Scooter Collector items

Thanks to Gretchen for tipping me of to these cute scooter items!
The first is some bright fabric with scooters on it.

The fabric is for sale at Repro Depot, a great place to find unusual and retro-inspired fabric. At this moment it is temporarily sold out, but retails fro $9.95/ half yard. I'm not sure what I would make of it, ut it might be a fun fabric to line a coat or purse.

The second item comes from Gwen Stefani's Harajuku Lovers clothing line.

It is one of many items that are in the Ready Steady theme which have cartoon girls riding scooters. There are several styles of shirts as well as children's clothing items. See the various items here. Browse the site for mini-purses and baby gear with the theme, too.

Gretchen is entered into the current contest! If you are interested in entering,send me pics of some cool collectibles that you have found. But, do it by Sept. 1st as that is the deadline.

Oh and BTW, if you are interested in learning more about the Harajuku area f Japan where Stefani takes her cues, read Style Deficit Disorder by Tiffany Godoy. I found it very interesting!
