Postcard Fridge Magnets

Currently decorating my fridge are postcards from Malta, USA, Germany and deepest darkest Wiltshire!

Monopole Magnets – myth becomes reality

  We have had a lot of requests in the last 2-3 months for monopole magnets. It’s time to debunk some psuedo-science. There is NO SUCH THING!
