    The Souvenir Table - Buyers Remorse?

    I have to admit I can't seem to resist the souvenir table at most events lately - skating and rock shows. Last night at Stars on Ice I ended up buying another t-shirt, a bag and an autographed picture of Kurt! I never used to purchase anything at these events. Anyone else experience some "buyers remorse" after seeing a show?

    Actually, no not remorse, but it's funny how often the merch just sits in my closets for years untouched afterwards.

    You can donate all your stuff to the silent auction at your local club's next fund-raiser. I donated my two Michelle Kwan snowglobes, then had donator's remorse and went out an bought one on ebay.

    That's why I don't buy anything.

    Good idea. I have the Michelle Snowglobe from 2002, and I will NOT part with it!

    I didn't know there was a Michelle snowglobe, so I looked on ebay and there is one for sale.

    This got me thinking - Did Michelle ever actually skate to "Fur Elise?"

    ^ I am pretty sure she did not. I think it's just a pretty music box song.

    Looked at her programs from 1993-2005 and did not see it listed.

    My snowglobes are still boxed and in a closet. I also have a Kristi Yamaguchi bobble head doll, COI etched crystal anniversary item and a small bronze statue to commemorate the 2002 Olympics, 2 burger king kids meal toys sponsored by USFSA and the Ekaterina Gordeeva Lenox figurine. Assorted SOI programs including one from the Grinkov Memorial which was my 1st SOI. Assorted skating books, etc.
