Today is Souvenir Sunday, the day when StuckatTheAirport.com takes a look at cool, locally-themed gifts you can find at airports.
This week’s treats come from the SouveNEAR vending machines recently installed in Terminal A at Newark Liberty International Airport.
SouveNEAR’s vending machines at EWR are filled with t-shirts, jewelry, soaps, pins, patches, t-shirts, candy and a wide variety of other carefully-curated items made by New Jersey and New York artists.
“We believe that travelers feel better buying gifts that support creativity and that are connected to the places they love,” said SouveNEAR co-founder Suzanne Southard, “We hope Newark passengers will feel great about supporting local creativity and taking home something that is really connected to this area.”
Not heading to EWR anytime soon? Don’t fret.
SouveNEAR also has vending machines filled with local artist-made treasures in the Oakland Airport, in Missouri’s Kansas City International Airport, in the lobby of a Marriott hotel in Emeryville, CA and in the Salesforce Transit Center in San Francisco.
The prices for the vending-sized artworks range from $4 to $40 and most everything is also available online.
