I suppose it is comforting to know that I am not the only one who enjoys a good rummage in a museum or gallery gift shop!

Culture Label has collected the cream of the shops from over 70 museums and galleries from around the world all online for gift shops freaks like me!

I am a little nervous to delve more deeply into their trove of wares, as I just clicked into the site and have already spotted these owl handpuppets by Alice Melvin that are a hoot (ahem).

Check out the fab patterns that come with the book. It looks like they are printed on fabric and you just cut and sew.

What would I do with a hand puppet, you ask??? I am sure there would be hours of fun in chasing Bubby around the house with one…don’t you think?

Anyway, back to browsing the goods.
