Happy Souvenir Sunday!
When ever I touch down in an airport, I check out the shops in search of a great “of that city” souvenir.
If I buy, I have just a few rules:
1. No shot glasses or t-shirts.
2. Nothing more than $10.
3. Nothing generic or simply stamped with the city’s name. (See rule 1).
This week: President Obama paraphernalia from the America! shops at Dulles International Airport.
I’m sure you can find these items – and more – in just about every D.C. souvenir shop right now, but there are plenty of folks who have long layovers at Dulles airport and never have a chance to get into town.
While the Barack-in-the-box definitely rings up at more than $10, standing next to the cardboard version of the president for a photo appears to be free.
