Here is a reproduction metal sign for you Cushman fans out there. Original signs also come up on eBay now and then.

Thought you’d enjoy seeing my Christmas decorations this year. I haven’t put up a tree for several years and was determined to this year. And for the first time I actually did a “scooter only” tree. I was shocked to discover that I have twenty-eight (28!) scooter Christmas ornaments. They include mostly Santas but also a mouse, a snowman, as well as some angels I made from a chocolate mold with Plaster of Paris. Clearly I have an illness.
Merry Christmas everyone!
Hopefully (since it’s the busy holiday season) very few of you noticed that ScooterSwag was down for the last couple of days. The site was moved to a different server and some techy glitches crept up. Thanks to Tim and Dreamhost Tech Gary for their help!.
Merry Christmas Eve Scooter Swaggers!
On top, here’s a vintage Russian Christmas card just for you. The Russian Santa Claus is called “Ded Moroz” or “Grandfather Frost”. Both sound ominous to me.
The second card features the fairly rare Peugeot scooter as Santa’s transport. Note that a joyful reindeer is also getting a lift.
Spotted in a discount department store, this backpack has it all â€” a scooter, a cat and lots and lots of sparkles. If you live in Florida, you may be able to get your paws on one.
Thanks to Madeline G. for this find!
The famous World War II poster “Keep Calm and Carry On” was actually never released to the British public. But it’s a popular icon now. Here it is in a redux for scooterists. Available in a variety of colors in a 5″ x 7″ size at $8, an 8 X 10″ size at $10, and a 13″ X 19″ size at $15.95. (Buy 3 and get one free.)
Thanks to the fab blog Mod Culture for this find.
We’ve posted about “I See By My Outfit” by Peter Beagle before. It’s about two beatniks who go cross country on Heinkels and it’s a great read. It’s easy to find a reprint but not so easy to find the more vintage paperback copies with the scooters on the cover art. Here are two of the better examples.
