VW Swag

Over the past few months, between birthdays and holidays, we managed to receive quite a few Volkswagen-themed gifts.  It is nice to know we have a reputation among friends and family and also that they think of us whenever they come upon anything VW-related.  Of course, we (my wife and I) perpetuate the VW-love affair when it comes to the children 🙂

One of my favorite birthday gifts this year – a model of a 1962 VW firetruck I received from my brother-in-law’s family.

This model is very well done, with an eye for detail

For Christmas, my sister gave me this print of Volkswagens arriving at the harbor in Baltimore, Maryland during the year 1956. How many different models can you find?

My In-laws found this USB Bus thumb drive. Very cool! Hoping it’s a bit faster then the real thing.

Martha found this for $5 on the discount rack at Marshall’s of all places. Definitely worth the price and I just love the stereotypical hippy and herb theme

Comes with a lid and silicon seals for uses other than as an herb planter

I found this lunch box for my son this holiday season. It’s a bit narrow, but works well.

Martha and I found this towel at a shop in downtown Fredericksburg, VA. The owner said they used to have ones with buses – you can be sure we’ll be back to check for them.
