Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

My friend Andrew and I have a longstanding tradition / competition that whenever one of us goes on vacation, the goal is to purchase the tackiest, ugliest, tsatske souvenir that you can possibly find for less than $10 as a gift for each other. In fact, the cheaper and grosser the better. As a result, each of us has quite a little collection of stuff from around the world that belongs in a Ripley's Museum. So....When I was in New Orleans last month, it was none too difficult to buy Andrew his souvenir in the French Quarter, where I found such a wealth of ugly tsatske on the cheap, that decisions were hard to make. After much careful deliberation, I came home and presented him with an alligator foot key ring for a mere $.99. So, with that in mind, check this out, because it takes "ewwww" to a whole new level.

    Weird!

    My fiance and I collect cheap, takcy shot glasses. We have one from Miami that has two pigs doing it "piggy style" that says "Makin' Bacon in Miami Beach".

    ACW: I had a college roommate who collected souvenir salt and pepper shaker sets. She amassed quite a collection over time. I was happy to contribute the "Hershey Kiss" set from Hershey, PA, and a "Plymouth Rock" set from MA.

    Maktaaq: I love you too sweetie! Did you check out some of the other items on the site??!! It's like the Mutter Museum of taxidermy. Be careful though - they may have actual hamster products for sale. ick.
