Scooter Ornament Week Continues!
Very Pink Vespa

And they just keep coming . . .
Here we have an adorable bright pink scooter that looks highly detailed and seems like a substantial size based on the other ornaments it was hanging next to in the photo. $12.00 at Macys.

Thanks to Tammy D. for this great find and the great photos.

Scooter Ornament Week Continues!
Glitterlicious Vespa

Turns out that 2011 has been a bumper crop of scooter Christmas ornaments. Ornament Week was supposed to be last just that long — one week. But they just keep coming. Here’s an adorable sparkler from Pier One Imports. It costs just $5.95 and measures 1.50″W x 5″D x 4″H.

This reminds me a lot of how I used to set up my 1960 Vespa VBA for Christmas. I have a saddle seat and a buddy seat. On the buddy seat I would bungie a little 2.5 foot aluminum Christmas tree. Then on went a string or two of battery-powered LED lights. It took me a couple of years of trial and error to get it all to stay on safely even in winds but it was a glorious sight.

Thanks to both Polianarchy and Phaedra for the photos and find.

Scooter Ornament Week:
Blue Fenderlight Vespa

Here’s a gorgeously detailed ornament at a low price of £4.99. Or if you’re in the States and near a Cost Plus World Market, you can get two for $12 and in three different colors. I am not sure if these are the same as the top photo which looks better painted but I haven’t been to Cost Plus to inspect for myself. Still, SCOOTER ORNAMENTS!

Thanks to Aleks H. for the Cost Plus Find and photo!

Scooter Ornament Week:
Red Vespa Scooter

Happy Holidays! I am going to be as guilty as the retailers and start shoving Christmas down your throats. (At least I waited until after Thanksgiving though, right?) So this week I will feature a different scooter ornament for your tree . . . everyday!

First up is this glass ornament that measures 2.5″ tall and 3.75″ wide. It’s $12.99.

This Week’s Rare Bit O’Swag:
Santa on a Snow Scooter

Some will decry my posting of this toy as it’s not technically a scooter scooter but it’s so weird and wacky I couldn’t resist. Battery operated and made in Japan, these can be found on eBay and usually go for $100 or more depending on condition.

Thanks to Julie G. for this find!

PS: Here is a similar toy featuring Snoopy as an astronaut:
