Out of Towners!

So, my next thing to tackle are the OOT bags! We have several rooms booked to my happiness!! We have several guests flying in from Los Angeles and I want to make sure I supply items that are unique to PA....the east coast. As I was searching..I came across this post on weddingbee. They mention items that are unique to different areas...very helpful!

For the Philadelphia area it shares:
  • Tastykakes, Soft Pretzels, Goldenberg's Peanut Chews, Yards Beer, Wissahickon Water, Directions to Tony Luke's
  • Liberty Bell postcards, Cheez Whiz, Herr's Chips, Hershey's kisses!
So, I figure I would go off this list but focus on the local town nearby, Gettysburg which is a huge area for civil war buffs. It is a tourist area and I plan on supplying info on "things to do."

Now, what do I put all this wonderful stuff into? Well, this will be tricky. I am currently loving the gable boxes! Check out Mrs. Sushi's OOT gable boxes!! But at the same time I must remind myself of my budget!!!

Very adorable....Has anyone ordered any? Know of any specific site? Any suggestions as to whatelse to add to the OOT boxes?

You definitely need to include Hershey's kisses! (We're putting them in our OOT bags, too.) I can't wait to hear what other local goodies you come up with!
