I started my Beatrix Potter Figurine collection on my first trip to England in 1973. I also bought a complete set of the books that Beatrix Potter wrote and illustrated. We knew about this shop in Gloucester and were determined to visit it while we were in Gloucester 41 years after I started my collection.
This shop had a lot of fun displays filled with memorabilia.
Here is Pigling Bland. The book to the right of Pigling Bland is Little Pig Robinson and when Josh was a little guy he figured out that this book was one of the longest in the series so he’d ask to have that one as his bedtime story knowing sleep would be delayed just a tad longer.
Of course Peter Rabbit is the most recognized of Beatrix Potter’s beloved characters.
Have you read Beatrix Potter’s books? Who is your favorite character?
