A Rare Bit O’Swag:
Custom Scooter Figurines

Gas Mask Vespa Scooter Dead Pool Figurines Custom Art

We’ve featured a figurine of the character Dead Pool on ScooterSwag before. These however are custom made one-off figurines made by hobbists/artists. Does anyone know if the gas masked fellow is based on any comic book character?

A real kickstarter!

The Scooter Diaries Ronald Bowman

I came across a Kickstarter campaign on the blog “Mod Scene Weekly” and I want to see this book get made! They have less than two days to meet their goal.

What’s it about? It’s “an epic adventure romance through Latin America on a scooter during a time when such a journey was virtually unheard of.” And I gotta say the romance part sounds great! But just the fantastic photos alone would make this book worth it.

Visit here to learn more and watch the terrific book trailer. And then lay down some dough!

Just don’t get a flat tire!

Snoopy Snowman Penguin Scooter Vespa Christmas Inflatables Yard Art

Hooray! The Christmas Scooter inflatables are here! In fact we’ve only ever featured one inflatable here before at ScooterSwag. They were these scooter riding sock monkeys . But now we have Snoppy and a snowman (and penguin). The photo of the Snoopy was shot at a Lowe’s Home Improvement store but you can also order him for $89 online here .

The much larger snowman is available at Bed Bath & Beyond for $120 here .

Thanks to Tom C. for the Snoopy find!

Don’t forget about Etsy!

Etsy Scooter Vespa Lambretta Crafts Collectibles

I’d be the first to admit I’ve made fun of the craft site Etsy and loved calling it “Regretsy.” But I gotta give them credit. There is a lot of great stuff on there and it keeps getting better. I’ve even ordered from them. So type in “scooter” or “Vespa” or “Lambretta” and see what comes up for you.

For example for you knitters there’s this downloadable scooter sweater pattern for just $2:

Lullaby Linen Vespa Scooter Kids Bedding Comforter Blanket Sheets

We featured this scooter fabric last year and now someone has thankfully gone to the trouble of making it into adorable bedding. But (sigh) it’s not cheap. Prices range from $70.40 (USD) for a cushion to $330 for a Double Quilt Cover or Duvet. And those are sale prices apparently. To see all the sizes available visit this Australian site .

Thanks to Cassie M. for this find!

Grate Britain Crackers

The Fine Cheese Company Crackers Parmigiano-Reggiano Scooter Vespa

30 month old Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. And a scooter. Can it get any better? This is a cracker flavor (flavour?) from the fine folks at the UK’s Fine Cheese Company. How do I know they’re fine folks? They make cheese.

This bag is a very reasonable £1.69 on their site .

Thanks to Alice D. for this find!
