I was recently in a well known department store overlooking the construction site of the London 2012 Olympic Stadium and I got to thinking what we actually manufacture in the UK now?
The viewing area of the store was laid out as a London 2012 souvenir shop.
I thought with all the Union Jack emblems and London 2012 logos I would purchase a souvenir of the event, so I set myself a task to find something that carries what seems to be a rarity nowadays, something that was Made in England. It could even be made in the UK.
With all the Union Jack flags, the London 2012 images and logos, I thought it would be an easy task but I was disappointed that I could not find a single item that carried a MADE IN ENGLAND – BRITAIN or UK label.
C&S Collectables Direct established in 1992 are proud that we still produce in England, something that is obviously a rarity nowadays. C&S have held a licence to produce Betty Boop figurines since 1995 and after 17 years their highly collectable Wade limited edition Betty Boop figurines are still produced in the historic heart of the Potteries in Stoke -on -Trent, England.
With over 200 different figurines produced to date, our latest offering to our loyal Wade Betty Boop fan base is the fabulous Strike a Pose figure. She carries the famous Wade back stamp and is 5½” high and is produced in a limited edition of only 500 pieces in the iconic pose that every Betty Boop fan will recognise. We are sure she will be a hit with both Betty Boop and Wade collectors.
So if you are looking for that special gift for a mum, a sister, a gran or the man in your life then look no further than this iconic femme fatale of the gift industry.
With all the media coverage of collapsing British industry and high street names closing after years of trading and banks and companies being sold to the highest overseas bidders, Wade Betty Boops continue to be produced in England with pride.
Anyone purchasing a Wade Betty Boop, can buy these great figurines with the knowledge that each one is hand made and hand decorated by craftsmen with a long history behind them in Stoke-on-Trent, England.
