Tip #42 - Treasure That Moment with Artwork

You want to get something to remember your trip by but you'd rather it not be some plastic junk from the airport or souvenir shop?  Artwork not only makes a great way to remember your amazing vacation but it allows you to bring a little piece of that vacation back home.  Consider buying yourself a small painting, piece of pottery or handcrafted jewelry--just make sure it's locally made and if you have the opportunity to meet the artist, all the better. You may also want to have the piece(s) of artwork specially wrapped for travel, by the merchant.
