The colorful vintage / retro look is very appealing to collectors and are quite the conversation piece. Some have a vintage patina and some look like they are brand new even if they are over 50 or 60 years old. They are wearable postcards and miniature works of art. Women documented their travels by collecting a souvenir shield charm depicting the town or country coat of arms crest, a scenic picture of the area, castles, a famous landmark (Eiffel Tower), building (White House), person from history (Mozart) or an event (Olympics). These charms were often given to women as gifts from their men who were traveling abroad. spacer type="block" height="1" width="1" Â Wikipedia Info: Kitzbuhel is a lively, cosy Alpine resort offering great skiing as well as fantastic entertainment and an extensive Aprï¿s Ski life. With its truly magical setting, this charming 13th Century village is an ideal destination for a ski holiday. A member of the "Best of the Alps Resorts", Kitzbuhel attracts skiers of all abilities who enjoy its 165km of well-maintained ski runs and flock to watch its world-famous annual Hahnenkamm downhill race. When they're not skiing, visitors enjoy a wide variety of pubs and restaurants, disco's and nightclubs as well as extensive daytime facilities and fabulous shopping. The Kitzbï¿heler Horn, northeast of Kitzbï¿hel (1,998m/6,555ft; house on the summit (Gipfelhaus), chapel, restaurant, radio mast), can be easily reached by cableway via the Pletzeralm (1,273m/4,177ft) or climbed from Kitzbï¿hel in four to five hours.
