Daft Cars

We sell the Top Gear Book Daft Cars, primarily because my Dad had the car on the front of the book when i was a kid, The Amphicar.

This was in the early 80's when they were already a bit of a rarity.

If I remember rightly there were only 7 working ones in the U.K.

It is easy to see why, Dad was always working on it and after every trip in it, it needed to be worked on again!

It always felt like it was sinking when it was going along in the water, and it actually did a couple of times . You also needed an enormous 4X4 to yank it back out of the water, which is not ideal.

For all of its faults it was great fun and exciting to go out in , not least because none of us including my dad could swim.

It certainly drew a crowd, though because it really did look like a triumph herald that had accidentally driven into the water and was somehow managing to keep going!

From a 3D Santa in an aeroplane to a marvellous

We also have several Modern Toss Cards which have always been a firm favourite in the shop.

If you are in the market for some downright rude Christmas cards with a good dose of Bah Humbug you will never go wrong with Dean Morris cards.

We no longer take internet orders internationally

Sadly, for now,we have decided to no longer automatically accept International orders on the website. The costs are so sporadic that we cannot give our international customers value for money. We also have found that a large proportion of the items that we have sent to Europe have not arrived at their destination.
So if you would like to you would like to buy from us , but do not live in the UK, the islands, highlands or Ireland then please send us an email letting us know what you would like to buy and we will get a price for postage for you. You can then decide if you would like to proceed with the order.
All International orders will now have to be signed for which costs £3.00 and then the weight cost will be calculated on top of that.
Sorry for any inconvenience,or disappointment caused to you.

The 2010 Diaries are here.

The ever popular range of Santoro diaries have arrived for 2010. We have all of them in stock in the shop at the moment, and the most popular ones are on the website.

They are a great design that people come back for year after year.
  1. They last all year because of their removable plastic covering, so you can chuck them in your bag or stuff them in your pocket and they are still in one piece by November
  2. They have a sticker sheet with them so you can mark out important dates.
  3. There is a monthly planner at the beginning of each month so you can see where you are at and what is coming up easily.
  4. The weeks are set out over a double page so there is plenty of room to write what you need to in for each day.
  5. There is a design for everyone, from the London Underground Map through to beautiful illustration work.
