What Odd Souvenirs Grace the Space Needle’s Gift Shop?
So, you’re going on a trip to Seattle Washington. Be sure and visit the space needle. It’s high up in the air, a great view of the city and if you have even a slight fear of heights it will scare the life out of you. Trust me, it’s worth it.
Once you descend from this fantastic view you will be in the gift shop. What tourist doesn’t want a souvenir from their most recent brush with death? I wonder if they have any space needle themed objects?!
Oh boy. Besides the basics: T-Shirt, pen/pencil, shot glass and or magnets what else could you pick? Don’t you worry because the Space Needle has you covered.
Someone in the marketing department needs a raise. They’re in full swing at the Space Needle.
OK, so if you do go there and you really don’t want any Space Needle Gum, what should you get? Another T-Shirt?
NO! They have an original Mold-O-Matic machine from the 1960s that will make you an injected plastic Space needle in 5 minutes. A very cool bit of industrial magic on display! I highly recommend this collectible.
I’ll leave you with some video I shot from the top of the Space Needle.
I’m just a geek with a full set of power tools and some crazy ideas I want to try out.
