Rococo Chocolates is a London chocolatier. They’ve labeled this a “Lambretta” but it’s a bit too generic odd scoot to identify. In any case, Santa’s clearly ditched his trusty sleigh. Still those reindeer are so high maintenance (drama, drama, drama) he may be better off. It’s hand painted dark chocolate (gorgeous!) and costs Â£25.00. And impressive stocking stuffer indeed! And in my humble opinion, far too pretty to eat.

There have been quite a few Nicole Miller scooter things that have popped up over the years. Clearly this designer has a soft spot for sleek scooters. I thought I’d seen most of the Nicole Miller scooter things and even posted about one that could be found easily at the time. But this wall art is new to me. I saw it in an eBay auction and thought it definitely qualifies as “rare swag.”
2011 has to be better, right? Here’s hopin’. Only the cover of this calendar features the crabby Maxine on her scooter. But I spotted it in Walgreens for less than $5 and it’s good for 16 months of whining.

I can’t help but think the guy looks more impressed with his package than does the lady. But maybe that’s just my overactive imagination. You can buy this print from the “Vintage Magazine Company” on Amazon.com. And if you search under “Lambretta Art Print” or “Vespa Art Print” in Amazon you can see all of the different scooter prints they offer. It looks like the size of the advertising will be slightly larger than when it was published. For example this magazine cover is 11 x 14″ and printed on thick art card. I am curious about the quality so if any of you order from this company, let us know how it comes out.
