Souvenirs from Home

Reminders of Why We Live Here

While a souvenir is typically a small memento from an unforgettable visit, for folks living in Central Oregon, they are reminders of just how lucky we are to live here every day. A bumper sticker announcing, “My life is your vacation,” may not be subtle, but memorabilia like Bend-OR-abilia confirms there’s no place like home.
