Best Tacky Souvenirs

Garden of the Gods Trading Post
324 Beckers Lane, Manitou Springs,
685-9045

Sure, the Summit House has refrigerator magnets celebrating their famed high-altitude doughnuts and T-shirts claiming "I Rocked Pikes Peak," but for sheer scope of selection, for breathtaking cheesiness, for the gall with which they think tourists will buy this crap, no place tops the Garden of the Gods Trading Post. From mounted jackelopes for the family room back home to Kokopeli nightlights, from toe rings to key rings, from beer mugs to shot glasses to cat and dog coffee mugs with different breeds in bas relief, this is one-stop shopping for the shameless. Special this week on Bill Clinton dessert plates: $2.98 reduced to $1.98. I may get a dozen. (NH)
