Ah, small blast from this past summer. Here are two pieces from the Lambretta Jamboree, the US’s largest vintage Lambretta rally. There were only 200 or so made of the pin on the left.
Thanks to Tom C. for these!
Martin was kind enough to send me some more photos of his stupendous scooterswag collection.
And here’s a link to Scooterswag’s first post about his collection.
Here’s a wonderful treasure trove of scooter charms and jewelry.
The links are in order of top to bottom in the links below.
Here’s call out to my friend Lin in Brighton, proprietess of Soul Jewellery.co.uk.
(Hi Lin! It’s Tracy from Portland!)
(Thanks to Julie G. for all these great finds.)
He’s a very generous sheep on a scooter though! In this picture only kids book our sheep shaves off his own wool, dyes it and then has it made into a sweater for a friend. Drawn by illustrator Sylvia Van Ommen. An extreme cuteness factor of 10.
Thanks to Cassie M. for this find!
Of course not all sheep are so willing to give up their wool. For your viewing pleasure I give you the story of Shrek the Sheep:
These are better made than a lot of other “third world” models – Vietbodge anyone? And you can own one of these for Â£20.13. They measure 11 cm long, 3 cm wide and 6.5 cm tall.
Thanks to Julie G. for this find.
Christine Berrie is a Scottish artist and illustrator and has a real knack for detailed drawings fetishizing technology. In this print she captured the vast assortment of vintage Vespas, Lambrettas and other motorized bikes (25 to be exact) she sees on the streets of London.
This print comes in two sizes. 14″ X 11″ at $50 in an limited quantity of 500 and in 20″ X 16″ at $200 in an edition of 50 prints.
Thanks to Tim T. for this great find!
