Souvenir Sunday at New Orleans International Airport

It’s Souvenir Sunday – the day we take a look at some of the fun, inexpensive and locally-linked items for sale at airports.

This week’s souvenirs come to us from the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport, courtesy of Christopher Shaberg, author of The Textual Life of Airports: Reading the Culture of Flight

Christopher lives in New Orleans and sent out a tweet that he was heading to the airport to pick up some visiting family members. I asked him to poke around for fun souvenirs.

Here are just a few of the snaps he sent.

As a thank-you, I’ll be sending Christopher a travel souvenir.

Want one too?

Next time you’re at an airport, take some photos of souvenirs that are fun, inexpensive (about $10) and “of” the city or regiona you’re visiting. Send them along and, if they’re featured on Souvenir Sunday, I’ll send you a travel souvenir.
