Strange souvenirs

I don’t think I’ve ever come home with so many random things after a trip in my life. I feel like I made out like a bandit. I’m really excited about my souvenirs. I came home from Nashville with…

A giant model of an eyeball! It’s too large to fit in my built in cabinets so it’s hanging out in my living room. It still takes me by surprise every time I walk out of the kitchen and see it out of the corner of my eye. It’s in excellent shape and worth so much more than I paid for it. I’m super stoked to add it to my collection of medical models.

A poster on the development of the human dentition, partials, a dental tray, a see-through tooth model, and horse. The tooth related items were bought from one of the taxidermy class students. I’ve been on the hunt for awesome things for my walls since they’re still pretty bare so my ears perked up when he mentioned that he had recently purchased some dental items from an estate sale. The horse is a gift from Jerry of Jerry’s Junk. He had a huge box of them and gave Mickey and I each one to take. At first I was like “Great! What am I going to do with this?!” But it’s grown on me, I actually rather like it on my shelf.

A Louisville, KY pennant, and a spiffy new calendar. I think collecting pennants from places I visit might be my new thing, it’d be such a neat little collection! The calendar was bought from Pulp, which is the cutest little paper goods shop. It’s located in Nashville, a total must visit if you’re in the area.

My absolute favorite of the trip, and probably the best thing I’ve bought in a LONG time is this anatomical man. He’s missing his removable pieces but is such a solid, well built piece I had to have him. It was one of the first things I spotted at Jerry’s Junk. I definitely didn’t think I’d leave with it. I ultimately decided it was worth the splurge for a multitude of reasons after asking Jerry how much he’d want for it.
