A new pop-up shop from Delta featuring unique items from different Bostons around the world is here to prove that, well, you never have to. Love this Boston? Try another Boston by visiting The Boston to Boston Souvenir Truck shop, open 11 am to 6 pm starting Sept. 19 through Sept. 21 with stops at:

Boston Drive, Florida
Miniature Key Lime Pies
As any chef will tell you, a true Key lime pie has to be made with real Key limes. Voted “Best Pie Shop in Florida” by USA Today, Pink Pie’s founders, Florida native Michael McGowan and wife Paloma Machado-McGowan, have baked that authentic Key lime flavor into every one of their tasty, all-American treats available in several Florida locations, including one near Boston Drive in Hollywood, Florida.

Illustration by Noah Levy
Noah Levy is a Florida-based artist who takes inspiration from his neighborhood, especially the mix between classic art deco architecture, bright tropical plants and happy masses of people enjoying the food and scenery. In this design, look closely for plenty of Floridian details like oranges, flamingos, gators, and even a wild parakeet.
Boston Ravine, California
With original designs made in San Francisco and named for Northern California’s creeks, rivers, mountains, and more, Sunski is a proudly Californian company. At the pop-up, you can choose one of two signature Susnki styles.

Illustration by Charlotte Day
Charlotte Day Day is an English illustrator specializing in beautiful, whimsical patterns that feel uniquely British. Charlotte’s umbrella design features a number of elements that represent Boston, England: the flowers that show flora native to the area, and the teacups represent the long history of tea in Boston. And corgis — in addition to being a favorite pet of the Queen’s — were originally herding dogs in the British countryside, in places like Boston.
Beard Grooming Kits
Men’s Society was built around the idea of giving the perfect gift, like these grooming kits modeled after one co-founder Bella gave co-founder Hugo before a surprise weekend getaway. The couple designs every product at home in England, each perfect for travelers heading anywhere in the world, especially from Boston.
Gin Lover Gift Set
The Gin Lovers gift set includes all kinds of fun accessories for those who enjoy the unique spirit. Gin remains a popular spirit in England to this day, and this kit includes infusion packets for making a flavored gin for cocktails, glasses, stirrers, coasters, and a tasting pad.
Design by Eileen Moylan
For over two decades, award-winning jewelry designer Eileen Moylan has been turning her ideas into reality using gold, silver, and other metals in her workshop in the south of Ireland, not far from Boston.

Aran Sweater Market
Inspired by the wild Atlantic coast of Ireland and the lush, green fields that surround it, Aran Sweater Market has spent decades weaving the genuine feel of Ireland into their wool products. Traditional Irish Aran wool is not stripped of its natural oils before being knitted, which makes it water-resistant and wearable even in rain or snow, making them popular with Irish shepherds near Boston, Ireland and perfect for staying warm during wet, snowy winters in Boston, Mass.
Square de Boston, France
Inspired by the French countryside and its two founders’ memories of growing up in France, each Kerzon candle evokes sights around the country, as well as native plants, spices, fruits, and herbs. With a single breath, find yourself transported to the banks of the Seine, or a Parisian coffee shop.
Square de Boston, France
Every Confiture Parisienne jam is made with unrefined sugar and the finest French ingredients inside of copper cauldrons, which help preserve and accentuate the delicate flavors and aromas of the fruits.
