Happy Souvenir Sunday!
Each Sunday here at StuckatTheAirport.com we take a look at some of the fun things you can buy at airports for under $10.
This week we picked up a few souvenirs from the upcoming Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics that will be taking place in February.
Turns out you can also buy Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics souvenirs in Seattle, at a pop-up shop in the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) that will stay open through March 7th, 2010.
But what to buy? A good choice would be something that bears the image of Quatchi, the Sasquatch-like creature chosen to be the mascot of this winter’s games. Or of Sumi, Miga, or one of the other sidekick creatures.
But while the USA Store on Sea-Tac’s Concourse C sells t-shirts, sweatshirts and other Olympics souvenirs, there’s not much you can buy here for under $10.
So for Souvenir Sunday we considered making an exception and raising our shopping limit above $10.
Instead, we settled for that old stand-by – chocolates – from this small section of stickers and other small – very small – under $10 items.
Have you found a great souvenir while you were stuck at the airport? If it’s under $10, “of” the city or region and, ideally, a bit offbeat, please snap a photo and send it along. It may show up as next week’s pick for Souvenir Sunday.
