Are these the world's tackiest souvenirs?

Doug Lansky has spent decades collecting tacky souvenirs. Now he wants you to show him yours

Doug Lanksy is a man who enjoys the quirkier side of travel. His popular Signspotting books celebrated funny and absurd signs from around the world.

Now he has turned his cocked eye towards tacky and kitsch souvenirs. Doug is asking people to share their ill-considered purchases on his web site TackySouvenirs.com.

Check out the images above to see a choice selection of Doug's tacky offerings.

I'm going to dust off the Lemur Lamp I bought in Madagascar back in 2001... But we want to know about your tacky souvernirs, tell us below.
