Yes, it's trivial, but after last year's experience of boiling to death in France, we are going on a traditional bucket and spade holiday to Norfolk this year (bet it bloody rains the whole fortnight but that's another story...) and wanted a traditional bucket and spade set - you know, the tin bucket with bright printed seaside scenes on it and a wood and tin spade. Do such things exist anymore? And if so, where can I get one? TIA all

I think Hawkin used to do them - but I can't see them on their site at the moment.

Yes, I remember them in Hawkin. Also try Tridias

I remembered the Hawkin one too, fat lot of use, eh. The Tridias website has been undergoing renovation for months now. I thought Letterbox might have done them but I just looked and can't see any sign. I wonder if they fall foul of some safety law?

OK - don't get too excited because theres no seaside scenes on them - but how about these spades, shovels and pails ...
