Souvenirs are often craptacular. Australian souvenirs can be particularly embarrassing- clippy koala or ornamental boomerang anyone? We were very excited when we found the work of Make Me Iconic at our local bookshop; Melbourne themed souvenirs/homewares of places and things that locals find iconic.
From the Nylex Clock to Richmond's Audrey [of Skipping Girl Vinegar], Make Me Iconic have got it. Did you enjoy the confusion that are hook-turns while driving in Melbourne's CBD? No doubt you'd love a tea towel with the signage on it! Of course these aren't just souvenirs, they are attractive homewares in their own right. The good husband was fortunate enough to receive a limited edition print of the Nylex Clock as a birthday present over the weekend and it's taken pride of place on our living room wall.
