Souvenir Sunday at Louisville International Airport

On Souvenir Sunday we like to take a look at some of the fun, inexpensive and locally-themed items you can pick up when you’re stuck at the airport.

This week’s treats come from Louisville International Airport(SDF), where we found Kentucky Bluegrass and all manner of candies made with a touch of bourbon.

Louisville is also the home of the factory that makes the Louisville slugger bats, and we found these cute little pink Louisville Slugger mitts for sale at the airport as well.

Do you poke around the shops when you’re stuck at the airport? If you find a souvenir that’s fun, offbeat and “of” the city or region you’re in, please snap a photo and send it to StuckatTheAirport.com.

If your souvenir is featured on Souvenir Sunday, we’ll send you a fun travel souvenir.

Greetings from Louisville International Airport

There are plenty of great souvenirs to buy at Kentucky’s Louisville International Airport, and I’ll share more of my finds on Snack Saturday or Souvenir Sunday.

But after a long day of flying I only have time to share this one great find.

It will become part of Stuck at the Airport’s project to document the many ways chocolate ‘poop’ is sold to souvenir-seeking travelers at airports around the world.

Souvenir Sunday at LAX

It’s Souvenir Sunday – the day we take a look at some of the fun and inexpensive things you can buy when you’re stuck at the airport. This week’s treasures come from the new Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT) at Los Angeles International Airport.

While flights are now arriving and departing from the swanky new terminal and the duty free shops selling cosmetics and liquor are open, many other retail and dining outlets won’t open till later in October.

One shop that is open: Sanrio Surprises. So no one has to go home without some Hello Kitty-related items.
