Corner View: Souvenir

As you have seen in some of my previous posts, University of Florida athletics are a big deal here in Gainesville. Our winning basketball team and football team are a big draw for out-of-town guests whenever there is a home game, so I would have to say that Gator ( The University team name) merchandise is the biggest selling souvenirs here.

The nice people at Gator Fever, next to the Walmart on Archer Road, let me take pictures around their store, so I could show you just how diverse Gator merchandise can be.

Wow...that was fun to see! There really is wide variety of Gator merchandise available. :)

Kimmie said...

it's a little hard to understand why someone would need a bistro table and chair set with a gator on it ..... must be why it's gator "fever" .... :)

Have you considered giving the boy a haircut?

Crescent Moon said...

Yes, there has been much talk about how both Blaze and DH need hair cuts, but talking about it and doing it are two different things.

Yeehaw. Reminds me of the time we were visitng family in FLA and someone remarked, as if it were a common occurence, "There's was an alligator in the pool last night."

Great post and that truly is Gator city!!

That is just pure fun to walk through that store. I guess I would choose the polka dot dress. Every girl needs one of those with some gators on it. ;)
Have a great weekend!
