Vazu Collapsible Vase:
Cool Product We Regret Not Purchasing On Our Trip

22309-vazu01.jpgA few weeks ago, when we were in Buenos Aires, at the end of the last day of our trip, we stumbled upon the Vazu vase...

A flexible and expandable vase made in Israel from a composition of polymers layers, it is sold completely flat, slightly resembling those printed triangular florist bags, but then, after being filled with water, it pops open to resemble a oool patterned glass vase. We hemmed and hawed: "This would make a great gift for the AT Team," "What a great hostess gift along with flowers." But then, because we'd already hit the trip budget, we put it back: "Nah, it's the kind of thing we'll drag back and then find at one store or another in Silverlake." So, we passed it up. We've spent the last two weeks combing stores to find it. No luck. Then, just this morning, we discovered an online source. Lesson learned? Go for it.

Have you ever gone on a trip, saw something cool and not purchased it?
