The Craps Souvenirs.com site presents some of the world’s most kitschy and tacky travel memories.
Travel Souvenir-Kitsch… but it sells!
Memories that nobody wants and which everyone mocks that, however, continue to sell very well… strange. Like a porcelain plate that functions as a clock, an obsolete souvenir of London, a thimble with the effigy of Princess Kate in case you already have the one of Lady Di or a Parisian handbag in the shape of a bustier.
In London difficult not to fall under the spell of a souvenir of the royal couple!
If the memories presented are not always of the best taste and are even rarely of good taste – sensitive souls abstain – Many are funny and do not fail to remind us of our worst memories of travels.
Travel Souvenir-Kitsch is global!
But the British and the French are not the only ones to pay for the collection of Crapsouvenirs, we find in fact vile objects from all over the world.
Useless objects that you would never dare to hang on one of your walls, clothes that can obviously not be worn otherwise than to sleep… By the time we see these articles, in a market at the end of the world or in an unlikely store, we sincerely believe that it is not conceivable to return without them.
To remember the fog of San Francisco: Fog in a cane!
It is the day of the return home or maybe a few days after, at the latest, that we realize the huge mistake we made.
Among the most ridiculous memories that often end up being lost or thrown away, we find the miniature representations of the monuments that we visited.
It’s a souvenir that sells on the outskirts of major tourist sites no matter which country you’re in. As if it was not enough to have taken a hundred photos, we do not know exactly why but we need to materialize the tour with a souvenir of travel to bring back.
Did you really think you could use this lamp?!?
Sometimes souvenirs are a priori useful objects, like coffee mugs for example. But we encumber our luggage with dishes that cost ten times its true value and which has no “authenticity”.
The visit to the site of Crap souvenirs is an opportunity to remember all these memories that we were able to bring home. If you still have yours somewhere, maybe it’s time to get them out of the closet and see if they still have any effect on you.
