Having bought a rather wonderful picnic chest for the Camper Van, the plan had been to get a sticker from each place that we went (or had been) and to assemble a souvenir montage.
Like a lot of my 'brilliant' plans, it did not work as well as planned. Finding stickers was nigh on impossible, fridge magnets ... yes, coasters ... yes, stickers .... No!
Nowhere was this weirder than the New Forest where despite numerous shops and towns, no stickerage. It was only in Swanage (after an unsuccessful search) that I learned that the company that used to do them for the various towns and places had ceased trading, whilst the company that took over only respond to orders for a minimum of 10,000.
But not one to give up, I trawled the internet for pictures of posters, images, logos, emblems and the like for all the destinations, then printed, laminated and glued. And tada .......

Including the sides we have:
Bournemoth, Swanage, Moors Valley, Derbyshire Dales, Garmisch Partenkirchen, Paris, New Forest, France, Germany, Belguim, Isle of Wight, Malvern, Western-super-Mare and the Wye Valley. There's also the Mystery Machine "That's so Dub" and a VW parts sticker and the souvenir Sheriffs Badge from this years T4 Forum get together.
