Finally a piece of dolphin merchandise I like

This town is groaning under the weight of dolphin merchandise.  Dolphin merchandise is very popular here, just not with me. I've toyed with the idea of setting up a museum of truly dreadful dolphin merchandise along the lines of the Mangaweka Shell Museum or the Bluff Paua Shell House but a) I suspect the only people who'd visit and appreciate it would be my family and friends, b) the exhibits would be far too easy to collect and I need a bigger challenge and c) I'm starting to really enjoy myself here and don't want to get drummed out of town.

I have however finally found a piece of dolphin merchandise I like, but it wasn't in Mandurah.  A while back I found the card above in a shop in Perth.  That shop has just gone into receivership.  That figures.


  1. have you considered going into business with paua covered dolphins ;)

  2. Brilliant. I'll sell them in my museum shop.
