Too funny. I have lots of souvenirs but I don't think any of them are tacky. I have a mug and a fluted glass from a cruise my husband and I took. I have a wooden shoe from somewhere in Europe, a bell from St. Louis, a ceramic trolley from Harrod's in London, a blue delft pot from Holland (?), and a tiny creche from Israel, all were brought to me from the travels my sons took before they married and settled down. I love them all and all are very tasteful.
