Souvenir compacts were so popular from the 1920-50s. Go on vacation and you bought yourself a memento of your fun time. And what better souvenir than a compact! Now you can collect them from all 50 states and from all over the world. And if you crossed the seas, of course you bought a compact to commemorate the ocean liner. A great history of the souvenir ship compacts can be found in Laura Mueller's Compact Book, volume two. If you're looking for a particular souvenir compact or ocean liner compact, please contact me!
