I think probably my favorite thing about earrings is that they make a uniquely fun, wearable souvenir that will last for decades.
I always hate when I go somewhere and I just can’t find a good trinket to remember my trip by. Lots of individuals tell me that it should just be about the memories and not to just throw away money on items, but earrings are different.
I look at them and I remember the fun times. Even more than looking at them, I wear them! Because, why not? Why get something that will collect dust when I could just as well flaunt my souvenirs, matching my shoes or other accessories?
I have dozens of souvenir earrings that I absolutely love and am excited to share with everyone.
The first set I want to share is these beauties I picked up at the Shoshone – Bannock Reservation in Idaho. They have a small tribal museum at Fort Hall that is worth the stop. Inside their gift shop they sell local beadwork, like the pair I nabbed.
