This Week’s Rare Bit O’Swag:
Scooter Postage Stamps

These stamps from Guinea Bissau were issued in 2008 and feature both vintage and modern Vespas as well as an assortment of Odd Scoots like the Peugeot (labeled incorrectly as a Vespa) and a Rumi. And they’re pretty easy to find using the Google thingamabob. Prices seem to be well under $10 per sheet.

Thanks to Julie G. for this find!

And no scooter was stirring . . .

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.
