DNC vendors sell souvenirs of all kinds

Posted: Updated:

With the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, lots of vendors are also in town. They are selling souvenirs of all kinds.

In Uptown Charlotte, there is a place that anyone can go...if they want fun souvenirs from the Democrat side of the aisle. A few dozen vendors have set up shop set up just outside the Convention Center, between College and Tryon streets.

It's not just any shop though - it's a tent city and vendors are selling everything from beaded Obama shirts, to sweet treats like DNC marshmallows. There are all kinds of clothing and jewelry for sale. Plus there's a smiling cutout of the President...take a picture with him and show it off to your friends.

New York delegate Maimun Khan explains the appeal of the tent shop, "I've been having a lot of fun seeing how much is hand-crafted and creative. That's just been so much fun."

Khan told WBTV she's bought a lot of campaign buttons, and she's still on the search for more.
