How Much Royal Wedding Crap Can One London Souvenir Shop Hold?
We're under four weeks away from the Royal Wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton, and yet it's funny how long we've already been over it. Of course the souvenir shops of London are just revving up and accepting pallet after pallet of crap souvenirs made in China, all to unload for 300% their wholesale price on tourists with royal stars in their eyes.
For research's sake, and also to slake our curiosity, we stopped into a tiny souvenir shop near the Marble Arch tube stop to see exactly what sort of random items now bear the royal couple's faces, and exactly how much of this stuff they've managed to stock. Prepare to be shocked.
The challenge: photograph ever tidbit of Royal Wedding memorabilia, no matter how ridiculous, inside this single souvenir shop. Sadly we didn't run into a few things we hoped to, like printed baby onesies, fake wedding invitations and snowglobes. But they do have three more weeks...
So. Anyone for a £1.99 sticker?
