Treacle Market January 2010

Great day at Treacle on Sunday, cold but sunny. Huge turn out as always. We had lots of interest in the wonderful Scrufts collars, turkish Hamam towels and at last we’ve found something for the boys young and old… miniature steam engine Pop Pop boats, which we demonstrated all day.

Pop Pops Galore!

This week we are very excited to have received a wonderful selection of very beautiful little Indian tinplate POP POP boats from a very kind man called Keith. There are all sorts of varieties from tug boats to Broads cruisers, some painted, some hand decorated and some good old silver, all are exquisitely made. We’ve had a little play with them and can’t wait to start selling at Treacle on the 29th January. They come in some wonderfully kitsch boxes. To get a POP POP boat going, you simply fill the pipes with water, place a tiny lit candle on the spoon provided inside the boat, place the boat on water and in a matter of seconds you’ll be pop popping along. Around the globe POP POP’s are also known as Can-Can-boot, Knatterboot, toc-toc, Puf-Puf boat, Poof Poof craft, Phut-Phut, or Pouet-Pouet , we just can’t decide which we like best.
