I've seen very similar situations....makes you wonder what folks are thinking. Well so far I haven't brought anything outrageous home. My favorite souvenir is a blanket from Cozumel. I love it. Paid more than I should have, but oh well!!!!!

About 10 years ago on a trip to Cancun, Mexico hubby had to have handcarved marble table lamps. Store made a Mexican Suitcase out of the box they packed them in, complete with handles. The box weighed at least 50 pounds. He hand carried the box all the way home, as carry one luggage. Can't see the airlines allowing that today. They look great in our livingroom still. Sopose will have to die before I will ever get rid of them though.
