Your own blue plaque.

Your house may not be on a historical registry of any kind, but that does not mean it doesn’t deserve a plaque of its own. At £14 including the customizable numbers, this is an affordable accessory. These only seem to be available on eBay right now so don’t dilly dally.

The whole subject of the world famous English Heritage blue plaques got me to their site where I searched in vain for something scootery or mod to post about. Apparently not even Carnaby Street deserves a nod. Grumble.

This Week’s Rare Bit O’Swag:
Maple Town Toy Scooter

If you like bunnies on scooters (and who doesn’t?) be on the look out for the “Maple Town Stories” toy sets and in particular Papa Rabbit’s scooter. Airing in Japan and parts of Europe in the late 1980s, Maple Town was an anime series about a small utopian city of rabbits and bears. Below is a link for a playground furniture set and the scooter. The rabbits can be had on the same site in a separate listing.
