I finally went into one of the souvenir shops here on Cape Cod. It’s one of those places that litters the front of their building with blow up rafts and signs for locally made salt water taffy. I was surprised at the amount of kitsch in this shop and portions of it was almost like stepping back into time. For instance, I had no idea things like these were still being made.
