The Dowager Countess of Grantham must be shaking in her knickers!
We are, at least!
It's been announced that merchandise and clothing from the popular British show Downton Abbey will finally be released for all those desperate Downtoners looking for a piece of the show.
Now that the show is a bonafide hit in the States, NBC Universal has acquired the rights to release a Downton brand of products including clothing from the show (we're thinking long arm gloves and fur coats) and home furnishings (throw pillows and silver teapots??).
The show's executive producer, Gareth Neame confirmed the news, saying:
"We'll be working across an entire range of products coming out this year. From fashion, apparel and homeware and furniture to wallpapers, beauty products and stationary."
But, the real question is, will these items come with our very own Mr. Carson to serve us?? Inquiring minds want to know!
