Tea Stirrers of the World

I have the world's largest collection of disposable plastic tea stirrers. The whole collection is currently being catalogued and photographed but you can see a few examples below. If you come across any disposable plastic tea stirrers on your travels please do get in touch.

'Tribal' is the only word I can think of to describe this recent eBay purchase. How she ended up with the seller is still a mystery.

Lovely surprise to find this jazzy little number while recently flying with @voegoloficial from Rio to São Paulo. Here she is placed on an extract from Roald Dahl's short story 'A Piece of Cake' which is about his adventures in the RAF. #teastirrersoftheworld
