First I had to look up what “Vellutata” meant. Turns out it’s Italian and means “velvety.” There’s a rich sauce called “Vellutata.”
Next I went on the hunt for scooter cart. Turns out this line of HK seems to only be available to the Europeans. (Hisss!) but you can order the cart from them on the American Amazon website for between £5.99 to $15.
So what about the Hello Kitty remote control toy featuring a (gasp!) boyfriend? Well my dear friends, I think it’s also part of the “Vellutata” line but it’ll have to be considered “Rare Swag” for now as I try to find an online source.
Here’s a whole slew of scooter goodness for you from the online UK retailer “Not On The High Street.” They have a selective application process for sellers and want only the unique and well-made. They are especially interested in supporting small British businesses — both designers and manufacturers. And it’s easy ordering for us Yanks.
I especially like the scooter girl wallets/clutches and the two-wheel sprint scarf featuring both bicycles and Vespas.
The first three photos feature the chefs made by Benzara. They are made out of “polystone” and cost around $39.95 for the set. I wasn’t able to find the trio in a set but now you know what to look for.
The other chefs are made by Bon Appetit and are a bit trickier to find.
Speaking of tricks, I like to use Google Alerts as well as eBay Saved Searches to hunt down treasures.
Well darn it anyway. Lost an eBay auction for this ornament so I can’t tell you who made it or find a source for everyone to get their own. Anybody have any hints? These would make incredible wedding favors and/or table decorations for weddings.
Scooterpatch.com (in the bright orange banner under our own banner) has introduced a new kind of patch for this scooter rally season. Now you can choose from embroidered or woven patches. What’s the difference? Embroidered patches are sewn of course. And it’s the thread gives the images on patches a nice 3D quality. But you are limited to how small you can make lettering and other details.
Woven patches are flat and are made on an electronic loom so a much finer thread can be used which lets you do much smaller details like 1/8″ tall lettering or even smaller. Take a look at the samples above. Then think of the brand and size labels in your clothing. Now you’ve got the idea.
Jeff Bass, owner of scooterpatch.com, describes it this way: “Embroidery is analog and woven is digital.”
Be sure to peruse their site to see more examples, see the other goodies they can make and get a special ScooterSwag offer .
Not only is she clearly a mod but she has a pet cat which is a very progressive pet for a mouse to have … don’t you think?
The first photo shows Minnie on a remote control scooter, the second photo shows a jigsaw puzzle with her beau Mickey and the third is Minnie on a smaller scooter toy with lots of accessories and said cat.
The RC scooter seems to be only available in Europe while the puzzle falls into the category of “rare swag” as I didn’t find a good online source for it. Try searching “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Scooter 35pc Jigsaw Puzzle.” The smaller toy scooter is more widely available.
Love the name of Minnie’s line of toys — “Bow-tique” !
Scooters show up a lot in Lulu’s accessories. I love shopping and I love scooters but the two are often hard to combine unless you have a big luggage rack and lots of bungies ; ) This purse can be worn as a shoulder or cross-body bag and will set you back £295.00.
