We have a few groomsman coming in from out of state for our wedding and I thought it would be a great idea to include some pittsburgh themed items for the Out of Town bags. I am including mini Heinz ketchups, clark bars, snyders chips, and have contacted the Heinze company about getting pickle pins. Can anyone think of any other items that are free or close to free that I can include? I am also including various other snack and toiletry items, so if anyone has ideas for other items, I’m all for that too. Also i wanted to share a site I found for purchasing travel size items with the hive: http://www.minimus.biz It’s really good for the emergency kits that im creating too.

Not free, but I was thinking of something from Pittsburgh Popcorn Company..
Iron City Beer? or Klondikes in the freezer 😉

I read about a lot of people purchasing those pickle pins but was curious if anyone knew off hand where you can purchase the Heinz pickle or ketchup pins? All the posts on them are several years old. Thanks guys!

The gift shop at the Heinz History Center has those pins. You can get them online also. I think they’re like 25 cents.
The history center is in the strip district and I think you can go into the store without going through the history center.
They also have pencils and keychains and little stuff like that that’s all about Pittsburgh.
Station Square and South Side has some shops with pretty good “Pittsburgh items” too.

Not free, but not very expensive either – a few pieces of Fudgie Wudgie is a nice little snack 🙂
