George Bush Intercontinental Airport

Souvenir Sunday at Houston’s Bush Intercontinental Airport

Etsy at an airport? ¬†We’re used to finding Etsy artists and their wares on line. But there’s an Etsy shop filled with Texas-made treasures inside the new United terminal at George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston.

And since it is Souvenir Sunday – the day we look some of the fun, inexpensive and locally-themed items you can buy at airports – here are some more snaps of items I spotted at IAH during a recent visit.


(Why is this flavor of Skinny Pop not sold in my town??)

And… (bonus!) here’s the Souvenir Sunday pick from IAH from my last time through:

It’s Souvenir Sunday – the day Stuck at the Airport takes a look at the fun, inexpensive and locally-themed treasures you can find when you’re stuck at the airport.

This week’s treat comes from George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH), where we spotted this Hello Kitty doll wearing a cute little Texas Longhorns t-shirt.

The only thing cuter was this t-shirt designed for real dolls:


Jerky store at George Bush Intercontinental Airport


By rights, this should wait for Snack Saturday, but here you go:

The Texas Trail Boss Jerky store, a specialty shop selling all sorts of – you guessed it – jerky meats, has opened at Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH).

Located in Terminal A, the shop stocks jerky made from turkey, beef, pork and bison (What? No salmon jerky?) in a variety of flavors, including spicy, original, garlic and others.

As someone who doesn’t eat meat – let alone jerky – not sure I can give an authentic Yum!, but I’m definitely in favor of one-off shops that reflect the local culture.
