How on earth are you expected to keep track of all Melbourne’s essential experiences and mark off what you’ve covered so far in a cute and aesthetic way? Well, you can now get your mitts on a nifty new scratch-off poster to help you do so.
The poster has 49 squares you can scratch away at to reveal a new artwork that honours a definitively Melbourne moment.
The bucket list items range from the more specific, such as ‘laugh at the Melbourne Comedy Festival’ or ‘rock up at AC/DC Lane’, to less definitive things like ‘have more brunches than you can count’, ‘get lost in Melbourne’ or simply ‘attend a gig’.
The poster – designed, printed and handmade locally by Melbourne Buddy – may not capture the spirit of our fair city in the quite the same way UK illustrator Jenni Sparks’ hand-drawn map of the city’s coolest hot-spots does. However it does make a charming gift for someone new in town or a die-hard Melbourne lover, and there is something to the novelty of going at it scratchie-style with a coin. Gotta scratch ‘em all!
The poster is currently on sale for an introductory offer of $39, before the price bumps up to $50. You can purchase it here.
