Souvenir Sunday at San Diego International Airport

Last week, as part of the Arts in the Airport conference held in San Diego, I had a chance to join a formal tour of the art collection and temporary art installations at San Diego International Airport.

Along the way, I took a few moments to poke around for souvenirs to share with you for Souvenir Sunday, the day features inexpensive, local and somewhat offbeat things you can buy at the airport.

I found this cute ship in a bottle –

And this sweet Padres bear –

But my favorite was this whale-shaped travel purse.  A perfect accessory for a night on the town.

Have you found a great souvenir while you were stuck at the airport? If it’s inexpensive, local and somewhat offbeat, please take a moment to snap a photo and send it it along.
If your photo is featured on, you’ll receive a special travel-related souvenir of your own.
