Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Did I really buy an expensive Iron Man cookie jar?

Anyone reading here regularly (or who knows me) will know I have no time for any sort of branded crap, ‘designer label’ goods, or souvenirs/collectibles which carry prices that prove “A fool and their money are soon parted”.

So why did I bring home a £40 Iron Man ‘official’ cookie jar, available today, in stock, from Amazon for a mere £56, or other online sellers for between £16 and £25 – but all with ‘No stock available’ status. (That’s what was online the day I wrote this post, so will change).

Well, the answer should be fairly obvious – a sale!

Knowing there was a run taking place in Glasgow city centre (so loads of streets closed to traffic), plus the added disruption and delay of more nonsense bringing crowds to Parkhead, I left home really early to get to Kelvingrove for the 3 pm organ recital.

This meant I arrived early, and decided to have a wander around the museum shops.

One was having a SALE!

So, that’s how I came to have a £40 cookie jar – for which I only paid £5. (Which is all I’d pay for a cookie jar).

I have to give special mention to a claim on the box, which may not be clear in the oblique view above…


Here’s plain shot.

Have to be honest – NOT going to test that one.

This also gives me the chance to include a mention for a couple of favourites who are no longer with us.

Iron Man’s creator, and Grumpy Cat, seen together not all that long ago.
