Wow, what’s that saying about waiting for buses? Yes, it’s another Tat Trek post, not too long after the last one – ‘cos you love ’em so much. Here we go with another look at an item from my collection of kitsch.
Item: Spice Girls Mug
Description: your common or garden drinking mug, featuring pictures of girl power legends, the Spice Girls.
Cost: 2 for £1!
Bought: from Shotton (new tat capital?)
Reason for buying: I indulged in the two for a quid offer so I could give one to my daughter and keep one for myself. Plus I actually think that the Spice Girls were a great pop band.
I couldn’t resist picking up these mugs, especially at the price. The Spice Girls might seem a bit naff, hence the immediate induction into the Collection de Tat, but to be fair I thought they were pretty good. They had some genuinely good pop songs and were a lot of fun. On the whole much better than all that Britpop crap from the time.
Plus the best example to illustrate how fantastic the Spice Girls were is this video. Now tell me that’s not awesome.
And my daughter likes them, so it was smiles all round.
Despite my justifying my Spice Girls love here, the novelty value of these cheap mugs makes them another fabulous find for Tat Trek. Hope you enjoy!
