Well, that's a hard question to answer....by nature, I'm pretty tacky myself, so I would need to step outside of me and look back in to make the determinaton.

When I lived in Florida, I once bought (and displayed on my front bumper) a license plate that said "Get your (heart icon) in Dixie, or get your (drawing of the rear end of donkey) out".  That seems fairly tacky, as I think back on it.

I guess tacky is in the eyes of the beholder. I have many different versions of this t-shirt. There are only two locations left to my knowledge. Destin FL. (the original bar) and Key West (been in that one more times than any other)

But I have been in a Hogs Breath Saloon in Walton Beach FL. two New Orleans LA, and one in Cancun MX.

The one in Cancun stands out because we went there for X-Mas. NOBODY goes to Cancun for X-Mas. The town was pretty much deserted, and we had the run of the place. I ended up behind the bar with the owner and his pit bull doing shots of Jose Cuervo. Gold. (no the dog wasn't drinking)


Thanks, Tee, for clarifying that:  the dog wasn't drinking.  And thanks, Mrs. Moody, for making me notice every misplaced modifier.  Apparently, Tee and I had some good English teachers.

I went to Williamsburg and bought a wreath that looked really cool down there with all those other colonial looking things, but when I got it back to the house, it just looked ridiculously large and out of place.  It got even worse once the fruit and stuff started falling off of it.

I once gave a young lady a 1850's style broom around Mother's Day.

OK, I was hoping this thread would just fade away so i wouldn't have to do this. I'm pretty sure this is tackier than anything else posted so far. A sea shell and pink flamingo lamp. And yes, there is pink bulb to light up the shell.

"LOVE" this!!!  Can I have it?   When my son was little I bought him an alligator claw  back scratcher!  Then a shark fetus in a jar followed by a scorpion Bollo tie.  Cool stuff!   When I was little it was rabbit foot key chains and rabbit pelts!

Sorry Jaylee, my wife won't part with this. She has a thing for flamingos. About a month ago, I was at the flea market and saw one of these but abut twice the size. 2 large shells, (both w/lights), lots of smaller shells, and I think there were 4 or 5 flamingos. I didn't buy it (I had no idea where to put it) but when I told my wife about it she was kinda bummed out that I didn't get it. 

Maybe I could send you a lighted flamingo. She has 3 but we haven't figured out where to put the 3rd one just yet.
