What's Your Biggest Souvenir + How Did You Get It Home?

Just because most of us live in small spaces doesn't mean we can't fall in love with a large souvenir on our travels! Sometimes the perfect find is far from home and a real bear to bring back. But it can be oh so worth it:My aunt and uncle's home is furnished with tons of antique furniture they purchased in Germany. It's one-of-a-kind now that it's back here in the States, but getting it here surely couldn't have been easy.

As for myself, I've never brought home something larger than what I could carry. I think the largest item was an antique apothecary-style glass vase, which was carried with much care on an airplane only to be broken at home while I was cleaning it (boo hoo!).

Tell us, what's your biggest souvenir? Any tips or tricks for getting them home?
