It's just a gimmick...and a quite clever one, at that. They also have tinned fears and whatnot, that are actually candies. They're raising money, and they've found an area where people are willing to laugh and buy a quirky gift for a friend. And it seems to be doing well.

This sounds like stuff you'd find in the Harry Potter stories. Is JKRowling involved?

They can, at least some of their stuff, through FireBox.

I've been in contact with them through email over the past week and I couldn't convince them to ship to the US. :\

Have a friend in the UK buy them, then have them ship it to you.

Is Yawkey Way like Yancy Street? Ben Grimm (The Thing from the comic book team - Fantastic Four -) frequently refered back to Yancy Street.
