london tat

i love the touristy shops that sell all manner of london tat.

look at these bad boys...
i especially like the people's princess plate and the one next to it... the royal princes.

these shops stock untold bus souvenirs too
it really is a london icon

of course in the run up to the royal wedding, a lot of quality merchandise
is now on the market for the discerning collector... though i have yet to find any.
i like that this picture frame has the words
"catherine using the ring of his late mother" 
at the bottom of it. what a nice touch.

this is a gem too
i like the cut-out headshots which i think are from different photos.
the metalwork around the frame is pretty special too. i love the perspective used 
on the bus and the black cab.

unfortunately i'll be out of the country on the day of the royal wedding
so i had to rsvp that i will not be attending.

    can you please, please tell me where you spotted these plates. I have been after this particular plate for ages only to be told that they have sold out everywhere. i can't understand why you call this quality merchandise "tat", it must be some of your cockerney rhyming slang for treasure.
