when they buy a souvenir from America and find out it was made in China."
This past week I spent some time finishing a clean out of my Mom's house. She had kept many (did I say MANY!) souvenirs from trips she and my Dad had taken. The problem is that the "treasures" were swizzle sticks, coasters, brochures, and pens. Nothing along the lines of antique/vintage souvenirs that I buy for the shop.
"Historical Staffordshire," made in that English region from the 1820s, depicted scenes of American communities and historical figures.
Going through all those souvenirs was rather overwhelming, but it did show that my parents had rather spirited and joyous travels. What will the children of today uncover after 50-60 years of their parents' lives? There is a thought to ponder in the new year!
