/2″ (43.18 x 43.18 cm) framed. Contact the gallery for pricing and shipping information. I hope this one goes to a good home.
I spotted this card in Bed Bath & Beyond and snatched it up in case yet another of my scooterist friends decides to tie the knot. It’s made by avantipress.com but it’s not available on their site. The bride’s dress is covered in a pretty white glitter.
Many of you have probably already seen one or two photos of this incredible work of art, but finding more photos of its construction spurred me to post about it. Portuguese craftsman Carlos Alberto fashioned his Vespa from laminated wood. Taking a Vespa which had fallen into complete disrepair, he used woodcraft techniques to create a completely new body for it. The main frame of the scooter is fashioned from steam bent and laminated veneers on which the gorgeously carved body work hangs. Even the package tray and seat are made from wood!
I would gladly trade in a top hat or a thimble for a scooter while I pass “Go.” These models are made of resin with an “antiqued silver metallic finish. The Vespa measures in at 8.5″ x 4″ x 6” and is $14.95. And the roadster measures in at 4â€ by 7â€ by 2â€ and is $9.95.
Target has introduced a new children’s bedding collection and yes, it does feature scooters or perhaps moped-ish scooter-like objects. Pieces include sheet sets, quilts, duvets, valances and window panels and prices range from $16.99 to $69.99.
