Well, pardon the more-than-usual bad pun, but I ran out of ideas and just wanted to hep everybody to this cool cause as well as nice lil’ artefact as soon as possible: Royal Bobbles‘ limited edition Edgar Allan Poe bobblehead! Only 200 of these babies were made exclusively for Poe Foundation’s Edgar Allan Poe Public Art Project’s Poe Statue Fund – with 100% of the proceeds benefitting the organization. Their goal is to raise $177,000 for the installation of a life-size bronze statue of the Boston-born writer in Poe Square by early 2014.

Available for pick-up from the foundation at Bartevian’s Antique Store at 160 Boylston St., Boston, MA 02116 – Monday through Saturday from 10:30 am to 5:30 pm –  and those not living in Boston can visit the Poe Foundation’s website for orders. The bobblehead cost $50, with $10 postage and handling within the US and $15 to cover international rates.

Also, Royal Bobbles do already carry a different Poe bobblehead, so if you don’t wanna plop down $50 you can check that one out here – and they offer custom bobblehead dolls for less than $150 as well! How cool is that? Perfect gift for weddings, birthdays, record sleeves (oh yeah, baby!), or, you know, something to put on the mantelpiece if you’re a complete egomaniac. Check that one out here.
