Happy Souvenir Sunday: Chain saws and ticket readers from DTW

There are plenty of cool, under $10 souvenirs to be found in the shops at Detroit  Metropolitan Airport (DTW).

But if you’re after something truly unusual, check out the airport’s on-line auction.

Up for adoption now: a 1990 Ford Econoline van, a variety of other vehicles, and an intriguing assortment of airline ticket printers and readers.
