Clay critters

Magnet #1188 - North Carolina Black Bears

I couldn't resist picking this magnet up at the Charlotte airport to close out my latest Escape Home to NYC trip.

I've seen black bears in North Carolina in three places: Dan Nicholas Park down the road, the Asheboro zoo, and Grandfather Mountain - all of them were captive, though, so I totes don't count 'em. But people are sighting random bears all across North Carolina, so one day, I want to find one in my back yard. I'll be waiting.

Huh. So here's something that could potentially be scary for me - as a magnet collector.

I've found the wholesaler for these magnets I keep seeing. It's called Clay Critters, an 18-person company out in Indianapolis that produces all those cool (and expensive) airport magnets.

Totally afraid to look at their catalog for fear that I might find enough items in there to qualify me for wholesale buying.

And then this blog would never. ever. end!
