Get yer Holy Sepulchre placemats


For ABC Wednesday,  C is for CIC,  the Christian Information Center at Jaffa Gate, just inside the Old City.
I like to drop in and see what new exhibit they have, or what activities are publicized, or what is on their bulletin boards.

A year ago, in May, I was somehow taken aback to find table mats for sale.
Imagine eating breakfast on a placemat of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
Only $5 each.
Really.  Click on the photo twice and take a close look.

The big poster with the Stations of the Cross is pretty nice, though.
Only 4 Euros.

The worst thing it is that someone will actually buy this stuff!

The poster and placemats are beautiful. These are good souvenirs.
I hope you are doing fine.
Have a great week.

what magnificent mats!

What will they think of next? They are rather interesting, however, to study. I like the 3D views inside.

I like it :) Are the little ones mouse pads?

Honestly, some things are just wrong. While I can certainly understand the need to take back something to remember your time in Jerusalem by...but placemats?

I dunno. Thanks Dina for the post.

Love the title; makes it sound like a carnival barker!

Hmm... interesting as souvenirs, perhaps, not too sure I'd place them on a dining table and have my meal on them... but I suppose tourists will buy just about anything. I am guilty of some odd things in my past while out visiting places *grin*.. (HUG)

I guess eating on that mat every morning starts off the day with the admonition to behave yourself.

Thanks for the laugh, Dina. I like that stations of the cross poster. I think it would work on my office wall.

I like it, but it will not fit in my kitchen
