26/4: Retail Update

The 33 Borough pins and 2 Vancouver bridge pins are available in the London 2012 online shop (they've been there since last week - I'm a bit behind on writing up my news!).

The Museum of London tells me they have the Borough pins in stock and available in their museum shop (call ahead if you're going, just to make sure), and they should be in their online shop this week.

Pins and Things has the Vancouver bridge pins on their website.

14/4: News Update

It's been a bit quiet lately, but the new online shop brought 4 new flowers pins. The inventory has been updated with the new pin details.

The last remaining pictograms are now available and once again, the images on the inventory have been updated.

Some other news items...

There IS a boxed set of the London Borough pins, but the bad news is, they will not be available for retail. There will be 100 sets used as giveaways in a regular and repeating prize draw across the boroughs and as VIP gifts. The 33 individual pins will be available via the online store and other retailers such as the Museum of London. They should also be available locally within each borough in the form of a mail order.

On the sponsor side, there is good progress on the first pin from a Tier 3 sponsor which hopefully will be announced soon.

That's it for now, but more news as and when I have it.

13/4: London 2012 Online Shop Goes Live

The official online shop opened today with clothing and collectibles. The range of pins being stocked is very comprehensive, with 4 new pins available for the first time. The new ones are the 'Autumn Flowers' collection.

Unfortunately the Borough pins and Vancouver/London bridge pins are not there, so let's hope they appear soon.

The online store can be found at
