This charming traffic scene makes me want to hop on a plane right now and smell all the lovely exhaust. The illustrator is Peter Donnelly and this artwork can be purchased as an unframed or framed art print or on a stretched canvas in assorted sizes. You can also buy it on greeting cards or as iPhone/iPod cases or skins. Prices range from $12.00 for a set of 3 cards to $150.00 for a 24″ x 35″ stretched canvas.
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 â€” 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.
(Note the flower pattern in the hubcaps!)
Don’t like orange? No worries. Whisker Graphics has customizable print on demand and you can get labels, tags, business cards, stationery, etc. with this scooter on different colored paper stocks. Their prices are pretty reasonable so go nuts.
The modern Vespa lovers get a fair shake at the swag today. Paper-source.com has all kinds of customizable stamps and stationery with a nice 2-tone (but not 2-stroke) scooter. Perfect for wedding invitations or garden party invites.(Never been to a garden party. Here’s hoping.)
Last year I got all excited when I found a Triumph Tigress-esque valentine. Well it turns out I am a very lucky girl. Because a designer at Pottery Barn was probably one of the people I was bidding against on eBay. They feature the same valentine on a $12 card set, in a $20 plastic tumbler set, a $26 melanine plate set, in a paper heart garland and in a floor puzzle (available only in the stores.) Here’s a buying tip – if you just want the scooter plate, go to the stores and grab one. They’re just $6.50 and display wonderfully. The folks at my local store said everything would go on sale the week before Valentine’s Day.
