A new idea for bringing home memories
|9 & 4 - my Birthday.|
So many people ask me why I have
earrings that say $4 ???
But my trip to New Mexico is where my shift in souvenir buying really happened. I picked up this pair of earrings in a museum shop. There are recycled typewriter keys, you could go through the basket and “make your own pair”. I have worn them at least a hundred of times. They are unique, conversation starter and a nice reminder of a great vacation.
So now when I travel I glance over the t-shirts, magnets and knickknacks. I go looking for things I will wear more often, for me it is jewelry (like the black pearl pendant I got in Hawaii) or a great tote bag. Something I can wear or use on a day to day basis that is more understated but long lasting. Also, when I am on the hunt for jewelry, I try to buy from local artist, to get things I can’t get anywhere else.
