There are probably going to be a few extra tourists in London this year, what with that thing called the Olympics 2012 going on. The London money machine must be humming with activity as the capital gears up to
fleece… cajole…encourage those lucky visitors to spend, spend, spend as they watch their favourite athlete work their hearts out for their country.
It seems that one wheeze the merchandise team has come up with is to sell authentic London signs, like the ones outside the underground stations, as well as other well known London signage to Joe Public. Not just any old stuff though, this will be 100% exactly the same as the original because it will be made by the same company.
A London Underground Silhouette Sign, such as you see outside most stations is on offer for a mere £645.00. It’s made of three enamel plates in an aluminium frame, hand built and screen printed with the station name on the front. It’s all top quality gear, mate. The thing will take 4 weeks to make, mind you, so if you’re thinking of taking it home to Arkansas in the summer you’d better start planning now. And good luck with the carry on security check at the airport. Oh and music lovers might be interested to know you can also buy street name plaques from the same company.
Very authentic and very cool for the dorm wall. £475.00 a pop, and wot a bargain.
