“Let’s face it, the souvenir industry sucks!” says the company’s website. “No matter what city you visit, you’re bound to be trapped in a crowded downtown shop lined with the exact same items you saw on your last adventure.” Main and Local says guests can find souvenirs that really resonate with their city.
Bagel and poutine tree ornaments are exactly that.
“So realistic, so delicious, so Canadian,” reads the product description. “This Poutine Ornament will make the tree look delicious.”
Sticking to the gravy side, the shop also sells a poutine candle that burns for up to 36 hours and smells like coconut cream.
But if you’re hanging Montreal food, you can’t leave out the sesame seed bagel, which sells for $12.99 (the same as the poutine ornament).
Along with a slew of other Canadian accessories, the shop also sells “Quebec French Swear Words Socks,” a “Phoque Off Door Mat,” and poutine pyjamas. Visit the Main and Local website for more pictures and prices.
