Every now and again the Junk Lady comes across pieces of Americana that had been picked up on a road trip for a remembrance or a gift for a loved one.

One of my favorites is a candy dish from the Old Original Bookbinder’s in Philadelphia. Looks like the Old Original is now the ‘new’ Olde Bar, having been rejuvenated late last year.

Another favorite is a heart-shaped candy dish (or wall hanging) from the St. Louis Zoo. It has a painted gold rim with heart-shaped piercings around the edge – it is fancy! What souvenirs have you kept from your travels or from those of your parents?
