NEW JERSEY TURNPIKE PENNANT

Ginger loved to play the consummate tourist and so she loved to collect a piece of memorabilia where ever she traveled. Usually that piece of memorabilia took the form of a pennant--they were colorful, lightweight and easy to pack (after all Ginger was practical as well). So for thirty years, Ginger would pick a representative pennant from each stop of significance during her family's many road trips across the U.S.A. They were her trophies of conquered attractions, watermarks of wonderment. Years later, she could look through her collection of old pennants and memories of those days would flood back--a never ending road trip for the mind.

Ginger picked up this big pennant at a souvenir store along the famous New Jersey Turnpike. It has a bird's eye view of a turnpike interchange. This large 26" (66cm) long pennant is made of green wool felt and is 9" (23cm) at its widest with four gold 4" (10cm) tassels. There's also a gold border. We think this one is from the 1960s. Dripping with kitschy road trip charm!

CONDITION:
This old pennant is in great vintage shape. The base felt is just slightly faded with age and the screen printing is still bright. The stitching is also in good condition. We found no moth holes, rips or tears and no pinholes.
