Buy A Piece Of The Pope's Red Carpet
Last week the Pope went on a whirlwind tour through the United Kingdom, the first papal visit in decades. Paul Fraser Collectibles has an intriguing memento of the occasion, the red carpet touched by the papal shoes after he performed mass at Westminster Cathedral. The Pope spent 12 minutes on this carpet as he was greeted by 2,500 young Catholics and he blessed a candle stand as a symbol for the Catholic youth. Instead of marketing the carpet as a single entity, the company is selling ½" x ½" squares of the carpet for £29.97 each. 10 percent of the proceeds will be donated to the Westminster Cathedral Charity toward the upkeep of the cathedral.
