1.  Market Vases

Francesca found this striking collection of vases at market in Istanbul, Turkey.

2. A Wall of Tea

Helen snapped this collection of teas at Granville Island Market in Vancouver.

3. If You Broke it, You Buy it

Extreme adventurer Brad raced a rickshaw over 1500 miles across India. When this panel fell off the side of the rickshaw, Brad packed it up and took it home with him as a souvenir.

4. An Unexpected American Souvenir

Aussie Sharon was surprised at the kinds of souvenirs available in Venice Beach, California. Might be tricky to get this through customs.

5. Tiki Madness

Have a fruity tropical drink, then bring home the mug at this great San Francisco bar, Smuggler’s Cove.

6. I Know it’s all Staged, But Still

This designer’s feed was recently featured in the New York Times— now I am kind of obsessed with its boarding school-meets-Moonrise Kingdom vibe. Love this Nantucket shop photo.

7.  Souvenirs are even Better when they’re Gifts

Amy loves it when friends bring back souvenir gifts from their travels– like this fresh Colombian coffee from @veggienextdoor.

8. Flea Market Finds?

I love shopping flea markets, you’ll never know what you might find. Almost tripped over this bin of creepy dolls at the Golden Nugget Flea in Lambertville, New Jersey.

Love this idea! I especially like the loose tea! I discovered there's a huge tea culture in Germany because of the shipping routes from the east to Europe. There's more than just beer brewin' in Germany!

I love this post, Kristin. So many great photos. Thanks for including mine, although I wouldn't recommend anyone flipping their rickshaw on the highway just to get the parts that fall off, ha!
